HUNT THE GIANT COASTAL/ISLAND BLACK BEARS
Fully Guided, Boat-based, Alaskan Hunting Trips

Alaska Glacier Adventures specializes in conducting fully guided, boat-based Trophy Coastal/Island Black Bear Hunts out of Klawock in Southeast Alaska. Klawock is only 6 miles from Craig, AK and they are both located on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island, which is the southern-most island in Alaska. Klawock is an easy 2.5 hour flight from Seattle, Washington on Alaska Airlines via Ketchikan.

The hunting opportunities for giant Black Bear and Sitka Blacktail Deer on Prince of Wales are THE BEST in Alaska for a variety of reasons. The lack of hunting pressure, the remoteness of the area, the prime habitat, the excellent genetics and our expertise of putting you on a trophy bear all combine to make this the best black bear hunting in the world.

The bears on Prince of Wales were recently reclassified by Safari Club International as Coastal/Island Black Bear due to their massive size. There are more record book black bear entries from here than the rest of North America. They regularly produce monster bruins that weigh over 350 pounds, square out between 7' and 8' and have skulls that score between 19 1/2" and 22". We consistently guide hunters to bears that are BIG and OLD while doing it with expertise and great attitudes.

Prince of Wales Island is 135 miles long, 45 miles wide, is bigger than Delaware, is the 3rd largest island in the USA behind Kodiak and Hawaii. Prince of Wales Island does NOT have brown/grizzly bears. Its large size combined with a temperate climate and abundant food make this the optimal black bear habitat. This coastal island is covered with a dense spruce, hemlock and cedar forest and has miles of rocky shoreline, numerous bays, tidal flats and rivers. Two other big game animals reside on the island; Sitka Blacktail Deer and Wolves. Prince of Wales is just 668 miles north of Seattle and its mild climate causes the bears to come out earlier than most areas. The first bear sighting is usually around April 10th and many more in the following days, until May 10th, when most bears are out of their dens.

Hunting with 18 year veteran Alaskan hunting guide Kurt Whitehead and Trina Nation will have you grinning from ear to ear.
