The Red King Crab is the most coveted commercially sold king crab. It is very large, sometimes reaching a carapace width of 11 inches (28 cm) and a leg span of 6 feet (1.8m). It is most commonly caught in the Bering Sea and Norton Sound, AK. Red King Crab get its name from the color it turns when it is cooked rather than its actual color which tends to be more burgandy.
There are many sea creatures that inhabit Alaska's waters. We were able to capture a few for you on film. Perhaps on your tour you will have the chance to see the others including the Steller Sea Lion, Sea Otters, Harbor Seals, Dall Porpoises, Whales, Walruses, Giant Pacific Octopus as well as a number of fish.
