Join Coastal Alaska Adventures aboard a fully-equipped 58’ vessel and experience a once in a lifetime hunt with an opportunity at some of the largest black bears in North America!


As seen on shows such as Driven TV with Pat and Nicole and Larry Weishuhn you too can cruise the shorelines of SE Alaska’s mainland in search of trophy class black bears. This is truly one of the most sought after hunts in North America, not your average black bear hunt! You will be living aboard a beautiful boat situated the heart of Alaska’s famed inside passage. This is much more than a hunt, it is a true adventure! When not hunting enjoy fishing for halibut and catching wild Alaska crab for dinner!


You will be hunting world class black bears that average over 7-foot with most bears taken qualifying for the SCI Record Book. The 2018 season produced 11 bears in a row over 7-ft with many 20-in skulls. Their largest bear harvested exceeded 21 inches!  The donated hunt includes all lodging, guide service, meals and trophy fees for two hunters for black bear.


NOT INCLUDED: Before/after hunt expenses, hunting license and tag – available from outfitter (no draw).

Coastal Alaska Adventures is Alaska’s leading luxury big game hunting opportunity offering a variety of hunting and fishing excursions along Alaska’s famed inside passage. Master Guide Keegan McCarthy, lifelong Alaskan, started Coastal Alaska Adventures in 2003 with the vision of sharing Alaska’s bounties in style and comfort with a dedication to ethical hunting and conservation. Over the last 15 years, he has worked to secure the best hunting areas along the coast of Alaska, offering a variety of options to pursue legendary Coastal Brown and Black Bears as well as Sitka Black Tail Deer.


Keegan also believes in providing unparalleled service and commitment to all our guests. In 2018, Keegan launched the Artaios (Celtic Bear God), a well appointed vessel that is also an active commercial fishing boat in the waters of Alaska. The vessel was introduced to offer hunting opportunities in Alaska for “every hunter”, offering affordable hunts while still embracing the hunting ethics and standards of Coastal Alaska Adventures. Keegan and his team of top-notch professional guides will insure you have the experience of a lifetime.


Beyond the hunt, Keegan has dedicated himself to the future of hunting and conservation. Keegan has hosted such hunts as the Pathfinder Hunt and Dream Hunt for the SCI Foundation. Keegan believes there are two paths we must follow to continue our legacy, education and conservation and works hard to promote and support both.
