We spent a lot of time walking around the harbor area, eating ice cream, drinking coffee, watching the fishermen returning and cleaning the fish they caught, and just taking in the breathtaking views. Seward in general is quite possibly the most beautiful place on earth, at least in my humble opinion.

Where do you get to see enough water to sail and snow capped mountains? And such beautiful mountains! This place is very scenic and beautiful.

Before taking a whale watching cruise we walked around the harbor. It was late afternoon so a lot of boats were returning both commercial and private. We loved watching the fish being brought in and were in awe of some of the sizes! Along with the boats coming in sea otters also came close to grab scraps and they are... More

Seaward Harbour is a lovely working harbour with a beautiful mountain back drop. We had a strolled around before hopping on our wildlife cruise. Make sure you visit "The Fish House" a very interesting shop which sells anything you would ever need.

A good way to spend an afternoon just watching cruise boats heading out into Resurrection Bay, fishermen bring in their catch and cleaning it, shopping or just people watching along the boardwalk. Decent restaurants and great photo ops.

Very small location, but, it was indeed gorgeous. Took a half day wildlife cruise and stayed in Seward overnight. Had a chance to drive around a bit after the cruise. Amazing views and absolutely beautiful.

We loved just walking along the harbor and looking at the ships and smaller boats. Our day cruise was easily accessible here, and there were several places to eat. We ate a Rays Waterfront which is at the Harbor.

If you have a spare hour or so, just take a walk around this harbor! We walked around the harbor in the morning when boats were already coming in with their catches. Watched these men filet huge halibut and rock fish is seconds. Pretty impressive sight to behold. There were a bunch of eagles hoping to grab a free meal... More
