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 buffet of wild Alaskan salmon and prime rib, served with vegetables, salad and bread rolls. 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 4.5-hour Resurrection Bay wildlife cruise ends back at Seward harbor.

Nice half-day Tour

We did the Whale Watch and Fox Island buffet lunch. So many of these tours are similar, but Kenai Tours was the one we were on. We saw a few whales and the tour guide was very informative and entertaining. There are plenty of great...More

Great way to spend a day

My only regret about booking this tour is not doing a longer tour on the bay. It left us wanting more when we returned to the dock. We selected the 4.5 hour cruise with lunch. The lunch was alright, but enjoyable. There are refreshments for...More
