My husband and I enjoyed an Alaska cruise in mid-July. We filled our time in the three ports we visited with recommended excursions. We went whale watching in Juneau and rode the White Pass and Yukon train to Frazier, BC from Skagway. Both were very decent excursions and we had a wonderful time and got some great pictures. However, the Bering Sea Crab Fisherman's Tour put them to shame. We boarded the Aleutian Ballad when it was almost full and still had great seats! The demonstrations, stories and anecdotes shared by the crew and captain were very entertaining. Allowing the guests to participate by holding the day's catch of crabs, starfish and prawns added an interactive experience that you really don't get on most excursions. But the highlight was the stop we made about half way through. They told us to grab our cameras and find a spot with a view and then they started tossing chunks of fish into the water. First one beautiful bald eagle began flying toward the boat, then another and another and another... There must have been twenty bald eagles circling and swooping down a few yards in front of us. It was absolutely awesome! If you're ever in Ketchikan, be sure to check this one out.
