  • Seward Alaska is a beautiful port destination Not only you can find all kinds of delicious places to eat and beautiful scenery but also a ton of tours and activities that only Alaska has to offer  more »
  • Very beautiful place. We stopped here to pick up our cruise ship, and the beauty of the place is in nature with numerous boats of all sizes are anchored. There are benches where you can sit, relax and just enjoy the scenery.

  • 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.
  • 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.
