I have been going to a fishing lodge out of Ketchikan for years. Had heard about Salmon Falls but thought it could not be as good as the higher priced lodge. Well I was very wrong. I got talked into going by the GM at Salmon Falls , Matt. It is very easy to get in and out of the area as they pick you up and drop you off right at the airport. The lodge is a short drive from the airport and Ketchikan. GREAT People and service from the GM to the dock hands. Equipment and guides are all first class. DON'T fish NO Problem , they have a package for people that are not there to fish. Rachel, Al, Chris , Matt , Will, Captain Will, Captain Bunker , waiters, servers everyone was amazing. Location is also amazing, we caught lots of fish , went shrimping, saw whales, eagles , dolphins you name it.. It actually was so good I went back a second time.. Try Salmon Falls you will love it.

We spent a wonderful weekend fishing and relaxing at Salmon Falls. The dinners were quite tasty, and all of the service from drivers to boat captains were attentive and friendly. The resort’s fishing boats are comfortable and get you on the fish quickly. We highly recommend and hope to go back ourselves in the future.

We have been coming to Salmon Falls for the last four years. Every trip has been excellent and its hard to believe it gets better every year. All the staff we met this year were positive and always sure to greet you. The food is excellent with great menu options and the bar area is a nice comfortable place to spend some time (as is the beautiful deck area just outside). They even now have music/entertainment on multiple nights. They have new self-guided skiffs and brand new guide boats with top of the line equipment which are a nice upgrade from past years. Plus, if you get tired of fishing they have other excursion options you can do like float plane sight seeing which picks-up right from the dock, crab pot and shrimp pots, hiking in nearby state park, even visiting a bear sighting area! Unlike other fishing lodges where you are remote, the food & drink are basic, and there are limited amenities, this place has it all. It would be a great place for a family trip (we are planning that next). Highly recommend it. We'll be back again next year...

This was my first time traveling to Alaska. When we arrived at Salmon Falls, the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The resort is absolutely breathtaking. The food was great and we enjoyed playing the outdoor games on the deck in the evening. On the first day, we took a float plane that picked us up on the resort's dock. We fished for 2 days and wish we would have fished another! This was truly an incredible experience and I cannot wait to go back to Salmon Falls!

A group of 6 of us spent 3 nights at the resort and are already planning our return trip!!! Salmon Falls does a great job taking care of all the details to provide a true vacation. Reservations were easy, the office was great in assisting in getting covid testing arranged, pickup was on time and friendly with a quick drive from Ketchikan. At the resort the views are amazing, staff is friendly, the food is great and it’s an overall wonderful environment. Our group enjoyed 2 days of fishing with Captain Will. I appreciated the high quality boat that we were on. Even with some moving water the boat was steady and everyone was comfortable. We were highly successful bringing in 25+ fish per day!! In addition to the great fishing/catching we saw a pod of orcas and many humpback whales. The experience was adventurous and peaceful all in one. I highly recommend it.
