Revel in the serene beauty of the Alaskan wilderness on this 50-mile (80-km) cruise across Resurrection Bay. Make your way to Seward Small Boat Harbor and step aboard your boat that cuts through the cool waters of Resurrection Bay. If you like, enjoy a glass of beer or wine from the onboard bar (own expense) as you soak up the views.

From a comfy spot inside or on the open-air top deck, take in the jaw-dropping scenery of alpine glaciers, snowy mountains and jagged cliffs. Your landscape tableau includes Bear Glacier, one of the Alaskan coast’s premier sights. A wildlife guide on board points out whales, puffins, otters, falcons and sea otters along the way.

Reach Fox Island and follow your guide to a charming lodge, where you’ll sit down for a delicious lunch. During your meal, a National Park Ranger provides an engaging presentation of the area's natural history.

Then, enjoy some free time at a ‘skipping stone’ beach. Try your hand at bouncing pebbles across the water, or simply lap up the peace and pristine scenery.

Back on your boat, take in your final views before your 5 hour Resurrection Bay wildlife cruise ends back at Seward harbor.

Wonderful tour!
, Sep 2021
Wonderful tour! We loved seeing all the wildlife, especially the humpback whale. Our captain was really good at keeping an eye out for wildlife. She was also super knowledgeable about the area. Our favorite part though is when she steered us close to the hidden coves. We saw huge rocks sticking up out of the water. And on many of those rocks were sea lions, mountain goats and puffin. We enjoyed our stop at Fox Island also. The flat rocks there are fun to throw. All in all it was a lovely day!
Don’t miss this!

What a great day! Glaciers, whales, sea lions and a few Eagles. The boat was fun (dress warm) and the scenery was beautiful. Great crew telling us what we were looking at. Emma, the captain, had the right amount of commentary, and the right amount of quiet time. Highly recommend.
Perfect day on the bay

Kudos To Empowered Captain to Deviate

Weather on our usual route was rainy and foggy. Captain made decisions to deviate and weather after Fox Island departure was fantastic. 2 humpback whales, blue sky, and fantastic memories.
Rainy but fun cruise

We thought the captain and crew did a great job. Captain Emma gave very descriptive narration about the bay and the area. She was a very capable boat operator as well. The meal we had on Fox Island was very good. It’s always hard to serve that many people at one time, but again, the staff did a great job. The weather wasn’t great, but we were able to see some of the wildlife. Capt. Emma even tried her hardest to find a humpback whale cow and her calf. We saw some blow spray and her back, but had to give up due to rough water.
