Seasons For Hire
Whaler's Cove Lodge is a sport fishing lodge located on Killisnoo Island in remote Southeast Alaska, and is in its 40th year of welcoming guests. This year approximately 600 guests will be joining us during our 82 day season.
Whaler's Cove Lodge provides professional personal service to guests looking to immerse themselves in the best Alaska has to offer in both sport fishing and wilderness experiences. Humpback Whales & Orcas along with Alaskan Brown Bear are our closest neighbors. With a maximum guest capacity of 32, we primarily cater to fishing, but our adventure tours continue to grow each year. Our crew to guest ratio is 1:1.
We are not looking for just another heartbeat to perform work, we are seeking crew with heart, who care, and will provide exceptional customer service.
Whaler’s Cove Lodge is a unique employment environment. We operate a cooperative, self-sufficient, remote wilderness operation that requires an immense amount of foresight, communication, and teamwork. We are seeking crew members who are truly customer service oriented who strive to provide the best vacation experience possible for each and every one of our guests.
We expect our crew members to embrace their work every day and to be leaders with their exemplary professionalism. We have high-performance expectations for our crew to provide a welcoming, tasteful, relaxing, and fulfilling remote wilderness experience to our guests who quite often become our friends, returning year after year. It’s our crew who graciously hosts our guests every day and who make the guest experience memorable.
Our goal is to have a crew that inspires and respects each other and creates a satisfying and successful seasonal experience. Many of our crew have been on the Whaler’s Cove Lodge team for multiple seasons.
