  • Clean and well kept up. Small boat harbor. Otters will show up and swim and play among the boats. Restaurants and gift shops. There is the "Center" free parking lot located here with a 2 hour limit. T...  more »

  • The boat harbor is a nice place to walk. The paths are nicely maintained and very clean. It's a free chance to catch a glimpse of marine life from the harbor.  more »

  • Unbelievably scenic harbor. Great location to take in the sights, grab a meal, go to an adjacent park, or visit the Kanai Fjords National Park Visitor Center. All are in walking distance.
  • Beautiful landscape, jellyfish in the water along with otters and if your lucky a harbor seal.
  • Beautiful setting and walking distance to most everything.
  • Nice to salon along the harbor and see all the boats with the mountains in the background.
  • It's difficult to rate a boat harbor, but this had our cruise ship so we loved it! If you are getting on a cruise, this is where you board. And go through customs. On most tours your luggage will already be in the queue to go on board. Just really need your passport to go through here. If you are beginning the land portion of your tour, this is where you will probably board a bus. Again, the tour company should handle your luggage. Some tours drive you from Anchorage directly to the cruise ship. Others take you one or two days early. If you go early, you probably have signed (or will signed up) up for an optional cruise or whale watching tour. Our lodge did not have any food concessions so we went into Seward to eat. There are several nice places downtown to eat that are open when the ship(s) are in port. Our choices ran us about $10 per meal, per person, unless you share. Some tours arriving will have you board a bus and head north right then. But others will keep you in a hotel or lodge a day or two for the same optional tours. We walked all over the town. The city runs a free shuttle bus which will come in handy as it goes everywhere you might want or need to go (laundry for example). Even stops at the Catholic Church so you won't miss Mass. If you are not Catholic you won't care, but the ships usually will all have a priest who performs Mass daily. Find him, and sit yourself next to him at any of the formal meals. Then just enjoy listening, as these men travel more than most anyone else. They can be a lot of fun, but also have a wealth of information about each stop. We sat next to one and learned so much that isn't in any of the booklets! Find the man and go get educated! The boat harbor has the most eating, drinking, and 'stuff' businesses in Seward. Several ones you've never heard of that pack in crowds and provide excellent sea food. Think Halibut! Trinkets and tees are available with lots of typical Alaska wordage. Have a good camera? For shots across the harbour I used a 55-250mm on my Canon and all shots were perfect. In town I used an 18-135mm and got pretty much anything I was aiming at. We were there the third weekend in July. Nice weather, not to cold nor too warm. We wore sweaters in the am. Finally, if you are sailing out, you should check in and get your room first, then eat for free on the ship second, then take the free shuttle anywhere you want to go third. The more you plan ahead the more fun you will have.
