Such a beautiful bay. We saw Orcas, humpbacks, porpoise, sea lions and various species of birds. The snow capped mountains surround you. We really enjoyed this bay! It is definitely something you should plan to see when going to Alaska.

Only all-year ice-free harbor in south-central AK, where the Ididarod started as well as the Alaska railroad to Anchorage.

Took the all-day boat that serves lunch. It was a great tour - saw calving glaciers, puffins, whales, seals, puffins and other birds and much more. Had bad weather, hard rain and cold, so bring warm coats, hats, gloves. I bought seasick pills but didn't need them. Others got sick and the crew was very helpful for them. Lunch is... More

On a tour of the bay, we saw puffins, sea lions, eagles nest, mountain goats and dolphins. The tour guide was knowledgable and made everything interesting.

Take a walk around the beach and enjoy the day. The place is perfect for just taking a stroll around and seeing what the town is really about. The water is what makes seward so remarkable.

Got to travel around Resurrection Bay on a wildlife sightseeing tour and it was absolutely amazing. The wildlife was great. We saw humpback whales, Orca Whales, Porpoises, Sea Lions, Sea otters, and Bald eagles. Highly recommend seeing the bay somehow while you are there.

The waterfront is a very peaceful place, especially in the winter before the tourists come in. Bundle up and go for a walk and listen to the waves and the waterfowl. You might even catch a peek of some sea life other than the birds.

Excellent views and wild life too! Plus if you're in Seward, you really can't miss it! We were lucky to see some sea otters playing around in the bay!
