Having hosted more than 60,000 guests, Waterfall Resort is the most popular fishing lodge in Alaska. Located by Southeast Alaska's famous Inside Passage near Ketchikan, just 90 minutes from Seattle, Waterfall Resort makes the spectacular wilderness of Alaska easy to access. Built in 1912, the historic record-breaking Alaskan salmon cannery on 52 acres of breathtaking coastal wilderness now serves as the location for the all inclusive sport fishing lodge, Waterfall Resort. The fish keep coming back every year, and so do our guests. Waterfall Resort delivers an all inclusive Alaska vacation, where our expert service takes care of all the details. Experienced guides accompany you on 25' heated cabin cruisers custom built for comfort, supporting anglers of all skill levels. We provide all the fishing equipment and gear, and we even process your catch for you back on shore so you can take your frozen fish home. Guests typically return with an average of 70 lbs of fillets! Waterfall Resort is situated in SE Alaska on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island, benefiting from ocean upwelling and nutrient rich waters that attract King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Halibut, Ling Cod and many more. This destination is a short scenic float plane ride over Alaska's Inside Passage from Ketchikan, which is only 90 minutes from Seattle. We host our own Alaska Airlines agent on site to make return flights and baggage check a snap. Easy travel means the resort is also ideal for hosting Corporate groups and events. Come join the legendary sport fishing fun at Waterfall Resort! Catch the Adventure!
