The Lodge at Whale Pass

Key Team Players Needed at our unique Operation in SE Alaska

The Lodge at Whale Pass is a luxury lodge in the heart of the Inside Passage catering to families, couples, corporate groups, and avid anglers seeking an active vacation. Our goal is to provide unique experiences, enhanced by the natural beauty of southeast Alaska. We seek to excel in hospitality services and provide the finest accommodations and food and beverage operation in Alaska.

The Lodge at Whale Pass is located on Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska. Employees fly into Ketchikan and The Lodge at Whale Pass provides transportation to Whale Pass.

About The Lodge at Whale Pass

The lodge operates seasonally (June through August) with a staff of up to 25 serving up to 30 guests per day. 

While staff is hired for specific jobs, everyone takes responsibility to serve our guests.  This is done in a remote environment, lacking many of the conveniences of the modern world, which requires an ability to take initiative and to be comfortable with constant change and challenges.

The Employee Experience

Most of the staff live on-site in a communal environment and all become part of a tight, hard working group demonstrating industry leading hospitality and providing guests with the vacation of a lifetime.  We are a family run business and our core operating philosophy is that the employee comes first.  We endeavor to provide them with all of the tools they need and a comfortable and well defined work environment so that they can focus on satisfying our guests.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate is a self starter with a passion for hospitality. Flexibility and the ability to work under pressure is required. They should also possesses a love of the outdoors and be smoke and drug free.

Room and Board

Housing and food is provided as part of the terms of employment. (Special diets not accommodated) Most employees live on site. Living with your co-workers heightens the need for staff to work well with and respect each other. The reward is a valuable experience that will serve you well in all future employment endeavors and the formation of life-long friends.

Travel expenses between Seattle and the lodge are reimbursed once the summer job commitment is met.

Getting Here and Getting Around

Employees fly into Ketchikan Alaska and then get to Prince of Wales Island by float plane or ferry. They will then be met and driven by vehicle or boat to The Lodge at Whale Pass.
