Natural Getaways

Thinking of taking that eco-conscious vacation somewhere tropical, well you may want to think again and look a bit to your north towards the forests before you had for a jungle.

Steamboat Bay Fishing Club has been awarded the sustainable tourism certificate from Alaska Green Adventure (AGA). Opened in 2009, AGA is the state’s only sustainability certification program run by Alaska Travel Industry Association for hospitality and tourism businesses operating in Alaska. The program recognizes businesses that are engaging in business practices that benefit economic, environmental, and social sustainability.

“The businesses certified by AGA are leaders in the tourism industry. They are progressive companies that believe that outstanding Alaska experiences can also be sustainable and of benefit to visitors and hosts alike,” says Sarah Leonard, President & CEO of the ATIA.

As a leader in Alaska’s adventure tourism industry, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club recognizes that the continuation of its business depends on the natural environment, heritage, and communities of southeast Alaska. Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is surrounded by Tongass National Forest, the largest rainforest in North America. The nutrient rich environment supports a prolific food chain and creates the ideal location for salmon to feed before making their return up the rivers to spawn. By committing to management practices that move toward zero waste, support local artists and businesses, recognize the unique history of the area, and enables people to safely experience Alaska wilderness environments, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club supports sustaining the location’s environment as well as tradition.

“Not only does the vitality of our business depend on the health of the environment, but we also want future generations to have the opportunity to enjoy the Alaskan fishing tradition for a long time to come,” Steve Cockrell, General Manager.
