A flight and crab feast combo is a truly Alaskan experience that starts with a 30 minute flight over the Tongass National Forest or a 90 minute flight to the Misty Fjords National Monument. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Ketchikan waterfront and surrounding area or choose to continue on to the Misty Fjords National Monument before landing at the historic George Inlet Lodge. The tour will end with an All-You-Can-Eat Dungeness crab feast that comes complete with dessert! After your meal, enjoy a relaxing drive back to Ketchikan.
Taking off from the Carlin Air dock will immediately treat you to views of the harbor and City of Ketchikan. Explore Deer Mountain, the mountains above Ketchikan and the beautifully forested landscape, lakes or maybe even a waterfall. The keen observer may be lucky enough to spot a mountain goat clinging to the top of a mountain. Your pilot / guide will compliment this experience by answering questions and pointing out areas of interest in the area we all call home. End your 30 minute flight with a landing at the historic George Inlet Lodge for an All-You-Can-Eat Dungeness crab feast before taking a fully narrated coach ride back to Ketchikan.
The traditional Misty Fjords Flightseeing tour is our most popular, offering a myriad of views including sheer rock face “walls”, crystal clear alpine lakes and cascading waterfalls. Only by air can you truly appreciate this 2.2 million acre Wilderness monument carved by glaciers thousands of years ago. About halfway through the tour, your aircraft will touch down in the monument for a short stopover. Your pilot / guide will compliment this experience by answering questions and pointing out areas of interest in the place we call home. End your 90 minute flight with a landing at the historic George Inlet Lodge for an All-You-Can-Eat Dungeness crab feast before taking a fully narrated coach ride back to Ketchikan.
We offer each passenger at Carlin Air a voice activated headset as a bonus to the flight. The equipment allows you to talk with other traveling companions, your pilot / guide or just listen while the pilot / guide narrates or plays music in the background - no boring pre-recorded tapes in a monotone voice! While at George Inlet Lodge, you will be treated to an Alaskan delicacy: All-You-Can-Eat sweet and tender Dungeness crab meat served with baby red potatoes and fresh oriental salad. Be sure to save room for dessert - rich, smooth cheesecake, smothered in Alaskan blueberries! Complimentary transportation is provided at the start as well as the end of your excursion.
