You’ll hear all about life at sea and the dangers deep sea trawlermen faced in the Icelandic fishing grounds.

Before each tour starts you can watch a short 10 minute action film - Life at Sea - in the Arctic Corsair visitor centre (next to the Hull and East Riding Museum). You can also find out more about the Arctic Corsair at the museum, which is free to enter and you do not need to book.
