One of our favorite things to do while relaxing at Orca Island Cabins is watching for wildlife. Travelers flock to Resurrection Bay from all corners of the world to see its beautiful scenery and catch a glimpse of the local fauna. There’s plenty of sea life to be found – even from a short stroll around the Seward boat harbor – but at our cabins, you’re right in the middle of nature. We are away from the hustle and bustle of a busy summer town and in another world of wildlife viewing opportunities – whether its from the water, one of our luxury decks overlooking the cove or on your cruise to or from the island. Here’s a checklist of some of our favorite local critters (from the land and sea) to watch for while you’re here:

  • Orca whale
  • Dall’s porpoise
  • Harbor seal
  • Harbor porpoise
  • Steller sea lion
  • Sea otter
  • River otter
  • Salmon
  • Humpback whale
  • Mountain goat
  • Black bear
  • Bald eagle
  • A variety of seabirds

Whether you’re a birdwatcher, a whale watcher or just a general wildlife enthusiast, we can’t wait to help you check all these sightings off your list.
