What You Can Expect

Resurrection Bay Cruise with Fox Island

Resurrection Bay Cruise

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.

As a travel agent and former resident of AK, I was really excited to learn this was operated by Kenai Fjords, a company known for these tours. Unfortunately, our experience was one of disappointment. It started with a rude check-in person who, after running through the names of my party quickly informed me that she was missing a name. When I asked her to repeat, she rolled her eyes and rudely asked me Weren't you listening?. We were assigned to the Kenai Explorer and got to the dock early to get a good viewing position on the boat. We got a great spot and my kids were having a wonderful time and totally engaged. We stopped at Fox Island for lunch and skipping stones great rocks for skipping! but as lunch was ending we were asked to quickly proceed to the dock for a passenger count. Our boat was apparently experiencing engine trouble and we were asked to immediately collect our belongings from the Explorer and move them to a smaller boat that had arrived earlier to Fox Island. As you might imagine, the good viewing spots were already taken and my party of seven was split in different spots in the boat. Worst of all, my kids engagement dissipated as they had to jockey for position with overzealous adults. Being in the travel business for 20 years I get that issues happen but my suspicion that this was a cost-reduction exercise by consolidating two less-than-full boats was confirmed when I overhead a crew member on the new boat say we haven't gotten in trouble for this yet but passengers are getting mad. And it wasn't just my party that was inconvenienced, those on the boat prior to our arrival went from positive to several wondering whether these interlopers were going to make them late for their train back to Anchorage. Sorry KFT, yield management means managing your available seats and passenger counts PRIOR to the voyage NOT mid-trip at your customer's expense. You took a great experience and tanked it chasing a few extra .
