It could have been great. However, they didn't mention that our crab feast would be served at 9 am. That is kind of an important detail to omit.

We booked directly with the George Inlet Lodge to partake in their crab feast. They arranged for our pickup, with the meeting place just a short walk from where Solstice was docked. We walked around the Creek Street before the arranged pick up time. It was all very convenient and stress-free. The drive to the lodge was about 20 min each way. The fresh crabs were OUTSTANDING, but the time to eat them was very limited. Don’t waste your precious time by trying to pile your shells in a communal dish to be measured. The winning table with the highest pile of shells gets to dance in front of everybody – that’s it. Just leave the shells in front of you and concentrate on eating your crabs. Before you know it, the last round of crabs will be served. This scrumptious lunch also came with a drink, a salad, and a slice of cheesecake with blueberry sauce -- really, REALLY, yummy!!! The whole experience was fun, delicious, and very filling! Don’t forget to leave a tip before you go. Read Less

We really liked this excursion although there was so little time in Ketchikan. That was the downside. It seemed rushed. But the feast was truly a feast and the boat ride was a fun addition.

We did the Wilderness Exploration Cruise and Crab Feast (KTN-650) excursion in Ketchikan. We enjoyed this tour, but it wasn't what we were expecting. We were thinking "Deadliest Catch" style crabbing, but learned more about local crabbing for the smaller dungeness crab. The crab feast part was amazing and delicious!!! Our boat captain was amazing with the bald eagles and our guide was very informative. We saw a seal and learned a great deal about Ketchikan and living in the area. It was a pretty inlet cruise, just not what we expected for the money. We highly recommend the flightseeing in Ketchikan with Taquan Air (from a previous cruise we took) or the Adventure Karts for amazing views of Ketchikan. We noticed that Taquan Air supports the flightseeing/crab feast combo (more expensive) that would land on the water often and taxi in to George Inlet Lodge for the crab feast. Read Less

The wilderness tour was great with lots of information about the wildlife along the way. We saw baldeagles and a mountain goat before the crab traps were brought up and we could hold one, very carefully, as they were alive! The crab feast was superb but we would have enjoyed a little more time there as we had to rush our dessert! Read Less

Wonderful flight on a seaplane with fantastic views! We got off the seaplane at a very scenic lodge and had unlimited dungeness crab. OMG! Fantastic spread. We used some shipboard credit to switch out an included excursion (which didn't include the seaplane ride) for this one and I'm so glad we did. Very nice people, a little crowded with one big long shared table, but we also had unlimited beverages and a very nice cheesecake dessert. Ketchikan was warm and sunny. Beautiful day. There was not time afterwards to do any shopping unfortunately. Luckily we shopped a lot in the earlier ports as there was not a lot of time in port. Read Less
