Seward Glacier Tours, Resurrection Bay Scenic Tour and Kenai Fjords Tours
Resurrection Bay Wildlife/Scenic Tour
We will depart Seward and travel toward Caine’s Head. During World War II this was known as Fort McGilvray. When crossing Resurrection Bay we will drive by the “Iron Doors”. This was a position where troops could see across the bay at its narrowest point at night. The name “Iron Doors” was derived from its rusty looks today. Traveling through Eldorado Narrows, you will head to Cape Resurrection inhabited by a developed bird Colony and the occasional Mountain Goat. Located Near the Cape is Barnwell Island. This Island was another strategic piece of land used by the US Army during World War II. You will be able to observe the bunkers still intact on top of the Island. We’ll make our way to Cheval Island, then Pony Cove, and you will have magnificent views of Bear Glacier along the way. This trip is available from June 1 to August 30. We travel a distance of 60 to 75 miles round trip. The total excursion takes about 3 to 5 hours.
