The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Deal: 35% off sportfishing package at Alaska's Waterfall Resort

Two nights at Waterfall Resort plus salmon fishing, meals and fish cleaning start at $1,995 per person.

Alaska's Waterfall Resort is putting its sportfishing trips on sale this summer. On selected dates, visitors save 35% on two-night stays at the cannery-turned-fishing lodge near Ketchikan on Prince of Wales Island.

The deal: The Waterfall Resort on 52 acres puts the sale price at $1,995 per person, based on double occupancy.

The price includes lodging in an ocean-front cabin or lodge room, meals (including wine with dinner) and guided sport fishing on 25-foot cabin cruisers.

You can expect to catch Chinook and Coho salmon, halibut, ling cod and other fish. The cost includes fishing gear, fish cleaning and professional packing of your catch for the trip home.

When: The offer is good on select dates between mid-June and mid-August. It's based on availability.

Details: For those who love to fish and want a wilderness experience, the savings on this package are great. It usually costs $3,090 per person.

The two-day trips are squeezed into the summer schedule and may go fast, according to the resort. Note, too, the price doesn't include a sea plane ride from Ketchikan International Airport to the resort. That costs $420 extra.


March 30, 3:45 p.m.: An earlier version of this post incorrectly said the seaplane service took visitors from Seattle to Ketchikan International Airport in Alaska. It takes visitors from Ketchikan International Airport to the resort.
