George Inlet lodge is about a half-hour drive from the port. Pretty scenery on the coast road.
We booked in advance through catchcrabs.com and they handled the pickup at the port - bring your phone because the pier is a big area and lots of walking traffic. Give them a call when you're on the dock. We booked individually rather than pay 3x, what the cruise charges.
From the dock we saw a couple of Killer Whales transiting and a baby breaching. You can take a boat ride or float plane to/from the restaurant - we elected to ride in the van.
