Resurrection Bay is a bay on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska, United States. Its main settlement is Seward, located at the head of the bay. It received its name from Alexandr Baranov, who was forced to retreat into the bay during a bad storm in the Gulf Of Alaska. When the storm settled it was Easter Sunday, so the bay and nearby Resurrection River were named in honor of it.
The Bay remains ice-free even in winter, making it easily navigable.The opening of the film The Hunt for Red October was filmed in Resurrection Bay, with the bay serving as a stand-in for Russia's Murmansk Fjord.
