The water here is very clear and you can do some tide pooling along the edges. The reflection of the mountains off the water is very beautiful. You get a great view of the bay from an observation deck in the aquatic center. There's also a park with public parking next to the aquatic center that gives you access to... More

We took a boat tour with Major Marine Tours. They took us out on Resurrection Bay and it was the most beautiful sight I've ever seen. The water is so blue and it was very quiet and peaceful when I went out. If you are in Seward, try to get out on the water! You won't regret it!

We went on whale watching trip with Major Marine Tours and were not disappointed. There were two early season humpback whales observed and possibly a third. Even though it is early the Bay was still very beautiful and restful to just look and study as we cruised the waters of Resurrection Bay.

Very windy but with the drive for the Alaska Sealife Center. The town of Seward is small and friendly, with quaint local shops, and the mountain views are endless.

Besides being a magnificent place, it is a good spot to see whales, we saw many killer whales over there.

We stopped at Fox Island for a lunch of Alaskan Salmon and King Crab Legs. Buffet style and large numbers pouring off boats, but the staff work to time it well and keep the food fresh. The food was okay, but the views of Resurrection Bay, the marine wildlife, and everything Alaska is just gorgeous. The bay is a beautiful... More

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.
