About Us

Welcome Aboard!

Alaska Wilderness Charters: Sport Fishing and Stream Fishing  Charters Hot Tub

For a world-class Alaska charter, join us on the 95' motor yacht Glacier Bear (formerly known as the M/Y Caledonia) as we sail through the pristine waters of Southeast Alaska. On our well-planned trips, we'll observe whales, porpoises, otters, sea lions, bears, and seabirds from her decks and explore the bays, fjords, glaciers, and rainforests within her reaches.

Life aboard this beautiful yacht is fully experienced when we take advantage of the kayaks, paddleboards, and 16' skiff for further exploration. We'll hike along the beach or explore deep within the rainforest. We'll paddle our boards or kayaks among sapphire-colored icebergs before returning to Glacier Bear to enjoy a glass of wine with another fabulous Alaskan meal. And the hot tub beckons.

Glacier Bear

Glacier Bear is a beautiful 95' motor yacht, fully capable of navigating the various water conditions of the Inside Passage. Providing you with comfort and safety while you are aboard Glacier Bear is one of our greatest pleasures.

Like similar small Alaska cruise boats, the size of Glacier Bear not only provides for stability but also enhances flexibility. However, unlike a large cruise ship, Glacier Bear is not limited to sailing in deep waters. She can therefore respond more readily to the interests of our guests.

Glacier Bear can get close to the shoreline for better sightseeing and maneuver into tiny coves where you'll experience wildlife up close and personal. Glacier Bear can take passengers just about anywhere!

The beautiful interior of Glacier Bear has a fully-remodeled galley, granite counter-tops, imported mirror-finish vanity bowls, highly-varnished teak trim, and newly-appointed staterooms. Glacier Bear includes the creature comforts and aesthetic touches that make for a memorable wilderness experience.

Glacier Bear accommodates individuals or couples in four separate staterooms, each featuring a private bathroom.


  • Master Suite. Queen Bed, Private Bathroom
  • Master Stateroom. Queen Bed, Private Bathroom
  • Twin Stateroom. Two Twin Beds, Private Bathroom
  • Twin Plus One. Two Twin Beds, with a bonus Bunk Bed. Private Bathroom

The versatile accommodations of Glacier Bear make her perfect for private groups of six to eight adults and for family groups of six to eight adults and children.

For Reel

For Reel is our 28' fishing tender. With the For Reel, we can easily accommodate those who wish to fish and explore. And when it comes to fishing, no other avocation comes close to offering the satisfaction one feels after a successful fishing excursion. With the variety and size of fish available in Alaska's waters, fishing is a big attraction for nearly everyone.

While aboard the For Reel, our guests frequently catch King salmon, halibut, rockfish, Dungeness crab, and spotted prawns. Our experienced Alaskan fishing guide knows these waters well, and he will take you to many of his secret fishing locations on several guided fishing trips.
