Experience the wild waters of Alaska, and all the fascinating creatures who call the Inside Passage home on one of the most Alaskan tours Ketchikan has to offer! The Wilderness Exploration and Crab Feast brings you from Ketchikan to the heart of Southeast Alaska, the Tongass National Forest. Here you will have the chance to explore the wildlife and pioneering ways of Alaska. Experience a “day in the life” of a local Alaskan fisherman, checking out crab pots, trolling the open waters, and learning from your naturalist guides along the way. And don’t forget the tasty treats waiting for you at the lodge. Featuring fresh caught Alaskan Dungeness Crab, and an assortment of sides, this feast is one of the most delicious tours Ketchikan offers!

Please Note: This tour may operate with either the boat exploration or crab feast first

Your Wilderness Exploration and Crab Feast starts with a beautiful drive along the coast of Revillagigedo Island. These winding, seaside roads eventually lead you to the scenic and historic George Inlet Lodge. Once you arrive at the lodge, you will either begin with the scenic and informational boat ride, or you’ll head on in to enjoy an all-you-can-eat crab feast! Your 90-minute boat tour will take you from through the waters surrounding Ketchikan. Along the way, you will pull up crab pots, explore the coastline, and cruise in a heated catamaran-style vessel for one of the more in-depth tours Ketchikan has to offer. You can even assist in the crabbing portion of the tour, as you experience a “day in the life” of a local Alaskan!

When it’s time for your crab feast at the George Inlet Lodge, you will be greeted by the friendly staff. Be sure to prepare yourselves for a “Rowdy good time.” With endless Dungeness crab legs, a fresh salad, and Blueberry cheesecake, you are sure to leave with a full belly and a smile on your face. Be sure to remember your camera & and your appetite for your unforgettable Wilderness Exploration and Crab Feast!

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?
No special equipment is necessary for you to bring. Dress warmly and in layers as the temperature can fluctuate throughout the day. We recommended bringing a rain jacket, hat, and gloves for your comfort.
What if it rains? Do the trips get canceled?
Ketchikan is in the heart of a temperate rainforest, and we would never do anything if we stopped for the rain. Please do not let the possibility of rain deter you from booking. Southeast Alaska is at its most beautiful on misty rainy days.
What if I have food allergies or dietary restrictions?
Alternative menu items are available for guests allergic to seafood or with dietary restrictions and can be requested directly in the dining room. These menu items include cajun, grilled, or lemon peppered chicken for non-seafood eaters. Penne pasta or cheese ravioli with pesto sauce is available for vegetarians.
What if our cruise ship's schedule is canceled or delayed?
We will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, then you will receive a refund, less any non-refundable fees.
