Alaska's Waterfall Resort Gift Wrap A Fish CyberMonday Sale

This is a sponsored post with Mums the Word Blogger Network and Waterfall Resort. All opinions are my own.
Waterfall Resort Alaska
I watch too much reality TV. Lately, I've been on an Alaska kick with shows like Alaska: The Last Frontier, to the hard luck Alaskan Bush People, and Life Below Zero to name a few. Deadliest Catch probably started it all. Been always interested in visiting, more so lately with all the attention on TV, though Kavik seems a bit much for me. Living Alaska makes me wonder if I ever want to live there.

One place worth looking into if you want to visit Alaska is the Waterfall Resort. They're Alaska's most popular fishing lodge. They have a great Cyber Monday sale going on if you want to buy me or, more likely, the man in your life a fantastic fishing trip of a lifetime. The sale is called "Gift Wrap a Fish" and is basically free airfare for a trip next summer.

The lodge has been around for over a hundred years and used to be a record-breaking Alaskan seafood cannery that shipped salmon all over the word. For over 30 years now, Waterfall Resort has been operated as a private sport fishing lodge and is the perfect place for a guys-only remote fishing weekend. It is on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island by SE Alaska’s Inside Passage. They even have a dedicated fish processing team to professionally clean, trim, pack, and freeze your catch.

Make sure you find out about what licenses you need and the tag and bag limits from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. You don't want to ruin a perfect vacation by getting fined for not following the rules. For instance, you can't fly in and hunt for big game the same day. However, Waterfall Resorts can fly you to Ketchikan in the morning and have you on the water catching fish later that afternoon.

The sale sounds like a great deal if you've been on the fence about the trip due to the airfare cost. In the summer, Boston-to-Anchorage flight costs are around $650 or so, so would easily be covered by the special.
