Took a 5-hr cruise (no, not on the Minnow with Gilligan and crew) with Major Marine Tours. Very attentive crew, and flexible enough to vary the route so we could chase whales. One whale breached multiple times...quite a highlight. Lunch was good, too. We saw puffins, eagles, porpoises, and WHALES! Hopefully you'll get a day with calm water as we... More

When visiting Seward you can not miss seeing the bay and all its natural beauty. Walking along the edge or taking a boat tour is a must. Getting great pictures is the goal and easier said than done.

An ideal place for whale watching and experiencing wildlife in Alaska. Very scenic. We were blessed to have a boat captain ~ Jessica who I have to believe is the best captain in Alaska. Made for a unique once in a lifetime experience

I did the 9-hour cruise with Kenai Fjords Tours and saw, in short, everything I had dreamed of. And more.

All over Seward you will see Resurrection Bay with its mountains and glaciers. It is a nice part of Alaska. Visit the docks and parks in Seward.

I have been to Resurrection Bay many times now and never tire of it's beauty. You see wonderful mountains, water, wildlife and catch the freshest fish. Last time I was lucky enough to watch Humpback whales bubble netting. You have to see for yourself.
