Alaskan Guide Jobs

Great Alaska Adventures is one of the oldest, most respected lodges in the state, and our greatest strength is our experienced, committed staff. If absolutely love fishing or wilderness and wildlife, and have a passion to share that with others, you take pride in a job well done, are unafraid of hard work and truly enjoy people, then you may have what it takes to work with us. Our guides are the very best and then never stop learning. If this sounds like you, then we encourage you to contact us.

All 1st year guides undergo extensive pre-season training, and training program continues on for the life of your time with Great Alaska. Even our 10 and 20 year veterans (yes, we have multiple 10 and 20 year Great Alaska veterans!) continue to train and learn from every day on the water. Weekly guide meetings, management support and thorough licensing support is all part of the program.

That being said, Alaska fishing Guide work is not for everyone, nor is Alaska resort work in general. We would encourage all applicants to consider that the work is challenging, and the long hours combine with our remoteness to create a work environment best suited for those who who do not "punch a clock"! However, if you love fishing, have a knack for making people smile and catching fish, have a great driving record and are ready to work hard, this may just be the best job you ever have.
