“Picturesque Locale, Small Town Flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Seward's Boat Harbor is a beautiful location. It is a nice place to take a stroll or hop on a wildlife cruise. Fishing Charters are available and the Halibut is plentiful out in the ocean. I caught my limit all 5 times I went out. The mountains and sea are gorgeous. Exit Glacier is just a short drive out of town.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Such a great place to relax at in the late afternoon, watch the boats come in, take a nice leisurely walk. It's a great atmosphere.

“Nice Place to Browse around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We enjoyed seeing the huge fish that were being cleaned just behind Major Marine Tours. Some of the fish were downright scary looking! We also enjoyed walking along the harbor, looking at the boats, shopping at Kenai Fjords Tours (reasonable), and just hanging out. The place had a good vibe to it, and you could wander around, buying freshly caught fish, or just trading stories with the other tourists. There were plenty of places to eat; however, we didn't try any of them.

“nothing fancy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Not much to say about it. It was like every other boat harbor. This is where everything was happening.

“Right outside our hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

One of our favorite parts of our trip was walking the docks in the boat harbor! My 3 young kids loved it! There was a lot going on for them to look at - a cruise ship was anchored within view of the harbor, there were people with wheel barrels full of their catch of the day, people cleaning their catches, jellyfish and other animals to see in the water, a spectacular mountain view! We just couldn't get enough.
