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 Alaska Salmon and Halibut fishing: location, location, location!

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.
