Indulge your senses with a taste of Alaska during this picturesque George Inlet cruise, and a crab feast at the George Inlet Lodge.

Depart Ketchikan Harbor for the narrated drive along the scenic coastline. Along the way, you will pass by canneries, an old sawmill, totem poles and waterfalls. Upon arrival at George Inlet Lodge, you will be outfitted with a rain poncho, then board a 36-foot, fully-enclosed pontoon boat for a 90-minute cruise along Alaska's Inside Passage and the beautiful George Inlet. En route, you will see the historic George Inlet Cannery, a short-seam silver mine, and the Mahoney Glacial Cirque's snow-capped mountains and 2,000-foot waterfalls.

Next, you will cross the fjord to a remote estuary to witness the awe-inspiring grandeur of the Tongass National Forest, the world's largest temperate rain forest. Dungeness crabs abound in this estuary, and you may assist in pulling up crab pots to examine these tasty creatures from up close.

After measurements and statistics are taken, you will return to the warm and inviting George Inlet Lodge, where a dungeness crab meal awaits your arrival. During your visit, you will have an opportunity to relax amidst the rustic charm and Alaskan hospitality for which George Inlet Lodge is known. After a quick lesson in the art of crab cracking, you will be served this Alaskan favorite.

Following your visit, you will reboard your bus for the return drive to the pier.

Please note: This tour involves walking on uneven surfaces, negotiating steep inclines and stairs. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or guests who utilize a wheelchair. Depending on the tide, the gangway to the boat can be steep (15-25 degrees). There are 79 covered stairs from the bus drop off to the lodge deck; however, there is a vehicle available to drive guests down and back up to eliminate the stair factor. The restaurant at the lodge will not be exclusive to Oceania guests. Although the catamarans are enclosed, guests are advised to dress warmly in layers as the weather can still get cold.
