Excursion Overview

Catch and eat delicious crab for a truly Alaskan adventure

This exciting tour will bring you right to the heart of Southeast Alaska and the lush Tongass National Forest. Feel what it is like to be a local Alaskan! You can volunteer to pull up the crab pots from the beautiful waters surrounding Revillagigedo Island, which overflow with crab, salmon, seals, and whales. Breathe in the fresh air and incredible scenery as your crew shares the history and exciting stories of the ocean.

Of course, you get to enjoy your hard work with a delicious side of fresh salad. Cheesecake with blueberry topping will round out this locally-inspired meal. This is truly an exciting gathering that has been called a "Rowdy good time!" You will be led through a panorama of local tall tales then demonstrate the easiest way to crack your crabs!

The remote rustic, yet elegant old cannery lodge where you will have your meal just adds to your dining experience. The lodge's cozy charm truly creates an enjoyable, relaxing experience that will be the highlight of your Alaskan journey.

Please note: This tour may run in reverse.

We loved this excursion. We learned a lot of history during the boat tour and saw a few eagles. It was fun learning about the crab pot and getting to see the process of catching crabs. The best part of the excursion was eating the crab. It was so good! We each had three plates full and were stuffed. Having the all-you-can-eat crab feast was worth the cost alone. The cheesecake was delicious as well. Everyone working on the boat and at the lodge was amazing and so friendly. I highly recommend this excursion!
