Beautiful with tons to do and see. People are very friendly and helpful. Great for all ages with so much to do. Exciting wildlife everywhere, we saw otters and Eagles just from sitting on the shore. Mountains in the back make for breathtaking views. Definitely have to see for yourself.

We started with a "fast" boat trip to fox Island. The Captain really put the gas to it which if you're thinking of sitting outside it can get very cold,,,,even in August. The food was not bad at Fox Island but not like you might be use to from the cruise. The rest of the trip was the best beautiful... More

KenaiFjords Tour Company out of Seward Alaska. Great time. We saw otters, dolfins, puffins, bald eagles, and amazing little coves. The sun on the glacier was spectacular. Great naturalist on board. Can't say enough.

Beautiful Area, lots of hikes around and close, if you sit out long enough at the bay you'll definitely catch some otters eating.

Breathtaking views are everywhere around Resurrection Bay. The mountains are a majestic backdrop when viewing from Seward. The bay is even more impressive if you have the chance to view it in other places. I would recommend from above on Mt. Marathon or from within on a bay cruise. Everywhere the scenery is fantastic.

We decided to park our RV here as the scenery was absolutely beautiful! We got to see the sea otters playing around in the water every night! Very entertaining!

The weather was not really pleasant when we docked in Seward but the beauty surrounding you is breathtaking. It's one of those places that will forever be visualized in your mind.
