King crab, Alaska

If you’re an avid fan of the hit TV show, Deadliest Catch on the Discovery Channel, as we are, this experience can be for you. It’s called the Bering Sea Crab Fishermen’s Tour. It’s a four-hour tour out of Ketchikan, Alaska, scheduled during the relatively mild weather of May through September.

Even in those quiet months, the Bering Sea trip is not for sissies. The crabbing boat, Aleutian Ballard, takes up to 149 hardy passengers on each sailing to get a taste of what the real sailors go through in their tough jobs.

If you’re interested in this great experience, and you plan to be on an Inside Passage cruise or will just be in Ketchican for the day, check out this tour.
