Come aboard the "Aleutian Ballad" crabbing vessel as seen on season 2 of the Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch". Depart Ketchikan Alaska for a 3 hour trip to catch king crab, snow crab, octopus, fish, prawns and more. This tour also features some of the best eagle viewing on the planet. Share the allure and adventure that draw fishermen to the sea. Fishing legends that have worked the Bering Sea are your guides, some you may have seen on TV. The vessel has been retrofitted for guests comfort and fun, with a "live" tank on deck to allow for closer viewing of the wondrous creatures brought on board. Guests stay warm, dry and comfortable while we sail calm and protected waters. This is the REAL ALASKA and you won't want to miss it!

This tour was amazing. It was set on the Deadliest Catch show boat from Season 2. The guides were former crab fishermen, and they showed us all that goes into fishing for crab in the Bering Sea. One of the highlights of the tour was when they stopped into a cove, threw herring off the boat, and at least 30-50... More

I had seen so many rave reviews about this tour so finally picked it over the other ones. Turned out to be rather dull. Yes we saw some king crab being pulled from the ocean but it was disappointing and somehow boring nonetheless.

Hospitality, education, and sight seeing are all top shelf aboard the Ballad! Knowledgeable staff, inviting owners and scenery that's worth every penny within the boundaries of safe waters so all can enjoy! Would do it again and have recommended to many others! If you're a "deadliest" fan, do NOT miss this opportunity to experience the adventure without the ice and... More

This was the very first thing booked when we started planning our Alaskan trip. I've watched Deadliest Catch since the start, and knew i needed to get onboard the Aleutian Ballad Me see some pots pulled for myself. Not only is this trip the only one like it out there, they have a unique relationship with a local group that... More

We thought the excursion was good bang for our buck. The captains were funny and engaging, we learned a lot, and it was just plain fun. The Eagles were incredible. I would highly recommend this excursion.

As the title says, we enjoyed this tour so much the first time we did it in 2012 that when we cruised in Alaska again this year, we did the tour again and enjoyed it just as much. While I enjoyed seeing the crabs and other sea life, my favorite part was the eagles! Just as I did last time,... More
