    When I have looked up the liveaboard prices it has come out to be a bit more than $200 a steak! I think we got a lot better deal than that plus a trip of a lifetime which you can't put a price on.

    I realize you are asking about a "live-aboard" boat type of hunt but I'll tell you about our little adventure anyways!

    We did a trip over Thanksgiving with a transporter called "Spirit of Alaska Wilderness Adventures". This place is an old cannery built in the 1930s and was partially converted over to a hunters and fishermans adventure destination. The guy who runs it is Steele Davis. I think he will take up to 7-8 hunters a week. Nice guy that treats you very fair. He is only a transporter and NOT a guide. He will take you out every morning in a landing craft and drop you off in different spots, then pick you up at the end of the day or when you radio him at pre-determined radio-check times. When returning to the lodge with your kill, he has a nice room to process your meat and hang it. During our trip, He took us out and dropped crab-pots, took us out to whack some ducks.....overall treated us well. The guest cabin is good size with 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms and full kitchen. The cost was $875.00 per hunter for a full week. This did not include the trip TO Kodiak or the float plane ride TO the lodge. I used air miles for the ride to Kodiak and the float plane was $450.00 r.t.

    We shot some nice deer and harvested some huge Tanner Crabs. My son and I will be going back there again!

    Would you mind sharing the name of the guide you used for your Kodiak hunt?
