Resurrection Bay Small Boat Sightseeing Tour

Quick Details


Seward Winter Tours of Resurrection Bay!

Leaving daily from the Seward small boat harbor!  We meet at 10:45 AM at the Harbor 360 Hotel lobby to board the Fox Willie.   Departing by 11AM to tour along the Eastern side of Resurrection Bay, keeping eyes out for Orcas and other whales, Dall’s Porpoise, sea otters, Stellar’s sea lions, harbor seals, river otters and more! Our captains and deckhands will point out the natural and man-made sights, and weather permitting, we will travel about 20 miles toward Cape Resurrection and El Dorado Narrows, viewing Thumb Cove, Humpy Cove, Kayaker’s Cove and Fox Island Spit along the way.  Often being afforded a glimpse of Bear Glacier along the way!

Traveling back down the west side of the bay to view the remains of Fort McGilvray at Caines Head, a remnant of the Second World War,  and some of the dynamic natural features of our fjords.  Our round trip may include stops at area beaches at the captain’s discretion- have a keen eye to spend a few minutes doing some Alaskan beach combing? Mention it to the crew when you board, we may be able to land and let you explore for a short while or photo opportunity as our boat is designed to land and load from the shoreline.

Since this boat specializes in small groups, if you have something you want to see or are curious about something on the horizon, just ask!  We are happy to go explore with you, weather and group permitting!  The itinerary of these trips is fluid and adaptable to any requests your group may have.  Let us know!

About the Boat

The Fox Willie is a 36′ x 13.5′ custom built aluminum catamaran and landing craft with seating for 16 passengers and up to 4 crew members. She proudly features a landing gate on the bow, which allows crew to walk on and off right from the beach, and a full walk through and walk around cabin. It has a marine head, accessed from the port stern quarter, built in fish boxes, below decks storage for excess gear and diesel forced air heater. A fish cleaning table/bait station with saltwater wash down sits across the aft portion of the vessel. She can carry kayaks on top of the house – and when needed to perform as a water taxi platform exclusively – along both sides of the house. Enough storage to pack 6 doubles on deck and more above, she can carry enough kayaks for each passenger when required.
