Resurrection Bay is a very large expanse of water with views of vistas and glaciers. Many species of marine life can be seen in the bay, including water fowl.

This was close to our hotel at exit glacier and menu looked good. $20 for breakfast per person. Typical buffet selections, but can order off menu also, which I would do next time.
