Coldbay and the Alaska Peninsula is a harsh and remote area and very unforgiving with the average daily winds in these areas between 15-30 mph. As it is not unusual to get a day or two a week with 30-50 mph gust’s. Surrounded on one side the Bering Sea and the other side Pacific Ocean it just makes its own weather and its usually crappy. This is where Aleutian Islands Waterfowlers offers it’s Trophy combo sea duck hunts late in the season for Pacific Eiders and Brant. We operate a 25ft Grady White with twin engines for safety along with a 23 ft ocean skiff along with a new 2 Core sound 2man layout boats and a single man UFO layout boat along with old trusty zodiacs .. All with new Yamaha motors in 2017 for transportation to theEider grounds offshore and remote parts of the nearby island. Hunting over custom painted E Allen and Tangle free foam filled Pacific Eider decoys each day offers our hunters at opportunity for some close in shooting although you better be prepared to take 40 yd shot at passing birds. Each day 4 hunters will hunt from our main tender boat while then switching over to the layout boat and or zodiacs depending on the weather. Generally 2 hunters will hunt from each of our Zodiaks , and 1 hunter from the UFO layout boat. brutal and hunting King eiders is not for the weak at heart.

We take onto 8 hunters per hunt with 3 guides to provide the most personal services available. Our hunts run 7 days with 6 full days of guided hunting. We start our hunts the end of October and run until Dec 16th when the season closes. We provide all meals, lodging and fully guided hunting over decoys with boats, among with walk in hunts on local ponds streams and estuaries. The average temperature is around 25 -35 degrees and we hunt in snow camo and tradition camo depending on the conditions. Our normal backdrop is lightly frozen covered shorelines this time of year. We will be targeting Drake Pacific Eiders , These birds are very weather dependent as the live offshore a good Hunt would consist of getting a couple drake Pacifics. Its very rare a hunter kills four. As they spend too much time chasing all the other trophies including Harlequin,Scoters and Longtails sea ducks and looking for the trophy puddle ducks including the eurasian wigeon. No Whinning allowed only real duck hunters looking for the best chance at many trophies.
