Waterfall Resort was a commercial cannery from 1912 through the late 1960s, home to a rugged community of seiners, fish trappers and international workers all coming together to manage the most prolific and innovative salmon processing facility in Alaska. Beginning in 1983, a group of investors remodeled all the buildings and docks, adding powerful water and electrical capabilities. In the years since, Waterfall has hosted more than 50,000 guests—a lot of them corporate incentive groups from companies like Ford, Toyota and American Tire Distributors, many of them multiple repeat visitors. Accommodations range from 26 waterfront cabins to 10 lodge rooms above the still-operating General Store to 8 suites with full kitchens and wood-burning fireplaces.
Steamboat Bay Fishing Club opened recently on Noyes Island, just northwest of Waterfall Resort. This intimate, exclusive lodge hosts groups of up to 16 in four oceanfront and four forest-view luxury suites, all conveniently located just down the hall from the Great Room, where guests gather for meals, drinks or just to enjoy the breathtaking two-story views of the bay, the huge stone fireplace, native Alaskan artwork and numerous comfortable couches and overstuffed chairs perfect for relaxing in after a day of fishing. There’s also a loft above the Great Room with a pool table, game tables, TV and a second bar. Add a sauna, hot tub, ocean kayaks and a host of other luxury amenities, and you have your own private Alaskan fishing resort—a perfect place for a high-level corporate confab or a small incentive group.
