Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Ketchikan and transfer to your hotel. The balance of the day is yours. Choose to stroll the boarded walkways along famous Creek Street, or see the totems at nearby Saxman Village.

Day 2: Transfer to the Waterfall Resort on Prince of Wales Island by floatplane. Head out for an exhilarating afternoon of fishing with lunch on board. Return to the resort, at which time the catch is unloaded with photographs on the dock before delivery to the processing crew. Enjoy a buffet dinner and perhaps a walk to the the waterfall, relaxing in the Lagoon Saloon, or maybe a game of pool. Settle into your accommodations at the Boardwalk cabins and oceanfront Lodge rooms that once housed the crew working the salmon runs, now renovated with modern day comforts including WiFi. (Lunch, Dinner)

Day 3: Breakfast starts at 5 a.m. daily and includes homemade baked goods, bacon and sausages, and made-to-order omelets.  Meet your guide at 6:30 a.m. to launch your full day of fishing. Off the island’s craggy western shore, a nutrient-rich spring runoff and a confluence of ocean currents create an ideal habitat for millions of baitfish, which draw seasonal runs of king and silver salmon, as well as halibut, lingcod, and more than 20 other fish species. The 28-foot aluminum cabin cruisers are equipped with shock absorbent seats, heated cabins, private heads, and an arsenal of field-tested equipment. Return to the dock this afternoon to hang your catch at the weigh station. Before dinner, relax on deck and enjoy the evening sun. (B, L, D)

Day 4: After breakfast, it’s another full day of fishing. Maybe today you’ll reel in the fish that makes the King of Kings Salmon Tournament leaderboard and lands you prizes. Evening at leisure. (B, L, D)

Day 5: After breakfast, there is time for fishing before your return late morning so the catch can be trimmed and packaged for your return. Enjoy lunch before boarding the floatplane for the trip back to Ketchikan. Transfer to your hotel with rest of day at leisure.  (B,L)

Day 6: Transfer to the airport and depart for Indianapolis.
