Great Alaska Staff 2011Alaska Resort Jobs:   Great Alaska Adventures is one of the oldest, most respected sport fishing and adventure travel lodges in the state, and our greatest strength is our experienced, committed staff whose emphasis is to provide the trip of a lifetime for our guests.  If you are looking for Alaska resort work or a chance at guiding in Alaska, this may be it.  If your experience and passion is in sport fishing, the culinary arts, wildlife viewing and nature experiences or maintenance and operations, and if you have a "can do" attitude, a great work ethic and enjoy people, then we encourage you to contact us.
