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!

A great excursion. Everyone on board was super nice. The guys who did the presentations were funny and knowledgeable.The wildlife (especially the eagles) was incredible. My Dad (83 years old) really enjoyed himself. One of the crew was also kind enough to give my Dad a ride back to the ship since the excursion was farther away from the ship... More

OK, so here is the bottom line. This is a fun, interesting, informative, relaxing and wonderful tour - regardless if you watch the TV show "Deadliest Catch" or not. We booked the tour through the cruise ship as part of our Alaskan cruise. You should feel confident booking it directly as well. The tour boat is docked at the same... More

Not quite like I expected, it was so much more! Entertaining, informative, fantastic! I must admit we are not fans of the TV show but this was definitely one of our highlights on our trip. If you get the chance DO IT!! These guys are the real deal. Take your family, they will thank you.

As a Deadliest Catch fan, I was very pleased with the tour and ride. They provided a lot of entertaining and useful information about crab fishing and fishing in Alaska. The ride took us out to see how they use different pots. We got to see eagles swoop down for fish. The live crab to see and hold was a... More

This tour is fun, educational, and full of surprises. Be sure to bring your camera, because you never know what delightful creatures may appear. ( Who knows it may be anything from crabs, to starfish, perhaps an octopus, or a magnificent eagle.) Learn all about sea life, the hard work of a crab fisherman and what it takes to bring... More

This was an amazing tour with wonderful real fisherman, with real stories. Made you really appreciate this grueling business and all of their sacrifices both physical and personal as well as having to deal mother nature with frigid temperatures and rough seas. I find myself watching "Deadliest Catch" episodes! Thank you guys for a great day!
