The harbour area is quite clean. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around - as you would expect. If you are going out on a cruise bot, you will no doubt leave from here. Parking will cost you at $10 for the day, so if you are on a budget, use the free Seward shuttle to get to the... More

Our view form our hotel was amazing. The water was so blue. We could go to the dock and see what fish have been caught and we could also watch the fish being cleaned. This is a beautiful harbor.

We were at the small boat harbour on three different days for various activities. The ice cream shop was also a draw card and we did try several flavours over that time. When the fish catch comes in aroun 5pm it is a hive of acitivity. Also check out the movie at the Kenai Fjord info centre on the Earthquake... More

We had fun walking along the shore checking out all of the different vessels. Too bad cruise ships tend to block a large portion of the view behind the docks.

Seward has a beautiful, clean and well maintained boat harbor. This is the place to go to watch the charter fishing boats come in and the fishermen unload their catches and filet them right there at the dock. There are coffee shops, ice cream places, and lots of charter services available for fishing and sight seeing. There is also a... More

We came to Seward to enjoy the area before boarding our Celebrity cruise. We walked along the boardwalk of this boat harbor more than once and enjoyed watching all the boat activities. There are nice seats, good restaurants and other places available to help the visitor enjoy the area. It was SOOO fun to wake in the morning, look out... More

We enjoyed a pleasant stroll around the boardwalk of the busy harbour, and browsing the nearby shops. There are plenty of restaurants, should you wish to spend longer here, and you may be fortunate to see some sea otters. It is well kept, and not as smelly as the Spit at Homer! Extend your walk with a gentle stroll along... More

Went to this harbor for our Resurrection Bay tour. Such a beautiful place this is. Nestled in the mountains of Seward.

Absolutely incredible scenery is to be had in Alaska and there is something about a harbor full of boats with the snowcapped mountains in the background. By all means take some time and walk around and enjoy the views

We enjoyed strolling along the harbor during our stay in Seward. The boats were cool and the cruise ships huge! We watched otters play. There are numerous restaurants. We did a lot of souvenir shopping in the various shops. Harbor Creamery is a must for ice cream if visiting the harbor!
