On this week’s episode of Ultimate Survival Alaska, day 28 of the group’s journey, the men are facing one of their most difficult legs yet –navigating The Prince William Sound. Leg 7 of their trip; it’s pouring down rain and winter is finally unfolding. To navigate the mine field of ice, the men have been supplied with native vessels: an umiak and two bidarkas.
Matt makes a bold move and selects the single kayak, one of the bidarkas, and his father and friend Tyler join him in the other bidarka. The Bidarka is a smaller vessel which lacks the stability and ease of control of the umiak. With the 3 men, Marty, Matt, and Tyler not very far along on the journey, Marty’s worst nightmare is about to unfold.
Fighting turbulent glaciers, currents, and incomprehensible hunger, the group faces one of its most challenging decisions they have yet encountered.
