Resurrection Bay is the location of Caines Head, at the summit of which Fort McGilvray is situated, 650 feet (198 meters) above sea level. It is called the "gateway to the Kenai Fjords" as many water taxis, kayak tours, anglers, and recreational boaters use the bay to access nearby Kenai Fjords National Park. Several parks are located in and around the bay. Kenai Fjords National Park is primarily accessed by boat from Seward.

There is very good chance to see the six types of whales (fin, gray, humpback, minke and Orca whales) roaming the waters of Resurrection Bay.

As we approach the end of Resurrection Bay we will visit Cape Resurrection, home to both Steller sea lions and thousands of nesting seabirds including puffins, kittiwakes, and cormorants. The captain will stop the boat close to the sea lion colonies and seabird rookeries, providing excellent photo opportunities. Along the route you will have the chance to see abundant wildlife such as whales, sea otters, Dall's porpoises, and many types of seabirds. As we cruise along the rugged coastline, keep an eye out for mountain goats, bald eagles, and bears.
