Ketchikan Flightseeing & Crab Feast

Experience why Alaska is still called, "The Last Frontier". This amazing tour offers you a once in a lifetime experience that is sure to be the highlight of your Alaskan vacation.
You'll feel the power of the Dehavilland aircraft as you lift off the ocean with your pilot guide in the cockpit. State of the art headphones allow you to enjoy this fully narrated tour by air as you gently glide over Tongass Narrows and over the historic Ketchikan Downtown area. Once the plane gently touches down on the waters of George Inlet Fjord, it will glide to a stop at the dock of the lodge, where your host will be awaiting. Your meal will feature a fresh romaine salad, topped with mandarin oranges and tossed in homemade oriental dressing. Steaming hot Dungeness Crab follows as the main course. Savor this Alaskan delicacy that is prized for its sweet and tender meat but save room for dessert. Rich, smooth cheesecake smothered in blueberries will be a perfect ending to this world class meal!

We did a 7 day cruise down the coast of Alaska which was breathtaking throughout, but this was one of the highlights. Cruising over the mountains, you look down at beautiful lakes and fjords, and see glaciers in the distance. The fact that you take off and land on water in a

Nice flight, but difficulty hearing the pilot's narration as the headphones did not work well, but the views are always breathtaking....we were fortunate for good weather.

We took the floatplane to see the black bears catching salmon in the Tongass National Forest early September 2019. We had already done a similar trip to the Misty Fjords eight years previously. I just want to say how great Ed, the pilot and Mark, the guide were when we took the
