Boat harbour with an almost free (USD$1) bus all around downtown Seward.

We only had a minimum time to spend in Seward and explored the harbor area which was very practical and sensible to admit cruise ships and their passengers

Beautiful harbour, lots of sea otters which are very comical little characters, could watch them for hours. The boat harbour is easily accessible and an interesting place to wander around.

Seems like the cruise ships dock on one side of this marina and on the other side (a 15 minute flat walk) is where all of the tourist shops and operaters work from. All the whale watching boats seem to leave from in the marina or as they call it Small Boat Harbour.

It's basically the heart of Seward with little tourist shops up and down the harbor. There are some pretty big tour boats here and we got to see a few seals playing along the docks. Nice picturesque area that screams you're in Alaska.

A lovely way to start or end the day is taking a stroll on the many docks of the Seward Boat Harbor. My husband and I often laugh at the names given to the various boats, look over the edge to see the jelly fish and even watch the eagles and otters above and on the water. Not to be... More

Sit on a bench & relax or stroll along the waterfront. It's not that big but it was always busy. Fishing boats, tour boats, cruise ships, there was always something coming in or going out.

A lovely busy harbor in a terrific little town in Alaska. The marina is really busy with a lot of boats, fishermen, cruises and tourists. It is fun to see the fishermen (and women!) bring in their catch and cleaning their fish at the end of the day. The harbor has also excellent restaurants, nice little stores and a terrific... More

The boat harbor is a nice place for a walk. Besides seeing the boats, you will see the fish coming to land, being exposed for photos, and being prepared for packing. There you will find a few shops and several restaurants.

Didn't have a boat here, but took two tours from the docks and walked along the docks to take pictures. Great boat watching and sea otter viewing, and nice that the docks are so accessible (where we live, the entrances are all locked).
