I could stare at Resurrection Bay for hours. It is so beautiful. I was here with wifey for 2 days and we had a wonderful time on the boat trip, in the hotel and in the best seafood restaurant.

We traveled to Seward to visit its aquarium which was indeed, very nice and interesting, with a chance to touch the rays and another sea critter. We were told that whales were often seen in the bay, but nothing was showing up to show off while we were there for a few hours. We were actually here in 2006 and... More

Beautiful environment with sea lions, sea otters, whales, puffins and other wildlife. Tours on Kenai Fjords National Park are great.

The tour boats take you out into resurrection bay which is teeming with wildlife. Gorgeous mountains touch down right into the bay. This is a not miss in seward.

Right away came about a seal and then several eagles above us followed by a couple of porpoises being us. the mountains in this bay are majestic with beautiful waterfalls right into the bay.

Resurrection Bay is one of the first places I visited when coming to Alaska in 2006 - maybe that's why it's one of my favorite places. Got to experience kayak rescues in it's chilling waters, watch eagles on the beach and in the air, watch the sun rising over the Chugach mountains and see humpback whales.

I've paddled hundreds of miles over the last ten years in Res Bay and I'm never disappointed. The views are amazing, the beaches are amazing and the wildlife is amazing! My personal favorite is kayaking at Fox Island!

We went out on a smaller boat to tour the bay and we were glad we did. Much nicer than the big tour boats (which were sold out when we got there).

I don't ususally go for the group tours, but his was very nice. We saw lots of animals and the Captain was great at manuvering the boat so all of us got a good look at the whales.
