One of the tours that many people go on, while in Ketchikan is the crab boat tour. It’s about a 3.5 to 4 hour tour. I have been on it 4 or 5 times, usually taking someone who is visiting us. The ship is the Aleutian Ballad. The crew takes you out, shows you how crab pots work, they have some preset ones that they pull you for you. They show you different types of crab also from small ones to kings. The tour is very informative and the crew is very friendly.
At one point they attract some bald eagles. I have seen over 30 flying around the ship and feeding from the water, but toward the end of the season I have seen less than 10. They give you the opportunity to hold various sea creatures, if you want. This is a rain or shine tour. Best place is on top deck to get some good eagle pictures, on the bottom deck if you want to handle stuff. I believe that there are age restrictions for small kids.
Just finished my second E-Book. This one has almost 60 pages and about 70 pictures of bald eagles as seen in Ketchikan Alaska, USA. It is listed on Amazon at the price of $5.99,for the EBook version. It is in their format for Kindles. Where we live , eagles can be seen every day, rain or snow, summer or winter. It never gets old watching these majestic birds. This book has some of my pictures that I have captured over the last few years. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for your time.
Living in Ketchikan Alaska I see eagles every day. Rain, wind, sunny skies it doesn’t matter, eagles are out. It never gets tired or old. I currently am writing an e-book just on eagles. I will let you know when it’s completed. Ketchikan is a very tourist orientated town from spring to fall. One of the tours that I have gone on many times is called “The Lighthouse, Totems and Eagles” tour. I will publish an article just on them soon. I highly recommend it. So this clip is part of a DVD that I was making them. On the tour they show you about 10 eagles nests, as well as some totem poles and a light house.
