Ketchikan Wilderness Tour & Crab Feast Excursion Reviews
We grew up with a crabbing boat and we thought we were going whale-watching, which was ALL my fault, so it was a little bummed, but we saw bald eagles and seals and of course, dungeness crabs. The crab feast was delicous... but this was EIGHT AM. We had to have a beer and try to imagine it was dinnertime. Crab was as good as any I've had anywhere, and like I said, I grew up pulled up crabpots and eating it on the beach with a crab pot, so I've had a lot of excellent crab. They did a great job.
we took a float plane to the crabfest,loved it,private all you can eat crab fest
A scenic boat tour to a local bay, where a crab pot was lifted for a photo op, followed by a crab lunch at a nearby lodge. Pleasant enough, but not worth half what we paid.
We got up early and were off of the boat by 7:30am. We walked around without a lot of people. It was very foggy and the ship's fog horn blew most of the night. It did clear up nicely for the rest of the day, full sun. We walked up to Creek Street, saw lots of swimming and dead salmon. I purchased a heavy coat at Tongass Trading Company for $20. Worked great in Tracy Arm and Juneau where is rained and was very cold. We booked the Wilderness Exploration Cruise & Crab Feast. We boarded a bus and went south for about 15 minutes to the George Inlet Lodge. There we got on a boat and toured the inlet and stopped to pull up two crab pots. They show to how to hold and sex crabs. We saw an eagle and eagle nest. After about 1 hour of boat tour we went back to the Lodge and had an all you can eat crab lunch. They teach you how to eat the crab legs etc. This was good for the non-crab eaters, but we were professionals. We felt like we eat a stick of butter by the end. Good thing we were walking and going to the gym. The bus took us back to the ship.
Beautiful scenery and fresh crab - what else could anyone want?
GREAT. Would do again. Lee really loved the tour and crab feast.
The float plane ride was exillarating and the views were awesome.
The crab dinner at George Inlet Lodge was exceptional....all you could eat Dungeness crab along with apetizers and salad and you never were allowed to see the bottom of your beer or wine glass. Their blueberry cheesecake is one of the best I have ever tasted (and that was after 2 pieces).
Boat tour of the George Inlet waterway and the Dungeness crab estuary. Back to the lodge for all you can eat Dungeness crabs. Awesome tour!
Nice ride looking at the scenery. They pulled up a couple crab pots to let us all see what it was like. Back at the lodge the crab feast was fantastic. Plenty of great tasting crab followed by cheesecake.
Excellent - Spendy but worth it!
