What You Can Expect

Ketchikan Floatplane Ride and Crab Feast

George Inlet Lodge

Combine two quintessential Alaskan experiences — a floatplane ride and a Dungeness crab feast — on this memorable tour from Ketchikan. Make your way over to the Visitors Center and then step aboard a Havilland Beaver floatplane, which was only produced from 1947 to 1967. Lift off from Tongass Narrows, a Y-shaped stretch of water between Ketchikan and Gravina Island.

For about 20 minutes, admire the alpine forests of Tongass National Forest while your pilot points out key landmarks below and shares commentary about the Alaskan wilderness. Land at George Inlet Lodge on Revillagigedo Island, where you’re welcomed right away with a taste of smoked salmon before you tour the grounds with a guide. Hear about the lodge’s beginnings and Alaska’s crab industry.

Then, settle into a dining room with ocean views and indulge in a finger-licking Dungeness crab meal with all the right accompaniments, including steamed red potatoes, romaine salad and more. Top it all off with cheesecake drizzled with Alaskan blueberry sauce.

Afterward, pick up souvenirs in the gift shop and then board a minivan for the ride back to Ketchikan. Learn about the fish hatchery, a Coast Guard station and the totem poles that you’ll pass during the pleasant 30-minute narrated drive back to the Visitors Center.

The crab feast was great, the plane ride was not, just a high price cab ride!!!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2016

Our pilot was an hour late, which meant that our time in the air was limited, since we were apparently put with another group for the crab feast. The only thing I can say, is the crab was excellent, but we might as well have taken the bus.

We enjoyed the floatplane. The serving of the crab is a bit slow. Good to be given more time to eat if service is slow.
