Celebrating more than a century of tradition, Waterfall Resort spans 52 acres on Prince of Wales Island near Alaska’s famed Inside Passage. Accessible only by air and sea, our record-setting salmon cannery turned legendary sport-fishing resort draws anglers from around the world (60,000 to date), who come to our remote shores in pursuit of wild king and silver salmon, halibut, lingcod, and more than 20 other fish species.Fly in the Morning, Fish in the AfternoonHappily, we’re just a short sea-plane flight away from Ketchikan in Southeast Alaska, 90 minutes from Seattle, Washington. At Waterfall Resort, guests can fly in in the morning and they’re on the water fishing with us in the afternoon. Dedicated Service, On and Off the WaterIt’s always great to see the familiar faces of our many repeat guests, and we’re honored by those who’ve made a stay at our historic property an annual tradition passed from one generation to the next. While we’ve hosted our share of pro athletes and celebrities over the years, our core clientele includes both newbie and longtime anglers, corporate and nonprofit groups, and vacationing families, who return to Waterfall Resort Alaska year after year.We’re equally pleased to meet first-timers, and we can’t wait to share with you what makes Waterfall Resort so special. Whether it’s the exhilarating fishing, friendly tournaments, hearty dining, evenings in the saloon, or dedicated service with a smile, our goal is to deliver the finest sport-fishing adventure in Alaska—on and off the water.Let’s go fishing!
