This was a thoroughly nautical adventure. I held a crab. It was scary, but in a good way. The fishermen told stories about almost dying on the boat. Seems like a dangerous line of work. But the boat tour was super safe. They stopped by...More

No coupons - but purchasing through the tour rather than the ship is less expensive in most cases.

They do not kill any fish on this trip. They do pull the pots but everything is thrown back in the water. They do have fish cut up to feed the eagles. But it’s cut up already and you don’t see it.
