Alaska Coastal Black Bear Hunts
These vessel-based coastal black bear hunts are based from a live-in, luxury yacht.
These Alaska trophy black bear hunts are conducted in Prince William Sound in Alaska Unit 6 where the rugged Chugach Mountains meet the saltwater.
You’ll be hunting big salmon-fed bears just coming out of hibernation in an area that has one of the highest bear populations in Alaska and they typically square between 6-7 feet. These black bears have the best hair quality on the planet, and a few record book black bears are taken every year. Large boars with perfect hides are the norm.
A bonus on this trip is the fishing, waterfowl hunting and blacktail deer hunting. This outfitter only takes three groups per year on this hunt, and they are in the spring when the weather is nicest. This is a quality, fun hunt for a trophy-sized bear.

This is how an Alaska coastal black bear hunting trip should be! Cruising the coastal shorelines in a boar and glassing the tidal flats produce plenty of spot and stalk opportunities.”
The hunting is almost what you would consider…. luxury.
Wake up before light and glass the surrounding bay where the boat is anchored, eat breakfast, pack sack lunch, and get out on the skiffs to beach comb for bears. Come back for hot lunch and move boat if necessary, or repeat.
Big boat moves will be done mid day. Bears are usually spotted along the coast from skiffs out in the bays. Once a good bear is spotted, you and your guide will stalk into range.
