Seward Small Boat Harbor Tours

29 Reviews
As one of Alaska’s small boating centers Seward Harbor is considered to be one of the best destinations for sailing in the world. Situated at the entry to Kenai Fjords National Park, the surrounding waters are rich with a variety of marine wildlife. Bald eagles, sea otters, sea lions, and other sea birds are also often passing above the sea. 

Undeniably the most common vessel in the Seward Small Boat Harbor is the sailboat, yet it’s also an excellent launching point for kayaks and small fishing boats. Seasonally whale watching cruises depart from the harbor as well. With many vessels departing for the scenic Kenai Fjords from here, there are plenty of restaurants, hotels, and facilities along the water to suit visitors. 

The harbor itself is calm and scenically surrounded by snow-capped mountains.  Uniquely the water does not freeze at any point during the year (but if it’s ice you’re after, the massive Exit Glacier is nearby.)

Practical Info

Seward is located on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska, about 125 miles south of Anchorage. It can be accessed via the Seward Highway between the two cities. Seward is also the last (or first) stop of the Alaska Railroad. The Seward Small Boat Harbor lies on the northern edge of Resurrection Bay. Get there by driving to milepost 1.6 on Seward Highway.
