Ketchikan's Flightseeing & Crab Feast
Combine the joys of flightseeing and feasting on this Ketchikan adventure. During this Ketchikan shore excursion, you'll partake in an exciting ride above the island and dig into delicious crab. You've never experienced Alaska like this before.
The first portion of your tour is a 25-minute aerial excursion to George Inlet Lodge. As you soar above the land, youll see mountains, wildlife and other Ketchikan attractions from a whole new perspective. There's no prerecorded narration on this flight. You and your pilot Steve Kamm will have headsets allowing you to communicate directly to each other. Eventually, you'll reach the lodge.
Make sure you come hungry to the lodge. You'll be treated to Alaskan amber beer, smoked salmon and other great bites. The main attraction, however, is the Dungeness Crab that's served with baby red potatoes; the tender meat is to die for. At the end of the meal, you will get some blueberry-smothered cheesecake to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The flight on the float plane was so smooth barely knew we were up in the air & the landing was perfect. The views were breathtaking. Our pilot was very skilled & knowledgeable of the area sharing his real life experiences. He tried hard to find us some wildlife but no one was out to play that day. It went so fast I wish the flight was longer or you got to ride back on the plane from the Crab Feast which was a lot of fun. The crab was absolutely mouth watering delicious & the staff were cute.
You will be missing out on the time of your live and the best crabs you will ever eat if you don't do this excursion. By far the best of the excursions we did in Alaska. The day started out rainy and overcast so our tour went directly to George Inlet by van to eat crabs. By the time we got there the rain had stopped so I was happy about that. We were seated in a private dining room with about 14 other people. Our server, Morgan, was a delight. She had this big bowl filled with steaming hot crabs that she kept serving us until you exploded. There was also a nice salad and roasted potatoes on the plate. The food was delicious. After we stuffed our faces for about an hour we were able to take our seaplane tour. This was amazing. The sun was shining and was absolutely beautiful. The plane took us directly to the dock where the ships were. I would definitely recommend this tour.
My friend and I, two ladies in our 80s, flew in a small, one engine plane with Mike our pilot. I told Mike that I had hoped to see a bear while in Alaska, and he located 3 bears in separate areas. Seeing the water and mountains (and bears!) from above was wonderful. The flight was exciting and exhilarating, and I could have stayed up there all day. Thanks, Mike, for a grand experience! The Dungeness crab luncheon was delicious. This excursion was well organized and run, and I'm so pleased to have chosen it.
