World Famous George Inlet Lodge Crab Feast


Enjoy a delicious Dungeness crab feast at the George Inlet Lodge. Many people consider this 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.

Amazing!! Fresh crab, truly all you can eat - they give you as many as you want so it really is a good price for what you get.

Sep 2023 - Tina S.

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.

Aug 2023 - Robley D.

This was our second trip to Ketchikan where we enjoyed the Dungeness Crab Feast. We brought friends this time and all had a wonderful time and great meal. Thanks for your hospitality!

We loved the crab feast excursion! George Inlet Lodge is beautiful, took many photos. The crab was delish and plentiful, and the cheesecake was divine!

Jun 2023 - Harry N G.

Wow!! what a wonderful crab feast. All you can eat of delectable Dungeness crab. Your plate, and hot butter dish, being constantly refilled. All the staff are great plus local bus tour with commentary, and how to shell your crab demonstration. Couldn't be better.

Jun 2023 - JANET M.

OMG - We. ate. so. much. Just do it. Working with Alaska Shore Excursions is always top-notch.

Jun 2023 - Betty N.

The crab was great. The tour is for 2 hours but actually, it's only 1 hr of eating. The experience went by so quickly. We enjoyed it! Will do it again.

May 2023 - Marisol I.

If you like crabs this is a must. I ate soo much!! The cheesecake was also delicious! Since we arrive early, our guide took us to see a site that had a bear sighting and we got to see a bear. So if you go make sure to get there early because they do amazing jobs pointing out the amazing scenery.

May 2023 - Hilary H.

Excellent service and all the crab you can eat. Waiters were awesome in explaining how to break the crab plus constantly filling your plate. I would definitely recommend this tour company and hope to use them again on another trip to Alaska in the future.

Sep 2022 - Richard G.

Excellent tour and a great deal! Much better than the cruise line offered...friendly staff at the George Inlet lodge. I will use your service again for sure! I even had three friends on the ship join me on the tour at the last minute and they will use your service again too. Bravo!

Sep 2022 - Kieran F.

Crab was amazing and there was plenty to eat. Our host Dave was fantastic and made the feast all that more special.

Aug 2022 - Robert J H.

This was one of the highlights of our Alaskan Cruise. The shuttle service to the lodge was excellent and we were able to see some seals in an inlet on the short drive. The lunch meal was absolutely outstanding starting with a small salad and then all of the hot, delicious, sweet Dungeness Crab we could eat with hot drawn butter and ice cold draft ale. The homemade cheesecake desert was the perfect finishing touch to this fantastic meal. I have to add that our most knowledgeable server was entertaining in addition to constantly keeping our plates and glasses full.

Aug 2022 - John P.

The crab was fantastic, perfectly cooked and came apart without any meat wasted. The feast for us consisted of about 4 clusters each, that we devoured with no wasted time.

Aug 2022 - Ken K.

The crab was the star of this excursion, with plenty being dished up. This was our third visit to George Inlet and the quality is always top notch.

Aug 2022 - Stephanie B.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at George Inlet and the amazing crab feast lunch. It is all you can eat crab with a starter salad and dessert. We dined in a great room overlooking the water where we were able to see humpback whales out the window. I highly recommend this excursion for any seafood fans!!

Jul 2022 - Louann B.

We are from Louisiana so we know good seafood and this was some of the best! The crabs were delicious and the service was superb! Well worth the price!

Jul 2022 - Joann N.

We had an amazing time. The food was delicious. We booked with Alaska Shore Excursions in lieu of booking through the cruise ship and are so glad we did. The tour guide met us in walking distance of the port and the 6 of us had the entire van and dining room at the lodge entirely to ourselves. It was about a 25 minute ride there and 25 minutes back. We had about 1.5 hours to eat all the crabs our hearts desired. Unfortunately, we were full after about 6 clusters. The excursions booked through the cruise lines showed up in tour buses and had to share a tables in a room with 100 + guests. I will definitely book through you again.

Jul 2022 - Beth B.

Fantastic from pickup at the port, to fresh delicious crab, to the return back.

Jun 2022 - Gina R.

This was by far the best seafood I had on our trip. The staff was awesome and the owner is so nice! I would definitely go back.

Oct 2021 - Patricia D.

We really enjoyed this excursion. The crab was very good and plentiful. The ride to St George was very nice. Our driver stopped at a waterfall for pictures!

Sep 2019 - Roberta M.

They really went the extra mile to accommodate my family and I. We had a party of 7 but they only had room for 3. They were able to make extra room for my family and we had a wonderful time. Crab was wonderful, the atmosphere was great and the service was the best. Well worth the money. Thank you!

Sep 2019 - Theresa H B.

Although this excursion was not booked through our cruise line Princess, we were very pleased with the whole experience and the excursion personnel.

Best crab I ever ate. Great excursion.

Jul 2019 - Cecile N.

This was a delicious meal of fresh crab. Nice van and good drivers who were very personable. Our waiter was Jessica and she was great.

Jul 2019 - Angelina A. D.

Only one word to describe this excursion: PERFECT

Jul 2019 - Dorrene S.

Great time! Staff was friendly and entertaining. I have a bad knee and they picked me up at the pier of our cruise ship. A van was available to get a lift to avoid the stairs to the restaurant. But the crab was the best! No butter needed even though it was provided. And I was full before they finished handing out more crab. Great time!

Jul 2019 - Virginia B.

Best excursion ever if you love crab! Delicious and lots of fun.

Jul 2019 - Jeannie W.

Delicious! friendly staff!

Jul 2019 - Kristie M.

Absolutely the best! Would love to return often if possible. Plenty of crab served. If you do not get your fill, you are not eating fast enough.

Jul 2019 - Ken K.

This was our second Crab Feast and it was just as delicious second time around. Again there were great personnel on the transportation over and at the restaurant. If you like crab this is a must do. Seeing all the Eagles along the way was a bonus.

Jun 2019 - JOSEPHINE P.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone! It truly was fantastic from start to finish. I love crab and I was able to eat as much as I wanted!! Great place, too, in a fabulous location. Staff super friendly. Could not have had a better experience. Thank you for a great memory!
