About Steamboat Bay Fishing Club

Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is the closest lodge to the best fishing spots of Alaska's famed Inside Passage. This exclusive wilderness luxury resort presides over a scenic, private bay on the north coast of Noyes Island near Ketchikan, Alaska, just 90 minutes from Seattle.

Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is the sister property to Waterfall Resort. Waterfall Resort has been the premier sport-fishing destination in Alaska for the last 30 years. Both properties are located in Southeast Alaska approximately 45 miles apart by water.

The Employee Experience

We are looking for individuals available from June–August. Crew members are paid hourly and can expect approximately one day off per week, 10–12 hours per day. As our season is short, we ask that any prior commitments conflicting with the season be discussed during the interview process. 

Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is an incredibly special place. It's surrounded by nature and wildlife, and employees best suited for this environment thrive in such locations. For crew members new to remote working and living, camp life can be a transition. On days off, crew can explore the area or may choose to simply rest. We do not center our social activities around alcohol. Many of our past crew members have been musicians, writers, and travelers looking to share adventures with one another. Meals are taken together and despite being in the wilderness, camp life is not ideal for someone looking for extensive time alone.

We strive to create a memorable season that in the end brings new exciting experiences and newfound friendships. Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is a world-class operation and we hope everyone leaves feeling proud of their accomplishments and season. We value the wilderness and our ability to work and play within it. We're passionate about sharing it with new and longtime guests.  

As we are a boutique operation in an intimate environment with our visitors, all positions are guest-forward in some capacity. This requires everyone to be diligent in their personal presentation even in off hours. For the benefit of the operation and fellow crew members, some rules are strictly enforced, including a no-drug policy and quiet hours.  

Ideal Candidate

Depending on the position you're applying for, some experience may be required and in some cases extensive experience. All employees receive an orientation and training for their respective roles. 

Preferred but not required, our ideal candidates have experience living and working remotely in a guest-forward environment. Luxury hospitality, lodge/resort experience is ideal.

Hardworking, honest, and committed individuals will be best suited to this environment and enjoy working at Steamboat Bay Fishing Club. We are a luxury lodge located in the heart of nature. If this speaks to you, please do apply.

Room and Board

Room and board is included for all employees. Three meals are prepared daily and taken with your fellow crew members. Most dietary considerations are possible, but if strict, they should be discussed during the interview process.

Rooming is generally shared with one other employee of the same sex. Bathroom and laundry facilities are shared as well. There is common space, which includes a shared eating and living area equipped with books and movies. We do dedicate resources to the upkeep of these spaces, but everyone on the team helps ensure these areas are respected and taken care of regularly. 

Getting Here and Getting Around

Employees are responsible for getting themselves to Ketchikan, Alaska. Transportation to and from the lodge is provided at the beginning and end of the season. 

For Fun

Every season we try to ensure each crew member gets to experience fishing and/or wildlife viewing from one our boats with a guide. This is based purely on the availability of a nonguest boat, but historically, this has always been possible. Whales, otters, and other marine life often frequent the bay and can be seen from camp regularly. Crew members have enjoyed hiking, kayaking, and beachcombing.
