What a great experience it was taking off in a float plane. Beautiful views of the countryside. When we landed at the restaurant our hosts were waiting for us. If you like crabs, then you will love the sweet taste of the Dungeness Crab that was our lunch. I highly recommend this trip for both the views and the feast.... More

We booked the early morning tour option through our Cruise Ship Ruby Princess. This worked in our favour as we were a small group of about 8. We were given a friendly welcome at the pier by the captain of our boat and our tour guide. Both our Captain and tour guide were very knowledgeable and friendly. The Captain treated... More

We had the greatest time on the Misty Fjords and Crab Feast tour from our Princess cruise. First of our pilot Bill Simms was the greatest tour guide of the fjords, showing off his favorite nooks and crannies of the national monument. The it was time to visit the lodge of the crabs! We were lucky as there was only... More

This was a shore excursion from Princess Cruises. It was the only ship's tour that we did because I had read such great reviews here. So glad that we did it. During the part on the boat not only did we get to see crab traps and crabs, but they do a great job of throwing fish out places where... More

We were so excited to eat some delicious fresh crab, and it did not disappoint. Our hostess, Jaycie was incredible and did a great job giving the history of the George Inlet Lodge and of the area of Ketchikan. Our drinks were always full, and our bellies too! The cheesecake with fresh Alaskan blueberries was also amazing! Definitely worth the... More

I am usually not a fan of crab, but this place was absolutely the best, price was included in our tour but we will go back. The service was fantastic, and the crab just kept coming out. So good that we have ordered 10 pounds to be shipped to our home, Absolutely the best place for crab.

we visited as part of a Norwegian Cruise in May and Asti and Gill were wonderful guide/boat captain. They were very informative and had great personalities, we (my 14 year old grandaughter and I) had a great time. The crab lunch which followed was exceptional and our table won the crab stack contest. I would recommend this excursion highly for... More
