RESURRECTION BAY KAYAKING: Lowell Point State Recreation Area to Tonsina Point

Experience the beauty of Seward's Resurrection Bay with its abundant marine life and beautiful mountain glacier vistas on this sea kayaking excursion from Lowell Point. On this trip we commonly encounter sea otters, sea birds, harbor seals, bald eagles and leaping salmon. In late summer may land our kayaks to take a short walk along Tonsina Creek, an active salmon spawning stream.
