Tour Overview

On this active Ketchikan day tour, explore the waters of Southeast Alaska’s Inside Passage aboard the Aleutian Ballad, an authentic commercial crabbing vessel, made famous by the show “Deadliest Catch”. Learn about the vessel and its colorful history while you cruise to the fishing grounds with local commercial fishermen. Once there, watch your Ketchikan crew as they haul out Bering Sea king crab pots, each weighing over 700 pounds. Dungeness crab, box crab, octopus and prawns, will be carefully retrieved and placed in a live tank for you to see, touch and photograph. You may even get to hold a King Crab!

The tour remains in the calm protected waterways of the Inside Passage around Ketchikan.
