I’m revamping a few of my older travel posts and articles for those that are planning a vacation or a cruise. This article appeared in Examiner 2-15-14.
Sailing to Alaska is an adventure in and of itself, however, when the Disney Wonder docks inKetchikan, you definitely don’t want to miss out on the Port Adventure to George Inlet Lodge for theWilderness Exploration and Crab Feast.
This port adventure lasts approximately four and a half hours. You will be met by a bus when you leave the ship, for the 30 minute drive along the coast to George Inlet Lodge. Along the way, your driver will treat you to a narrative of the history of the area, and show you a number of interesting things. You may even see a bear or two along the way.
Once guests arrive at the lodge, they are taken to the boat that will take them to the crab pots. The boat provides binoculars for wildlife viewing along the way. Your host will keep a good narrative going along the route, pointing out areas of interest such as an eagles nest high up in a tree, a bear, moose, or eagle and entertain you with the stories of fish piracy at the George Inlet Cannery, which you will pass by on your way to the crab estuary.
