This is a must see while in Seward. The wildlife was absolutely incredible! Take a ferry tour or kayak, but get out on the water and enjoy.

For us this was an add on to pad out a wildlfe and whale watching trip. The time we spent in the bay was more successful that the whale watching part. The whole bay is beautiful and the boats get you up reallc lose to the face of the galcier.

It has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. The mountains and glaciers, along with all the wildlife makes it a must see if you are in this neck of the woods. We sailed it on a boat tour and I couldn't bring myself to look away because I didn't want to miss a thing!

Had no idea this would be the absolute best part of our Alaska trip. We drove from Anchorage and from Wasilla on down, saw more wildlife, more close-up mountains, more points of interest to stop along the way than we had north of there.

We stayed by the water in our rented motorhome and found it to be very scenic and relaxing. Lots of sea otters to watch with our binocs. No other critters aside from birds seen.

I highly recommend the Kenai Ford Wildlife boat trip. Resurrection Bay and surrounding waters are filled with wildlife, narrated by a Park Ranger. A very worthwhile excursion from Seward.
