Seward Cruise Port Terminal
Seward is as scenic as they come, wedged between the jagged mountains on one side and the glittering Resurrection Bay on the other. Seward has always managed to draw visitors for it beauty as well as being a springboard to the Kenai Fjords National Park. It's a compact quaint town where all the attractions are within walking distance.
One of the highlights at Seward is the Alaska Sea Life Centre where one can see playful porpoises, sea lions and other marine life in natural surroundings
THINGS TO DO AND SEE
- To the north of Seward is the Exit Glacier - pay a visit for a close
up view of the glacier
- Adventure enthusiasts can go kayaking in Resurrection Bay
- Hikers will love the trails in the Kenai Fjords National Park
- Take a day boat tour to catch a glimpse of marine life or even a glacier
calving. It's an awesome sight!
There are two distinct areas in the small town of Seward: the small boat waterfront and the Historic downtown area. Shop for souvenirs and hand crafted gifts to take back home.
GRAB A BITE
If you are by the waterfront, stop by at Chinooks to sample their King Crabs or salmon. Great service, good food and amazing views! Crepes are a specialty at Le Barn Appétit - vegetarians will be spoilt for choice here and the atmosphere and friendly service have made sure it is the number one spot to have a meal at when in Seward. After that head to Nature's Nectar and sip on the best coffee in that Alaska has to offer!
