Great time! Was our excursion off a cruise, and this was a lot of fun! Love deadliest catch, and you get to hear from the people who actually lived it. We were lucky to have great weather and great bald eagle activity!

This was by far my MOST favorite excursion that we did on our recent cruise. If you are a fan of Deadliest Catch this is a must. The Aleutian Ballad made news on the second season and you get to experience first hand crab fishing. You are seated in stadium seats where you can
