We have enjoyed, many times, watching boats or taking a cruise from this harbor. The scenery surrounding the harbor is wonderful, makes you want to stay longer. Watching sea otters and fishermen bringing in their catch is entertaining. We’ve taken large boat tours, small boat...More

This is ajwYs a stop in Seward. There was a slight layer of ice firming in the water. Several boats were out of they’re slips, it was very quiet and serene, good plaice to watch the sea otters.

Nice photo stop to see all the local boats, big and small. Just outside the harbour park the cruise ships. Here is also the starting point for the boat tours. There is as well many cafes, and restaurants.

Seward seems a bit past it's peak compared to let's say Homer but they're reviving the new docking area with shops. It's a bit too plastic for me. Old Seward's nice; scenery is still spectacular and there are restaurants and shops enough for a day's...More

There are plenty of shops to wander through whilst waiting for your cruise boat. The area surrounding the boat harbour is spectacular - snow on the mountain tops even in July. A very clean and safe area to wander about.

Our 35th Anniversary and a fishing 🎣 trip was exactly what we needed! We 🐠 like it was still our First! Had Just as much fun if not more. We love the Snagging Hole in Seward almost as much as the one in Homer.

Sorry not sure but I think one operator said that it was free to Mainland USA. Cost of fishing charter is very high compared to Australian priced. Cost was approx USD $400 for about 8 hours.
