SOUTHEAST ALASKA IS ONE OF THE MOST MAGICAL PLACES ON EARTH!
Come let us show you this magnificent Alaskan country onboard our flagship vessel, the Alaskan Grandeur, our 78 foot custom yacht. The pristine Alaska Panhandle, sometimes referred to as Southeast Alaska, is the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of Alaska, which lies west of the northern half of the Canadian province of British Columbia. The majority of the panhandle's area is part of the Tongass National Forest, the United States' largest national forest. In many places, the international border runs along the crest of the Boundary Ranges of the Coast Mountains. The region is noted for its mild rainy climate and beautiful scenery. Southeast Alaska is a temperate rain forest within the Pacific temperate rain forest zone, which extends from northern California to Prince William Sound. The most common tree species are Sitka Spruce and Western Hemlock. Wildlife includes Brown Bears, Black Bears, Wolves, Sitka Black-tail Deer, Humpback Whales, Orcas, five species of Salmon, Bald Eagles, Harlequin Ducks, Scoters, and Marbled Murrelets. We are anxious to share this wondrous place with you on your next hunting or fishing adventure!

GLACIER GUIDES, INC. IS DEDICATED TO PROVIDING ETHICAL, FREE-RANGE, SPOT-AND-STALK HUNTING ADVENTURES.
The pure form of hunting is something that may be viewed differently by each hunter, but when examined closely, there are some key elements that set “pure” Hunting apart from “shooting” or “collecting.” One thing is for sure; if you, as a Hunter, wish to come and experience some of the most dramatic and strikingly beautiful country in the world, with the added bonus of hunting some of the most magnificent creatures on the planet, then this is the adventure for you. Fair chase hunting, especially for difficult, rare, or larger trophies, may require more than one hunt. Glacier Guides maintains nearly 100% Shooting Opportunity for trophy Brown Bear, Black Bear, Mountain Goat, and Black-tail Deer.
