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.

  • This place is just amazing. Had a kayaking experience. Plan a rail trip too when in Alaska. Alaska railroad is enjoyable journey. I had been on this rail from Anchorage to Seward. Most of the road goes parallel with the bay. However, there are some places at the back of mountain where only the train goes. So, no matter which means you choose, you are gonna enjoy this ride
  • Good Place to fish and catch some awesome views!

  • Fantastic wildlife and awesome glaciers!
