One of my most favorite places to take people when they visit Alaska. Resurrection bay is home to the bluest waters, mountain glaciers, otters doing the backstroke, sealions frolicking in the water, and of course further out at the mouth you can see Killer whales....My very first time on a cruise through the bay was Easter Sunday in 1997, it...

When my family visits Seward, we always walk the beach of Ressurection Bay. You can usually see otters, sea lions, or seals playing around in the bay. Beautiful views!

There was nothing to dislike (although we did find out we missed a couple of whales in the bay by a couple of hours). It was absolutely beautiful. Must see!

It's beautiful. Everyone should have the opportunity to see such a wonderful place. When we went the water was like glass. We would have willingly spent even more time on the water than we already did. Stunning beauty.

Wild and rugged scenery, anchored by the charming town of Seward. Great walks and well marked trails.

My family and I rented an RV in Anchorage for a two week adventure around Alaska. One of our stops was Seward and we stayed at a campground right on Resurrection Bay. Our camp site was literately 10 feet from the bay. Nice views of wild life including bald eagles.

What an adventure. We saw so many whales we had to leave one pod to see another!. Glorious sunny warm day. One humpback whale seem to be sunning herself in the nice weather. She rolled and waved and kicked to our happy group. Took a day cruise with lunch from the docks in Seward. Great time
