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.

Awesome trip! First time on a cruise like this and it was amazing. Saw a bunch of Wildlife and the views were undescribable. The crew was helpful and the captain was knowledgeable...providing interesting facts about everything we saw. The lunch that was provided was delicious and filling. I would totally recommend and do it again. Great for all ages.
A super day on Resurrection Bay

The boat tour was excellent . The captain was very knowledgeable and the crew were very welcoming. We were able to view a variety of Alaskan wildlife including a humpback whale! Fox Island was beautiful ! The lunch was fair. Basic, the fish was a little dry. All in all the trip was wonderful !
A must do!

You owe me a refund of $115, I was charged for 9 people and we had 8, and the counter person made such a mess out of things despite the fact that I had all of the passengers names and payment made that I printed out. She wouldn't even look at it, instead stared in confusion at her computer and made a mess until some young, wonderful person stepped in that knew what to do, said it was OK! But I have not been refunded. Lori Christiansen, June 20th, 2021. I also paid for Willie Vondorps group of 4, no problem. Please refund me, at the very least, for the incompetence.
Highly Recommended

The boat was great. The captain was knowledgeable and funny. But the food made at the lodge made everyone sick.
Orcas and Humpback in the same spot.

The whales.The crew from Captain to deck hands. The Captain she had remarkable boat handling skills brought us up close to wildlife. They all went above expectations for safety, knowledge, kindness and fun.
