Caines Head


Get acquainted with Resurrection Bay and explore the best of the bay in Seward, Alaska. Caines Head majestically marks the end of Resurrection Bay and the beginning of the Gulf of Alaska. Because of its prime location, Caines Head played a major part in protecting Seward and the rest of the bay from attacks in WWII. Feel the history as you explore the barracks of Fort McGilvray, take in the picture-perfect birds-eye views of the bay, and experience the best of Resurrection Bay.


Departing from Lowell Point Recreation Area, we paddle south along the coastline toward the mouth of the Bay. Keep an eye out for fun loving otters, salmon-hunting eagles, and the occasional whale or elusive mountain goats.  Along the way, enjoy the scenic view of Godwin Glacier on the eastern side of the bay. We land on the North Beach of Caines Head State Park, former site of the Fort McGilvray Boat Dock. Stretch out as we hike up to Fort McGilvray, where a post card perfect view overlooks Cape Resurrection. Take a load off and enjoy the view as you eat lunch, snacks, and re-hydrate! The journey continues as we head back to Lowell Point.
