This was one of the best excursions we have ever taken! The crew was amazing. Impossible to rate it high enough. Don't pass this one up!
It was a greaT EXPERIENCE ...PLEASANT CREW, KNOWLEDGable..........left on time, got back in time,,,,,saw and learned many things
This is an excellent, fun and educational excursion. The crew is friendly, full of life and informative. The feeding of the Bald Eagles was a delight. I enjoyed the whole experience.
Right at foot of gangplank. Fun crew. Good seating. Super friendly staff.educational too.
If you are a fan of Deadliest Catch you will love this tour. Great crew, great commentary. Loved it
I could not have asked for a better tour, I booked it for my husband thinking he would enjoy it, but he couldn't have enjoyed it any better that me.....it was truly a wonderful tour, the the staff on the boat were amazing!!!!!!
This was a superb experience from start to finish..the Aleutian Ballad just happened to be moored right next to our cruise ship so there were no worries getting to it on time. Anyone reading this has probably already done their homework and realised that this vessel was a genuine crab fishing vessel and featured on the Discovery Channel..Deadliest Catch. The crew are not tour guides but genuine ex fishermen with tales a plenty to tell...mostly scary tales of near death experiences...but they also give an insight into how the life of a fisherman impacts on you and those around you. Nets are hauled up from the sea bed and plenty of crabs are seen and some held by yourselves if you wish. Another memorable moment is seeing a colony of bald eagles swooping down for fish in the water in front of you....plenty of photo opportunities and great memories...oh..and my wife wanted to know when fisherman suddenly became so good looking...never seen her so attentive..
Excellent, had a great time. The captains and deck hand were wonderful. Told amazing stories about fishing, boats, fishermen. The Eagles were amazing. Highly recommend.
It was so fantastic that words can't describe how much we enjoyed the tour. The hosts were very informative and fun and knowledgeable, that we were in awe. Captivating.
A little costly but a very good couple of hours. Learned a few things and was very glad I took the tour.
All the reviews for this excursion were positive so we gave it a try. This was a fun trip with great host, I would do it again. there were all kinds of ocean critters to view and experience. A
This your was recommended to me by a coworker who traveled to Alaska just 3 weeks before me. He told me I would love it and he was right!! The captains who take care of the ship and the rest of the crew were amazing and so welcoming that they felt like family by the end of the 3 hour tour. They each shared their experiences with The Bering Sea and the vessels they worked on and were able to answer everyone's questions. If you wanted a photo, no problem! They took the time to make sure each and everyone aboard enjoyed every minute of their experience. I would do this again in a heartbeat!!
If you want to see Alaskan wildlife this is a great tour. The eagles got up close and personal. We got a chance to see an octopus and of course the king crabs. A must see for the young and old alike. The guides were informative and entertaining.
Fantastic trip. Loved seeing the Eagles flying in so close to the ship. That was the highlight. No halibut on the line they checked, that was a bummer. Enjoyed the prawns basket and the lobster basket demonstrations. The lobster basket was rock and snow lobster. We were allowed to hold lobsters and prawns. Beautiful day.
We loved this tour, the crew is so nice and have the best stories of fishing on the Bering sea. I could have stayed longer just listening to them. We were able to see bald eagles feeding tons of them and a nest. But the best part was to see what the crew catch abd letting us hold crabs and other sealife. One octopus that they capture spat water on a crew member and passenger. He was mad of being held captive!
Very well done and very informative. The staff was really engaging and informative
Top tour of all of the 8 tours we took through out Alaska.
These guys are funny, and tell great past stories.
Do not miss.
I would highly recommend this excursion for anyone, including family young and old. You get to see and HOLD different types of crabs and pawns. Also, I saw an octopus and lots of bald eagles.
The crews was fun and very accommodating. They gave everyone a coat to keep warm and FREE hot chocolate and coffee. It was a great experience!
Second time for this excursion and it is always a fascinating tour...will do it on every visit to Ketchikan and will strongly suggest everyone traveling to Ketchikan to take this tour...
This was one of our favorite shore excursions by far. We lucked out with the weather and the crew was amazing! It was a great learning experience with a added plus of spotting whales and many eagles. We would highly recommend this excursion!
We had a great time on the tour. The guys were great at explaining what they were doing and made us feel at home. So energetic about their work. The stories were interesting and moving - enjoyed them a lot. The girls were very good at engaging the visitors and hamming it up with the crabs and fish. The boat and a facilities were very good. We learned a lot about fishing and the local environment. Thanks for the great time. Tom Tobin
