Place where we met the bus after SeaLife Center. Just a boat harbor. Nothing exciting. There were a couple restaurants nearby.

We were visiting Seaward on a cruise ship - but are not found of "group excursions", so we headed down to the local dock. We walked around and chatted with the locals in the hopes of getting a fisherman to take us out for the day for bear, eagle and other wildlife viewing. Did meet one fellow who was willing... More

Enjoyed a nice walk on the boat docks after dinner. Wonderful way to unwind before heading off to bed. Boats range in size and style with a few different docks to walk down.

It a place to park boats...I wouldn't call it an attraction.. We did walk down a few piers to read the names of them. It took about 15 mins. I considered it something different for the kids to see.

The boat harbor lies in a beautiful location. The mountains surrounding it make for awesome photo ops. The harbor itself had super cool looking jellyfish which my kids loved. It is a nice place.

Enjoyed the harbor and sightseeing...(Seward is one of Alaska's oldest cities and the Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park.) If you are a baker, buy some of the Alaskan sourdough starter ! It comes in powder form and can be "brought to life" at home!

Yes, the harbor and "downtown" Seward are interesting and fun and the free shuttle bus helps you get around. It's supposed to run every 15 min from the cruise port and railway station to downtown, but sometimes you wait for 30 min or more. And if you go downtown, BE SURE to ask the driver where the stops are for... More

The Seward Boat Harbor adds ambience to a great dinner. I don't ever want a boat; however, I enjoy harbors all over the U.S. What's not to like?
