Some of the best views in Alaska. If you are a tourist, this is an absolute must. Best views in Seward and easily top 5 in all of Alaska.

You don't want to miss the scenic beauty of Resurrection Bay! It boasts whales to salmon and everything in between. Bald Eagles fly uninhibited all over the bay. The water fall is stunning!

Absolutely gorgeous! Visited in October so the weather was a bit windy and chilly. Walkable town with amazing views from city parks. We saw seals and sea otters in the harbor. Marine tours available during the tourist season.

My feeling is that the 6 hour tour is superior to the Resurrection Bay tour, you'll travel partially into the Park on the 6 hour. NCL uses Kenai Fjords Tours for their shore excursion vendor

Great boat ride that was comfortable, entertaining, and a real treat. The captain was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the history of the area. The crew was friendly and the boat was very clean. Both young and old enjoyed this excursion.

Beautiful view, sorry we missed the puffins but still a nice view. Next time we will go in September so we can catch a boat out to some of the islands/ inlets. Not a whole lot to do but the scenery is very nice and if you have kids the playground looks great. Like the history of the Santa Ana... More

Drove south of town then hiked to a beach area. Easy but scenic trail. Are the end of salmon run, saw many dead ones in the streams. This drew the bald eagles though.
