Pair two of Ketchikan's signature attractions into one comprehensive excursion with the Exclusive Flightseeing & Crab Feast Tour. Experience the thrill of a floatplane tour for a bird's eye view of Ketchikan, and soar over Tongass Narrows on the way out to the George Inlet Lodge for an all-you-can-eat crab meal in a picturesque and remote Alaskan setting. A truly Alaskan experience from start to finish, you can mark two activities off your bucket list: a seaplane tour topped off with fresh, Alaskan crab!

With dock-to-dock transportation included, a short van ride from your cruise ship takes you over to the floatplane base area, where you will meet your pilot-guide and receive a short video orientation to prepare for the flight. If you've never been on a seaplane before, you'll find the water take-off exhilarating as the pilot navigates out into the open waters, brings it up to speed and lifts the pontoons out of the water. You can begin to understand this diverse landscape from the air: a plethora of islands, inlets, and seemingly endless lush forests as far as the eye can see.

The approximate 22-minute one-way flight will take you to the far reaches of Revillagigedo Island, over breathtaking peaks with deep glacial fjords below. Then prepare for landing as the pilot brings down the plane right into the crisp waters of George Inlet Fjord and navigates right up to the dock of the George Inlet Lodge, a historic outpost situated in a surreal landscape. Your host will greet you and invite you in for appetizers and Alaskan beer or white wine while the last touches are put on the main course.

Start with a fresh romaine salad adorned with mandarin oranges and a homemade oriental dressing. And soon to follow is a steaming plate of Dungeness crab paired with clarified butter and baby red potatoes - a staple Alaskan meal with fresh crab from local Ketchikan waters. Save room for a smooth cheesecake topped with Alaskan blueberries. Relax and enjoy the surrounding scenery before returning back to the cruise docks via vehicle.

Please note: Tour may operate in reverse, with the drive to the lodge and the flight back to town.
