Loved this tour, it gave us an informative insight into the life of a crab boat.An added bonus was the feeding of the bald eagles, that was amazing.The staff are very friendly and I highly recommend this tour if you love watching the show.

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.
