Seward Day Cruises, Fishing Day Trips & Outdoor Adventures

Seward, Alaska is a seacoast town 128 miles south of Anchorage. This picturesque town is reached by road on the Seward Highway, a National Scenic Byway and All-American Road, as well as by the Alaska Railroad. This quaint coastal town is nestled between mountain slopes cloaked in shaggy summer greens and Resurrection Bay, an impressive backdrop for this progressive city of some 4,000 people. The city is named for William H. Seward, who arranged for Alaska’s purchase from Russia in 1867.

Seward became a town-site in 1903 to serve as a terminal construction point for the Alaska Railroad. Today, it is best known as the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park, one of Alaska’s treasures with abundant wildlife and spectacular glacier scenery. This lush coastal wilderness is home to humpback and orca whales, puffins, Stellar sea lions and many other species. The Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, is one of Alaska’s newest attractions with exhibits of sea mammals and fish that make their home in the frigid North Pacific.
