  • I have not been all around the world but I think that the scenery that you see from the Seward Boat Harbor has to be one of the top 25.  more »
  • Seward was our starting off point for an Alaskan cruise. We checked in to the ship early and spent some time strolling around. Very picturesque.  more »

  • If you're looking to launch your boat or watch some wildlife then the Seward Boat Harbor is a great place to visit. The Seward Boat Harbor is a great place to launch a boat or even a kayak. The boat launch is located near the Kenai Fjords National Park Visitor Center on 4th Street and the kayak launch is located at the Northeast corner of the Seward Boat Harbor. Parking is a pain, so you will need some coins or a credit card to pay for time. The Seward Boat Harbor is home to wildlife including sea otters. If the sun is bright you can see fry swimming in gigantic numbers below the catwalks. Occasionally a bald eagle will sit on a tall light pole looking for fish too. The Seward Boat Harbor is a great resource, but the sad reality is the expansion many years ago removed a significant amount of beach. The beach was a great place to snag King Salmon. While the fishing near the Seward Boat Harbor isn't the same the expansion did modernize and expand the Seward Boat Harbor capacity.
  • It's a very nice and well maintained harbor. It's nice to walk around and see the boats or grab some food and enjoy the day. You can book charters, too.
  • Boat Launch is easy to use, usually transient moorage available with gangway to parking lot.
  • Great starting point
  • 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.
