Ketchikan Wilderness Tour & Crab Feast Excursion Reviews

This is a perfect option for fans of TV’s “Deadliest Catch” -- get your hands wet pulling up crab pots from waters surrounding Ketchikan’s coastline followed by a fresh Dungeness Crab feast!
The wilderness tour was great because we go to see eagles in the wild.

This is the second time I have taken this excursion. Ketchikan is the wettest town in the USA and it was raining that day but that didn't diminish the charm of this place. We started with a boat ride where we were given quite a bit of information about Dungeness Crabs, saw some sea lions and watched an eagle swoop down from it's nest to retrieve a herring that the boat guide threw out for it. It was thrilling. The all you can eat crab meal is delicious but I wish they would allow at least another 15 minutes to really enjoy it. I would give it 5 stars if they did that. Read Less

Was ok. Just a boat ride and a lot of crab to eat. I was thinking it would be like a crab boil, with potatoes, corn, etc... nope - just crab.

The boat was very small with a small cabin crammed tight with about 40 people sitting shoulder to shoulder on benches. The boat never got off plane so the nose was always in the air and you could not see anything. It was a brief trip out to a crab trap that they brought up so everyone could view the crabs, then back to shore. The small lodge was nice but so packed with people from several boats that it was hard to move around. The best part was all the nice crew and people at the lodge that served an outstanding lunch of all the steamed crab you could eat....and I mean ALL YOU COULD EAT, no scrimping. If you love steamed crab it was great, but at $199 per person, I would not do it again. Perhaps it was just not what I thought it would be. Read Less
