We traveled out from this harbor to see the bay and Holgate Glacier. It's an interesting place to visit if you like looking at a wide range of boats.

If you want to see the Charter Boats come in and see their catch this is the place to be. The Boat Harbor area has a lot of shopping and eateries, It is several blocks from the "Old" Seward downtown. All of the Kenai Fjords depart from here.

Make sure to go check out the catches of the day during the summer around 5 pm. Lots of hustling and bustle. Beautiful scenery all around, nice boats, easy access.

The scenery in all directions is quite impressive. While in Seward for either sightseeing, a cruise or fishing charter, you must walk though the boats in the Marina or arrange to be there around 5-6 PM when the charters come in and the boats unload their catch for photography

Very touristy and the shops sell t-shirts and more of the same. Prices for local souvenirs incredibly high! The harbour area itself is rammed with boats and a pleasant place to sit and watch.

My son and I had a good time wandering around the docks looking at all of the fishing boats, tour boats and pleasure boats. It was a beautiful clear morning and we even saw some small moon jellyfish and a rust colored large jelly fish swimming around the docks. It was nice that we had access to lots of docks.

The harbor does have some sea life, but it is really a good place to start a tour, but not to really tour itself. There are some good places to eat nearby, but almost everything is nearby.

We were on a Royal Caribbean cruise. We had to fly to Anchorage then take either a bus or the train to Seward where we were to get the ship. It was a 5 hour trip, so I opted for the train so we could get up and walk around. This could not have been any better. Each car had... More

We walked along the boardwalk, killing time until our dinner reservation and saw a commercial fishing boat come into dock. They quickly offloaded the largest pile of freshly caught halibut we had ever seen and a team of fish cleaners set about gutting, cleaning and filleting the catch there on the docks. What a sight! We watched which restaurants they... More

Talk about not being able to beat the view! WOW! This is a gorgeous boat harbor with glaciers in the background. Alaska is pretty amazing!
