A lovely place to see. A picture opportunity everywhere you turn. It is hard to imagine it was discovered by chance.

Amazing views of glaciers, and wildlife galore. We saw several humpback whales, sea lions, and more birds than you can imagine. The history of the bay is also interesting. I would recommend visiting here to get a good sampling of Alaska in one place.

Words are not adequate to describe the sheer beauty of the Bay. Keep an eye out for bald eagles! Follow the main road through Seward, past the waterfall, to the beach for a spectacular view.

Whales, sea otters, Majestic mountain vistas and cascading waterfalls, hundreds of seals both sunning on the rocks and floating on icebergs...a visit to Resurrection Bay offers the most diverse sampling of coastal Alaskan wildlife anywhere in the state. No visit to Alaska should ever sacrifice an excursion to Resurrection Bay. If you are on a tour boat, you will get... More

Truly wonderful - maybe untouched by mankind; this is the access point for Hubbard Glacier which is virtually unapproachable other than by sea or air. Hubbard was one of the great highlights of our Alaskan journey - don't miss this. The scene is amazing and the sounds of the ice shifting and breaking really demonstrate the awesome power of nature.... More

Surrounded by mountains on the sides. The mouth of the bay shrouded with clouds and neatly closed with more mountains. Must see.
