The whole experience was excellent but the crab feast at the end was wonderful. Great food and setting. The boat was enclosed and the bus from our ship to location went straight through town and the driver was a great tour guide as well as the guide on boat. Pulled a crab pot, yes uts catch and release, and the scenery was spectacular. This tour lived up to expectations and then some.

Had a great time on our Wilderness Exploration and Crab Feast. Went out with our captain and tour guide and saw an old Salmon canning factory on our way to an area to pull crab pot. I was able to assist in the pulling of the pot and it was so much fun!
Tour guide explained the difference between males and females and how they live in this area. On our way back we saw two bald eagles that flew right up to our boat… beautiful!
The crab lunch was amazing. They taught us how to break them open and fed us all the crab we wanted.
Highly suggest this tour if you are visiting Ketchikan.

Starts with a boat tour through picturesque waterway. Not a lot of wildlife, but they feed the eagles (is that legal?) to get them to fly by. Did pick up a crab pot with crab. The tour was pleasant enough.
It ends with the crab feast and that exceeded our expectations. The crab was delicious. And plenty of it. There wasn't a great variety of food (just salad, crab, and desert) but it was very good.

The wilderness exploration portion of the excursion is a visit to pre-baited crab trap pots. We saw eagle nests, but they were pretty prevalent throughout Alaska. Other than that the “wilderness” was a bust.

I gave a 3 star review because of the crab feast … it did not disappoint. The crab was served piping hot, was plentiful and delicious. The $199 price per person, however, is steep.

The 79 steps down to the dock/restaurant and 79 steps back up to the parking lot are not handicapped accessible.

I would not recommend this excursion unless you don’t mind paying $199 for a small salad, crab, a piece of cheesecake and a beverage.

Best excursion yet! Beth (the guide) and Sonny (boat captain) were the best! They showed us wildlife and beautiful scenery. They were very informative. Shout out to Beth for taking videos of my husband and friend hand feeding deer! The seafood boil was delicious! I highly recommend this excursion!

We happened on this tour as an option available through Princess Cruises. It was worth the spend. Although catching and picking crabs is nothing new to us having lived close to the Chesapeake for years, they did a great job of showing the process and letting people be involved. The boat trip was good and gave us a view of the Alaskan waterways that we would not have experienced had we not taken the tour. The free (included) beer was good and the crabs were both good and plentifull. My one disappointment was that I tried to contact them after the trip, sending an email to both of the address on their card, no answer to either and one came back as no good. I think I left a hat there and wanted to try to recover it. Overall a good experience with a crew of energetic people.

Everyone was very friendly and informative, Ira was our Crab “servant “ (his words) he taught us how to crack the legs open. Emily and Captain Rusty were our guides on the boat part of the excursion and they were great! She told us the history of the lodge and showed us an Eagles nest with two Eaglets. I felt we had plenty of time to eat until we were stuffed and then some. If I could change one thing..... rip up the carpet in the dining rooms so that the 100 generations of crab feasts can air out of the wood floor a little. The smell was pretty powerful. People should be aware that there are 79 steps that you’ll have to take on, if you’re unable to do it they will provide a ride.

The tour which cost $179.95 was advertised as all the crabs you could eat. We were served only two pieces. When we asked for more, we were denied. The excursion was a ripoff.

The ride out to George Inlet Lodge is a nice ride. First we were out on the boat tour with a great naturist. Learned about the cannery we passed and of course, were up close and personal with the bald eagles. Sunny day, just perfect. Upon return, crabfest! The staff demonstrates the efficient way to crack crab and away you go. Great time and lots of laughs.
