Ketchikan, Alaska has amazing wildlife and guests of Salmon Falls don’t need to go far to enjoy. It’s not uncommon to see a pod of humpback or orca whales right from our restaurant and deck. For a closer look, guests are welcome to go down to the dock. Last year we had a giant humpback whale feeding less than 10’ from the dock. It was an amazing sight to be seen.

Bald Eagles nest in the lush tree tops surrounding the resort. They frequently fly overhead and their high-pitched whistling and piping notes can be heard throughout the day. Seal and sea otters can be seen bobbing their noses up and down in the waves.
Of course, there are bears, deer and birds of many species on the island. If you’re interested in taking a guided tour our staff can help you arrange a trip to the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary or a walk to Settler’s Cove to explore on your own.
