The City of Seward (www.cityofseward.net) is South Central Alaska's playground. A remarkable and vibrant community of 3000 people, Seward is located 125 miles south of Anchorage at the terminus of the Seward Highway. The City is situated on the north end of Resurrection Bay, with easy access to Exit Glacier, Kenai Fjords National Park, fishing, hunting, camping skiing, flightseeing and many other activities to meet your needs. We are a full service city with 50-ton and 250-ton Travelifts, a 5000-ton Syncrolift, boat repair shops, hardware stores, novelty and gift stores, grocery stores, art galleries, restaurants, hotels and many other amenities to meet every need. Seward is also home to the Alaska SeaLife Center, the newest and largest marine research center in Alaska. There area over 100 charter boat operators and a dozen day tour operators in the harbor to help you enjoy your visit to the fullest extent possible. Established in 1964, Seward Harbor has grown and matured and continues to grow today. We completely renewed the northern part of the harbor float system during the winter of 2000-2001. The aging wood float system was replaced with state of the industry concrete floats and upgraded utilities. New ramps and fish cleaning stations were a part of this renovation and have dramatically improved the facilities and access for our customers and visitors. In 2-5 years, the City of Seward, in partnership with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, is planning an eastward expansion of the harbor, adding about 350 slips. In conjunction with that project, or shortly after, we plan to replace the floats in the southern portion of the harbor. These improvement plans include improved access for everyone and Americans with Disabilities Act compliant access as well.
