In 1912, Alaskan pioneers founded a salmon cannery near a seaside waterfall on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island, a location known in native legends as one of the most productive fisheries ever. That cannery went on to break records for the sheer volume of canned fish it exported all over the world.
One hundred years later, Waterfall Resort continues to offer guests the ultimate all inclusive high-end sport fishing lodge in Alaska’s Inside Passage.
Three words define what makes Waterfall Resort the top choice for Alaskan Salmon and Alaskan Halibut fishing: location, location, location!
The annual return of Halibut and Salmon to our prime location on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska’s Inside Passage near Ketchikan, AK gives Waterfall Resort its legendary reputation for premier Alaskan sportfishing.
Our location on Prince of Wales Island, just a short Alaska Airlines flight from Ketchikan, offers Alaska fishing opportunities both rich and plentiful, with teaming populations of Alaska King Salmon, Halibut, Silver (Coho) Salmon, Ling Cod, Snapper, Rockfish and more. In fact, the historic Waterfall Cannery, the origins of Waterfall Resort, was once one of the most productive Salmon fishing canneries in all of Alaska.
Waterfall Resort attracts Alaska anglers of all skill levels, from novice to avid fishermen, celebrities, and professional athletes. Waterfall is also the ideal all-inclusive Alaska resort for hosting incentive trips and corporate events.
From all around the world, our guests return to Waterfall Resort year after year to enjoy the personalized service and unique guest experience. We take pride in offering a one-to-one guest to staff ratio. You will marvel at the staggering number of trophy-size Salmon, Halibut and Ling-Cod you will catch and the Alaska fishing stories and memories they create.

In the early 1900's, Waterfall was the largest salmon packing plant on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island. Like most canneries in Alaska, this remote operation on the Ulloa Channel was a complete, self- sufficient, temporary community. When the season was over, all but a few workers departed until the next summer's migration.

"For the last 28 years, Waterfall Resort has been our incentive/business destination of choice."
-Rich de Frank, Ford Motor Co.
"Waterfall Resort is one of those special places that words could never adequately describe."
-Bob Morris, American Express
