Catching the fighting silver salmon. If the weather is great it is fun fishing, but if the weather is windy than it is tricky to be out there fishing.

On a sunny day Resurrection Bay is one of the most beautiful places in Alaska. Awesome hiking, beachcombing, wildlife viewing and general fun to be had!

I was rating this attraction on my cell phone and mistakenly sircled 3. Sorry, hope I was able to fix it. It is by any means one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced. Beautiful, serene and a lot to see.

There is just too much to see in a 2 or 3 hr cruise. Spend the money for the all-day cruise. You'll see whales, seals, sea otters, puffins, sea lions, eagles.....more animals than I could name. You also have the chance to see some land animals on the shores and calving glaciers. There is nothing more beautiful that a sea... More

The short walk from Seward Harbour to Downtown Seward is well serviced by a coastal paved pathway. Looking over the bay is so peaceful and serene. The snowline is still low even in late May.Evening brings its own beauty with the setting sun.

The bay is filled with whales in May, and the tour guides on the day cruises know where to find them. We have also kayaked the bay several times, and stayed in the state park cabins that are available to rent. An amazing place.

I have taken one of the tours twice now, once with my husband a few years ago and and once with my kids and grandkids this past summer. Thoroughly enjoyed it both times. We were very fortunate with the weather and saw lots of wildlife both times. The trip this summer was with Major Marine Tours. We took the five... More
