The bay offers a lot of options to just about anyone's level. The boats are the main attraction just shop on line before going to find out which one does exactly what you want to do. I took my family on a 9 hour glacier tour on a smaller boat and it turned out great!

We have spent four days here so have seen the bay in rain & mist & also in glorious sunshine, it is an amazing sight in any weather. To really appreciate the bay fully you need to go out on a boat as Resurrection Bay is the gateway to the Kenai Fjords National Park. It is a huge area and... More

Small boat harbor and commercial boat harbor is a gateway to the Kenai National Park. Great views and plenty of nice places to take walks, see boats and eat lunch.

A must see bucket list item. Absolutely stunning. The drive from Anchorage is well worth it with amazing views and opportunities for animal viewing.

Seward Alaska has so much to offer both in the sea and on land. Well worth a couple of days but doable in one long day. I highly recommend a wildlife cruise from Resurrection Bay. Just breathtaking and you are sure to see an abundance of sea life including spouting whales, dolphins, otters, seals and the like. Also many sea... More

We had a wonderful time-even in the rain-getting to know our fellow travelers and kayaking/kayak fishing at Kayakers Cove. The cabins were rustic but clean and comfortable (and warm!), the lodge was well-equipped and very comfortable, the hiking was really great, and of course the kayaking and fishing were awesome!.

Spent 3 days fishing from Seward - each day brought different views from the boat as we headed to the ocean. Absolutely beautiful - a must see!
