There are plenty of shops to wander through whilst waiting for your cruise boat. The area surrounding the boat harbour is spectacular - snow on the mountain tops even in July. A very clean and safe area to wander about.

Our 35th Anniversary and a fishing 🎣 trip was exactly what we needed! We 🐠 like it was still our First! Had Just as much fun if not more. We love the Snagging Hole in Seward almost as much as the one in Homer.

The small boat harbor provides boardwalks along the shore, and down into the marina, so you can view the fishing and tour boats up close. Fishing charters are plentiful, and there's a viewing area for you to see the day's catch, and watch them clean...More

The town of Seward is small, but beautiful with great places to eat and plenty of shops. There is on grocery store in town, but even in the grocery store has souvenirs for sale. We found these to be cheaper than the gift shop.

Very cool spot, at around 5-6 pm the fishermen would bring in their massive salmon and halibut catches for the day and would fillet the fresh fish right in front of you. There's often sea otters hanging around eating the scraps of the fish as...More

Sorry not sure but I think one operator said that it was free to Mainland USA. Cost of fishing charter is very high compared to Australian priced. Cost was approx USD $400 for about 8 hours.
