Position: Chef for Alaska hunting charters - MUST BE LEGAL TO WORK IN THE US - US Passport, green card or work permit.

Yacht: 75' - 80' Motor expedition

Job ID: 1037850

Location: Alaska

Start date: April 10th - June 20th (around 65 days)

Itinerary: Alaska wilderness - on the hook little to no cell service

Licence Required: Culinary trained or a good restaurant apprenticeship

Requirements: STCW + Refresher ENG1 or current fit for duty marine medical (valid for 6 months) Passport - US or green card US work permit

Responsibilities: Cooking nice meals for the hunting/charter guests and crew. Breakfast around 9:30am - 10:00am, then pack a boxed/bag lunch for the charterers and the hunting guides. They go out hunting for around 10 hrs. per day and return later around 9pm or so for dinner.

You will also help with table service, stewardess duties as needed. You will be responsible for all provisioning, prep work and clean up.

They also run with a stew/nanny but she is normally attending to the two children on board so will share the duties whenever possible.


This is a hunting/charter with up to 8 guests. YOU WILL NEED TO BE OK WITH HUNTING PRACTICES.

You will be on the boat the majority of the time on hook and the guests and captains/guide go out hunting bear for 10+ hours a day so the chef gets breakfast around 930am - 10am then packs a bag or boxed lunch then when they return around 9 or 10 at night they have dinner.

It stays light there most of the time. You can take the skiff to shore for a walk, break but you can\\'t really go roaming around because you are in the wilderness and you will need to be safety aware.

There is not always service but they try to go to places once per week or so so they can get a connection.

The menu is pretty set so not gourmet but need a good and creative chef (they provision prior to trips) and pretty much most everything is frozen. You can help to provision so you get what you like to use.

It will be a beautiful adventure and probably best for a team but if not has to be two females as they share a cabin (bunks).

You will also get tips which averages about another $200 per week.

NO DRINKING at all for the entire time for crew so that has to be ok too.

They are always in remote locations except for pick ups and drop offs and the crew are busy preparing for the next charter so no real time to explore in town.

Salary range: Within yachting salary guidelines depending on experience

Package: Medical coverage, flights to and from the vessel, paid leave, etc. to be finalized during interview process.
