About Us – Alaska Wildfowl Adventures

This coming season will be Alaska Wildfowl Adventures 10th year in business! Over the years we have always worked at staying true to the reason we started the business, to share some of the most unique and adventurous duck hunting in North America with duck hunting enthusiasts around the world. We specialize in high quality hunts for trophy birds with a low guide to client ratio. You will experience one of the most beautiful places in Alaska on our Valdez sea duck hunts.

A lot has changed in the last 10 seasons, we have gone from running a single open 18’ boat to be able to use 4 boats different boats, including our 30’ tender boat and layout boats. Each year we explore and find new places to hunt within Prince William Sound, you we experience amazing hunting and amazing scenery while here. Where else are you going to hunt in front of a tide water glacier with ice bergs floating by?

In 2015 we are adding a two man layout to our fleet, making our scoter and old squaw hunting better than ever. We also have upgraded our lodging to Robe Lake Lodge, go to our lodge page for pictures. There has never been a better time to make the trip to Alaska for waterfowl.

Shawn The Scout. Shawn is the guy always up for the next adventure and go explore a new location. What he does as a weekend trip in his jet boat most guys would consider a life time trip and more adventure than they can handle. Put a zodiac in a crate on a plane and he will go duck hunt anywhere. He has traveled with us to look for new areas to hunt multiple times. A long time Alaskan he has traveled to almost all the remote regions of the state.
