Resurrection Bay

Located on the on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, Resurrection Bay is a perfect example of pristine Alaskan wilderness. Littered with glistening glaciers, majestic fjords, secluded coves and small islands set against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, otherworldly rock formations and dramatic fog, this is a haven for those who enjoy striking landscapes. Not only is Resurrection Bay beautiful, it’s also filled with opportunities for outdoors recreation.

Those interested in bird-watching and wildlife spotting should be on the lookout for puffins, bald eagles, Dall's Porpoises, Stellar Sea Lions, orca and Humpback Whales, harbor seals and sea otters. Additionally, the waters are popular for kayaking, sailing and flightseeing. And because Resurrection Bay never freezes, the waters are easily navigable for tours.

There are a few specific natural attraction highlights when visiting Resurrection Bay. While Bear Glacier is an enormous glacier that appears to have “racing stripes” sliding into the water, Fox Island is a beautiful and remote island popular for its secluded beachfront cabins and fresh seafood. Additionally, Cape Resurrection is filled with scenic inlets and is a popular spot with photographers.

Tip: Bring a coat even in the summer, as Resurrection Bay can get very cold.
