One of the featured captains on the popular Discovery Channel program, Deadliest Catch, Sig Hansen pushes his crew night and day during the peak of Alaska's crab season on the treacherous  waters of the Bering Sea. At the helm of the Northwestern, a family boat, he stays awake at the wheel for up to three days at a time - living on coffee, chocolate, and cigarettes.

Known for his fierce temperament and 20-plus years of experience on the sea, Hansen will take guests on a journey through the obstacles and challenges of this death-defying trade and life as a crab fisherman.
