Of course, it’s not uncommon for crew members to come and go at the fishing game. Most veteran fishermen might be quick to tell you that this is what happens with the regularity of the spray. And indeed, Deadliest Catch has had it on a regular enough basis as the show has matured. The same does not apply to ship captains. And aside from a ship being decommissioned or worse, capsizing, it’s just as rare for these to go away.
Don’t worry—neither the Southern Breeze nor her captain currently call the bottom of the Bering Sea home. Though the Southern Wind “Deadliest Catch” doesn’t seem to be calling home anymore either, according to a recent Celebrity Family YouTube post, the ship is still very operational. Apparently it currently operates exclusively in Pacific Northwest waters and claims Seattle, Washington as its primary port of call. Despite sharing the same name, it appears that the Southern Wind also has a slightly new look, as Reality Tidbits reports that the ship recently received some much-needed repairs and a fresh coat of camouflage paint.
As for Steve “Harley” Davidson, it seems none of the outlets have been able to confirm whether or not he’s still in charge from the captain’s chair on the Southern Wind. In fact, Harley has kept a low profile since his last Deadliest Catch appearance and hasn’t even updated his Instagram since February 2021. However, on this site he still lists himself as captain of the F/V Southern Wind, so who’s to say?
