Create an itinerary including Resurrection Bay
Tour Resurrection Bay, a haven for marine wildlife framed by rugged cliff walls. Birdwatchers will delight in spying colorfully beaked puffins, cliff-breeding fulmars, and black-and-white murres colonies. Take a boat tour of the bay from Seward for a chance to see leaping orcas, humpback whales, seals, sea otters, and sea lions. Visit Fox Island and Bear glacier for a chance to see black bears, wolves, and coyotes in their natural environment. Fish for salmon or take a hike in the Caines Head State Recreation Area for expansive views of the bay. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Resurrection Bay by using our Seward journey planning website.
