Just what I was looking for in an Alaskan harbor experience. The harbor adjoined our hotel and I spent a good deal of time viewing all of the boats. A cruise ship was docked when we arrived and I couldn't believe how big it was. We strolled along the harbor on our walk back from town in the evening and... More

Pretty harbor but essentially a fishing/functional harbor and a single larger dock for the cruise ships. Interesting though to go to the fish weighing station and look at the fisherman's catch when they return. The young fisherman we met was very outgoing and let us watch him filet his catch right on the dock-among them a 143 lb halibut!

Visit the Sealife Center, then walk next door and have lunch at Zudy's and then go up the street for some wonderful shopping!

Great drive down south from anchorage. You will pass beautiful Kenai peninsula which is popular for canoeing. Seward is a small settlement with beautiful scenery and you can walk down the river/lake and see amazing sea-otters who will take your breath away.

Place is really nice for everyone to get a closer up view of wildlife from the area, seals, otter, sea lions and lots of birds.

It does not cost a penny to walk along the large (4 city blocks) Seward Boat Harbor. The best time of day is around 4:30p to 5:30p, when all of the fishing charters come back to the Harbor to view, weight, and fillet their catches of the day. Everything from halibut, rockfish, lingcod to salmon. Fish of all sizes and... More

After a very filling dinner, we decided to take a walk along the boat harbor. We enjoyed looking at all of the different types of boats and talking to some of the local fishermen to ask about their days catch. Very relaxing.

My husband suggested we drive down to the boat harbor after dinner and look at the view. It was beautiful and we couldn't believe we saw otters floating by the moored boats. Very nice.
