Owner description: 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 is one of the best trips we took while we were in Alaska. The only one better was a helicopter ride to a glacier.

The crew was very informative and fun as well as good at sharing their experiences

I would take the trip again if I make it back to Alaska.

Do not miss this one.

Great for any age or group, this trip. Fascinating to see and hear first hand the life of local fishermen, their boats and their fish. Warm jackets were provided for those that came without and free hot choc/drinks on tap. We also had bald eagles flying down to scoop up fish that was thrown over the boat side, and which made for spectacular viewing and photography. An enjoyable and leisurely trip.

We are great fans of the Deadliest Catch and were anxious to see for ourselves all the excitement up close. We certainly were not disappointed. The crew was very informative and answered any and all questions. To be able to touch the crabs was an exciting experience. We were even treated to a show of eagles swooping alongside the boat. So glad that we were able to enjoy this whole adventure.
