“Silver salmon Derby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

The harbor was petty happening in the late afternoon early evenings with all of the fisherman coming in to weigh in. We were there during the 10 day Silver Salmon Derby, so my husband had a great time seeing all the big fish they caught. My 2 year old had a great time too seeing all of the fish.

“A great place to see the catch of the day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

A beautiful picturesque boardwalk where you can view all the local boats, catch a sightseeing tour or just walk around for the tranquility. The fresh catch of the day is brought in and you can get a great view of the local halibut. I highly recommend Seward, AK boat harbor to anyone who visits Alaska.

“Quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

My husband loves boats, so he especially loved visiting the boat harbor. We walked around and looked at all the boats. If you really love boat harbors, make sure you make it out to Homer Small Boat Harbor as well. If you are on the Kenai Peninsula, you should head out to Homer anyway!

“Looking At Boats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is a great harbor for walking the docks and looking at the many different kinds of boats kept there. There are both private and commercial there and if you enjoy boats this is a relaxing way to enjoy the local sights.

“Constant activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our hotel looked out across the boat harbour, so we could enjoy the comings and goings. This is a base for deep sea fishing, and you can go and admire the enormous fish which have been caught, and watch them being gutted and filleted if you are not squeamish! If you are bringing home a catch, it is possible to have it processed, packaged, deep frozen and shipped home, all within a few yards! You can walk the boardwalks amongst the boats with no restriction.
