World Famous George Inlet Lodge Crab Feast

38 reviews

Excursion Overview

Enjoy a delicious Dungeness crab feast at the George Inlet Lodge

Come hungry for what many people consider to be some of the best crab they've ever eaten and a favorite Ketchikan excursion.

The remote location just south of town will only add to your dining pleasure at the rustic, yet elegant, George Inlet Lodge. This historic building was built in the 1940s and once served as an old cannery bunkhouse. When the cannery closed in 1970, two local businessmen undertook the huge job of moving the lodge 90 miles up the George Inlet waterway to its present location at the site of an old gold mine. The lodge's warmth and charm create a relaxing experience that will be the highlight of your Alaskan journey.

Your meal features a salad in homemade Asian dressing to start, steaming hot Dungeness Crab, and a slice of rich, smooth cheesecake, smothered in Alaskan blueberries for dessert. You'll also receive one alcoholic drink and unlimited hot/cold beverages are included.

Last but not least, check out the gift shop for a special souvenir for your trip.

Our Driver, Ana was very friendly and helpful. Because we had an early start, she stopped along the way to see if we could find the local Orca, then at a beautiful waterfall. The Crab Feast was delicious and fun as well as we were challenged to build a Crab leg tower after being shown how to get all the meat out of the legs. The setting with large windows out to the water was great as well. We recommend this Feast as a special treat.

We did this last year in combination with the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show. Being the only thing my husband asked to do again, we scheduled the feast alone this time. This NEVER disappoints! Easy pick-up, great personalities, and OMG the crab!! 6 of 5 stars.
