Seward Shore Excursion: Kenai Fjords and Resurrection Bay Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Select tour language
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the Seward Small Boat Harbor for morning or early afternoon check-in for your cruise.

    As you approach the end of Resurrection Bay, visit Cape Resurrection which shelters both Steller sea lions and thousands of nesting seabirds. Enjoy superb photo ops as your captain pulls in close to the seabird rookeries and sea lion colonies.

    Along the route look for wildlife such as whales, Dall’s porpoises, sea otters, eagles, mountain goats, and seabirds. If the skies are cleas, several alpine glaciers can be seen high in the mountains surrounding Resurrection Bay. You may even glimpse the largest glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park, Bear Glacier.

    Head back to the harbor where your tour ends after 3.5 hours.

    The captain did a great job but unfortunately not much to see which made it very boring. Sea otters and sea lions and seals which are great unless you’re from the Pacific Northwest and they are everywhere. Not their fault that no real activity but maybe break up the trip more.
