The Bering Sea Crab Boat and it's crew put on on fabulous show. From Captain Terry to the crew, they are entertaining, informative, educational and fun! These people love what they do and it's catching. We saw and played with the crabs. We say many bald eagles. The explanation of the crab traps and how they work was fascinating. Our... More

From start to finish just a wonderful experience with a knowledgeable, entertaining Captain and crew. As a loyal fan of Deadliest Catch, I couldn't have imagined a better on-board tour of the ins and outs of various crab fishing techniques and long-line demonstrations. Witnessing several eagles catching fish near the boat was an added bonus! Great trip for kids, adults... More

We had a hard time deciding what to do in Ketchikan and will say this was one of the best tours we have taken in our lifetime. The stories by the fisherman were memorable about third difficult experiences, hard work, injuries and risk they take. The highlight was the catching of the crabs, holding them, catching of octopus and all... More

These people love their job and it shows! Such a fun few hours full of stories, catching and learning about different crabs, and sightseeing. I would highly recommend this tour. It was even raining and we had a blast. The guides capture your attention the whole time. Nicely done!

A group of us from Singles Travel International took this excursion while on board the Celebrity Solstice. The crew had a great delivery, real-life stories, humor, and education all rolled into one. We had a rainy day and the guys didn't miss a beat. We came away with an appreciation of the life of commercial fishermen and what it takes... More

The crew's presentation made a lot things clear that a person sees on the Deadliest Catch. The time flew by as the crew showed us every aspect of crab fishing, long line fishing and prawn fishing. It looks like... More

My wife and I are big "Deadliest Catch" fans. We found the tour extremely informative and enertaining. The stories from the crew about their exploits on the Bearing Sea, the crab fishing, weather conditions, and challenges were awesome. Learning about the fishing, crabbing and the steps taken to preserve the grounds where the fishing takes place was intoxicating. The love... More
