Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your excursion begins as you board your motorcoach for a short drive to the flight terminal, where you'll board an authentic Alaska bush plane.

As your flight takes off from the bustling downtown Ketchikan harbor, panoramic views of Revillagigedo Island and the spectacular mountains of the Tongass National Forest are revealed. The narrated flight highlights the historic importance of your aircraft and the landmarks below. After 20 minutes of breathtaking scenery, you'll experience the thrill of a water landing at the remote George Inlet Lodge, a rustic yet elegant oasis that once served as an early 1900s cannery bunkhouse.

Hope you're hungry as you'll be seated in a private dining room to snack on smoked salmon while you learn of the colorful history of the lodge and its epic journey across 90 miles of ocean to its current location. You'll sip white wine or Alaskan Amber beer as your host entertains you with stories of Alaska, Ketchikan and the wilderness lifestyle. In the Oceanside Dining Room, enjoy an all-you-can eat Dungeness crab feast, complete with fresh Oriental salad and cheesecake smothered in Alaska blueberries.

You'll cap your day off with souvenir shopping and a scenic coastal drive back to the pier, passing totem poles, a fish hatchery and a U.S. Coast Guard Station.
