Bering Sea Crab Fishermen's Tour

This is a tour that replicates the TV Show The Deadliest Catch. This boat was on season 2. They pulled up a pot of snow crab that had other crab and an octopus in it. Next was a pot of prawns, and last was the king crab pot.

They let us handle the catch and had a running commentary of fishing procedures and the importance of safety. While on the way to the fishing grounds, we saw whales, porpoise and bald eagles. It was a fantastic tour.
