"Got a Nice Bear
The trip was unique, took me some effort to get the bear. We saw many bears every day and just waiting for the right one. Food on the boat was a lot better than I thought. Guides are very kind and helpful."
"Great experience with guide
Eli Lucas. Experienced, knowledgeable guide, beautiful location."
This outfitter's operation is very well put together. My youth hunter son was taken care of, and the guides made sure he had a good time and a successful hunt. We will be going back."
"The experience of the entire hunt was exceptional. Couldn’t have asked for better accommodations, food, sights and the number of animals to choose from was impressive."
"Excellent. Honest. Real professional. Would hunt again with Eli in a heartbeat and plan to do so. Very highest recommendation."
"Eli provided my son and I with a fantastic bear hunt on his incredible boat. Everything was taken care. The accommodations were first class and the food was fantastic. We have already booked to head back!"
Boat based hunting offers a unique experience. Eli is one of the hardest working guides I have ever hunted with. Glaciers, ice bergs, seals, whales, and lots of goats."
High Quality: Everything - especially food and accommodations and the people, and how well equipped he was."
"Experience of a lifetime

Great Hunting, Great Food,
All around great hunt."

Reliable, High Quality,

"The time with you was great! You are an excellent guide, very nice, very effective and altogether extremely pleasant. I have been very impressed in a positive way about your deep and profound religious feelings. It's good that those people exist, even if they have become rare nowadays."
"The bear hunting by boat was our 12th hunting tour and the 5th one to Alaska. The two hunting tours to Africa were organized very well, but I must say now that no tour was as good as this one with you."
"The bear hunting was nothing less than fantastic, with 2 large browns (over 8') and two black bears, all with perfect hides taken in just over a week, for two hunters, and sighting over 40 brown bears and 30+ black bears, all on the beaches of Admiralty and Kuiu Islands."
"Eli and Jordan (Eli’s Daughter) are first class people and they worked extremely hard to make sure my Dad and I had a successful hunt. Eli is a safe and ethical guide that does things the way they should be done. This was my first Hunt with Eli, but my dad and 16 year old daughter had a terrific Mountain Goat hunt with him a few years ago. The beauty of the areas we hunted was nothing short of spectacular. Eli’s boat Is well equipped, and is warm and comfortable. If you’re looking for an outfitter in Alaska to hunt Black or Brown Bear, Black Tail Deer, Mountain Goat, ducks, or go fishing, I highly recommend Eli Lucas of Alaska Costal Hunting."
"I would recommend Eli to anyone, no questions asked or qualms. We had whales at 60 yards, called in a black wolf, a bear, and had a black bear fishing our sockeye pool at the other end (totally cool!) and we got inland for some fabulous fishing. We caught chum, pinks, humpies, sockeye, lingcod, rockfish, halibut and 4 or 5 fish whose names I can't remember. The oldest son of a trusted employee caught a 100 pound halibut, as did Jack. I suspect Eli is as good a hunter as he is a fisherman. Already planning a goat hunting trip for next year. Thanks for lining us up. Outstanding Trip!! Worth every cent."
"Our black bear hunt was a terrific experience. It was our first time to Alaska, but will not be the last. Eli is very professional and worked hard to make my hunt a success. Staying on the boat was a great experience, especially since it was raining the first 4 days non stop! I am planning a return hunt for Brown Bear. I was not calibrated for the amount of "downtime" for the hunt, the best time to stalk is in the evenings, so the mornings were "long" - not bad, just was not ready. I am a morning person and love to get moving or doing something. But the hunt was a major success - I was able to get a monster black bear!"
