Welcome aboard our 90’ steel hull custom built expedition Charter Yacht M/Y Bear Paw serving the San Juan Islands, Washington State to the South East Alaskan waters. M/Y Bear is launching for service spring of 2023.M/Y Bear Paw is focused on showcasing all that the Pacific Northwest and South East Alaska has to offer. Spring brings in the herring run which attracts hundreds of whales and thousands of birds to the Sitka area and beyond, appropriately known as a photographer’s paradise. Early summer brings out the waking Brown Bears and the King and Chum salmon runs begins. Sitka, Alaska, boasts to have one of the strongest King Salmon runs in the state. Late summer leading in to fall, the bears are fluffy and well fed with the continuation of King, Sockeye, Chum and Coho salmon runs that attract various other species whom all capitalize on this annual event. There is no set schedule and the vessel can go in to places that large cruse ships cannot go. This is a personalized experience depending on the guests needs, interests and activity level. An elevator is available to serve all three decks on board for any guests with limited mobilities. A wide range of activities like hiking, kayaking, beachcombing, fishing and setting shrimp and crab pots for the daily catch is a way of life. To sit back, relax and enjoy a book, or watch the shorelines go by while underway……you will birdwatch and find countless species like sea and river otters, humpback whales, orcas whales, porpoises’, stellar sealions, harbor seals, bald eagles, hummingbirds and we will discover some local natural hot springs too!

This is a luxury expedition charter vessel like no other. Spacious king size walk around staterooms with luxury cotton linens and ensuite heads with stand-up showers is an eyebrow raiser to say the least. No one stateroom outshines the other and are fairly equal. A two-person elevator is available for guests whom have limited mobility. There is no off-limit area for guests who have limited mobilities. Ceiling height is 7’ throughout and the interior is immaculately adorned with mahogany woodwork and high-end furnishings. Relax and allow your crew to take care of you

All walk around king staterooms with dry heads.

Bill grew up hunting, fishing and flipping hot rods in Montana. One day a friend invited him to go Sailing on Flathead Lake, Montana and life has never been the same since. Yearning for more, his two young boys and wife headed to the Caribbean to a newly purchased sight unseen sailboat to give the cruising lifestyle a whirl. Turning wrenches, doing marine mechanical repairs supported his family over the next 14 years travelling on various boats, later doing the Pacific side of the USA doing the Columbia River and eventually settled in to San Juan Island, Washington State so the sons’ would be involved in sports and finish high school. Having an established business doing marine repair, Bill also operated the Vessel Assist fleet (Now called Boat US) for the San Juan Island territory working closely with the USCG on search & rescue and salvage operations. You can imagine the tall tales of such operations and miles travelled, Bill is a story teller. Lots of bold moves and close calls in that line of business.

Remarried in 2014 to Chrystal, Bill returned to the Caribbean to operate charter boats together. Hurricanes Irma & Maria steered Bill and Chrystal to return to their roots back to the Pacific Northwest and return to their 57’ sailing ketch. Alaska has always been on the bucket list so they untied the lines in 2019 for Alaska and now call Sitka, Alaska home. Back to the land of hunting and fishing, Alaska has provided and become home under the northern lights. It is customary to raise a drink with good company for sundowner’s and raise a little yee-haw and hell-yah!!! Alaska and the Pacific Northwest lifestyle on a boat is incredible and Bill is keen to share his world with you…..especially on Bear Paw!!

Chrystal spent her youth playing billiards and managing a lighting showroom in Victoria, BC Canada. Her passion for the ocean began with her first 16’ power boat at age 20, to use as a Gulf Island hopper for the weekend get aways, packing a tent to pitch under the apple trees at Port Browning, Pender Island to enjoy the live music. Three upgraded boat later, expanding her cruising grounds, solo handed, she met Bill in Friday Habor, Wa and soon married, on a yacht of course! The shared dream of sailing away in to the sunset on a path to anywhere was the plan!! Chrystal does admit power boats are better……you never miss a happy hour destination that way! Especially when your island hopping!!

Food is Chrystal’s passion. Hands down, the reason for living. Accompanied with good company and fine drink, life doesn’t get any better. Her casual approach to dining is inclusive and your welcome to hang out in the galley!! Chrystal has taken a special interest since being in Alaska in smoking salmon. This is a perfect opportunity for guests to learn how to smoke your own fish if your out there catchin it!! Chrystal is happy to accommodate dietary needs and likes to cook from scratch…….not a box!! Homemade breads, BBQ’, fresh caught fish and smoked meats are Chrystal’s favorite items to share with guests.

Chrystal also holds a USCG license, complimenting Bill’s license which makes them a formidable team. Combined, Bill and Chrystal know the San Juan Islands’ and Gulf Islands’ thoroughly and have spent the last 3 years discovering what SE Alaska has to offer. Thousands of miles covered together and more to discover. Bear Paw is a dream come true and awaits new friends to join.

Crew/deckhand
Caitlyn is a keen calligrapher and has been commissioned to design and draw a number of restaurant chalkboard menus, as well as wedding seating plans and place settings. She also enjoys keeping fit, with weight lifting and boxing being her every day go to. Caitlyn also enjoys cold water
swimming whenever she returns home in Scotland, and now happy to find cold water again in Alaska! Caitlyn finds it's great for
both her physical and mental health. Yacht interior is her main background with experiences from all over the world. She is beyond excited to start his new journey with Bear Paw Charters in Sitka this 2023 Summer Season and serves as stew and deckhand.

Amazing Vacation!
After I booked 6 nights, I began to have questions. Could we spend 6 nights in tight quarters with these two strangers and all get along? Could just the five of us (including 2 teen boys) all get along?? Would we get seasick? All my fears and apprehensiveness melted away as soon as we stepped foot on the boat and met Bill and Chrystal. From start to finish, Bill and Chrystal couldn't have been more gracious or accommodating. Bill and Chrystal have a true gift of being able to read their guests. They truly want to please you and make this a trip of a lifetime. As I look to returning home, I know I will miss waking up on this amazing boat and being taken care of by Bill and Chrystal. We had an amazing vacation. Thank you with all of our hearts!!

Sept 2023 Alaskan Charter
My family had the most amazing Alaskan charter experience aboard Bear Paw! Captain Bill and Chrystal's expertise was far far beyond my expectation. They made my family feel comfortable, safe, fulfilled and loved. A thousand "thank you's"! would not scratch the surface of expressing my gratitude. We are truly blessed to have connected with you.
