Hunt bears along the coast from a live-aboard luxury yaught. Very unique vessel based, coastal brown bear hunt. This is an excellent guide use area, located along the rugged gulf coast out of Valdez, AK.

Transportation and accommodations are either on our live-aboard vessels, or a comfortable fly-in beach camp.

This area has a good population of big Bears, & we have enjoyed a 100% success rate on our spring hunts conducted here. Depending on the island being hunted, the hunt is either vessel based or conducted out of a remote cabin.

I think a patient hunter should be able to collect at least a 9′ bear during his/her hunt, with good odds for a larger bear too. There is nothing like hunting the largest predator in the world to the avid big game hunter!” -Marc Warnke

Hunt in Style from the Outfitters’ Yacht:
Transportation and accommodations for these coastal black bear hunts are based out of the outfitters’ boat. Skiffs are 20’ and the boat is 53 x 17. Sleeping arrangements are bunk style, and there is a shower on board. The meals are just basic home cooking, but if you tell the Outfitter prior to your hunt what you prefer, he will get what you request within reason. Expect to eat lots and lots of fresh seafood such as Halibut, Rockfish, and Shrimp that you catch during your trip.
