Dining

Every meal is handcrafted by our executive chefs to ensure innovative, nutritious, and delectable dining experiences that highlight flavors of the region.

In Coastal Washington, you’ll likely sample Hama Hama oysters, shucked by the 5th generation family farmers who cultivated them. And in Alaska, savor buttery-rich Dungeness crab caught live by local fisherman and one of our sources for in-season crab.

Unless there’s a specially arranged barbecue or lunch on shore, most dinners are served over several courses—with particular attention to your personal preferences. The dining experience is casual, and seating is open so you are free to join new friends and choose a different table at every meal.
