Go Whale Watching or Fishing

Seward is home to countless species of marine wildlife, including seals, otters, fish, birds and five species of whales. From large catamarans to small vessels, tour companies sail through Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park on chartered excursions. Panoramic views entice visitors to experience the coastal community’s natural beauty from onboard a wildlife cruise. Listen to narrated stories and learn about the local wildlife from the knowledgeable captains on full-day or half-day tours. Indulge in salmon and prime-rib buffets onboard while watching for orca and humpback whales sprouting, breaching and lunging through the seas. To experience some of the best angling on the Kenai Peninsula, book a fishing charter to reel in king salmon and halibut. For true sport fishermen, the Silver Salmon Derby in August is a must. Drawing visitors from across the country, its grand prize is worth more than $100,000.
