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!

First time here and the scenery is stunning. Amenities in winter are passable. We drive around by car to explore and was not disappointed.

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!
