Families looking to get into the wild should check out Waterfall Resort 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.
