tales of triumph surround
And everywhere – embedded in 42 miles
of white-sand beaches and
inspiring venues – await 500 years
of artistry and romance.
Families looking to get into the wild should check out Waterfall Resort
Alaska and Steamboat Bay Fishing Club. Located a short seaplane flight
from Ketchikan, Alaska, these resorts offer a great all-inclusive experience
that is especially suited to multigenerational groups.
The main activity at both resorts is fishing, and the staff handles every
detail for guests — from providing boats, guides, rods and reels to even
cleaning the catch and shipping it home. The resort also takes care of luggage
transfers on Alaska Airlines so guests don’t have to deal with their bags.
Waterfall has continued to upgrade its fleet of fishing boats, and due to
the resort’s location, there are ample opportunities for wildlife interactions,
including getting up close and personal with whales.
For clients looking for something a bit more upscale, the resort also operates Steamboat Bay Fishing Club, a lodge that accommodates just 24 guests
and is minutes by boat from the best fishing spots.
It’s recommended that visiting children are at least 12 years old, and
everyone under 18 receives a 15 percent discount. Group commission for
agents runs from 10 to 15 percent. ( www.steamboatbay.com, www.waterfall
