Resurrection Bay Tours

By: By Christine Trang

Renown Tours, the Alaska SeaLife Center and Holiday Inn Express Seward Harbor are offering a new, overnight tour in Seward.


With the purchase of the Spring Fever package, travelers will enjoy a four-hour whale watching cruise, complete with binoculars and a snack lunch. The tour route through Resurrection Bay — approximately 60 miles round-trip — is fully narrated by the cruise’s captain and crew members. Clients can spot sea lions, seals, bald eagles and puffins along the way.


The Spring Fever promotion also includes admission for a self-guided tour to the Alaska Sealife Center — a marine science facility that combines both research and education — and an overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express Seward Harbor, Seward’s newest hotel.


The Spring Fever package costs $99 per person and is based on double occupancy. Tours are offered from April 4 through May 15.


Because the weather is unpredictable in Alaska’s coastal region, Renown Tours suggests dressing in layers, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing light rainwear or extra clothing.
