It is quite spectacular, whatever the weather........snow capped mountains rising up all around the bay, scenery which is quite dramatic whether under clear blue or angry grey black skies.

My wife and I went out on Resurrection Bay with a friend, in his boat. The views were absolutely stunning! Our objective was to catch some fish, but we were often distracted by the whales, sea lions, and porpoises.

This beautiful bay is surrounded by mountains and full of sealife. Start your visit at the harbor town of Seward where you can enjoy the view from Waterfront Park and learn about the bay and its inhabitants at the Sealife Center. At the harbor, you can book a guided boat tour or a kayaking adventure. We took a boat tour... More

The views are amazing from shore and even better if you can get out on a boat (fishing charter or wildlife viewing tour). Easy to spot wildlife like orcas, otters, sea lions, eagles, puffins... Lush, rugged mountains right up to the water. Cliffs teeming with birds. Eagles perched up high. Outstanding!!

This whole area of Alaska is a mix of the wild and the beautiful. We had a full day trip saw many wildlife sightings and even a whale breeching.

We were able to visit resurrection bay by boat from Seward AK. We saw so much wildlife and the overall views are amazing. It's definitely worth the time and money to get out and see the bay from the water. You will come back with memories to never forget.

There is no place on earth that is more beautiful. We saw sea otters, a whale and puffins and beautiful scenery. We also saw some kayakers along the route. Our trip was part of an all day fishing trip. I would have liked to have gotten closer to the islands. Almost forgot to mention seeing the stunning glacier.
