What the travel writers think about Seward, AK
Palm Beach Post, by John J. Lopinot, Sunday, January 08, 2006. Kenai Fjords is a major tourist attraction, but, unfortunately, a pricey one. The vast majority of visitors to the park either take a quick land trip to Exit Glacier, near Seward, or splurge on a tour-boat cruise to the coastal glaciers.

If you go on a tour boat, you feel like you're in the middle of a National Geographic TV special, with Dall's porpoises, humpback whales, steller sea lions, sea otters and harbor seals so close you can practically touch them.

The Associated Press, by CHRIS CAROLA “During the excursion, we spied a variety of coastal sealife, including clusters of seals and sea lions, otters and a variety of waterfowl. But the highlight of the outing, and possibly the entire trip, was spotting a humpback whale and watching as it broke the surface to blow water through its spout, as if offering us an Alaskan farewell. “

The Associated Press, by CHRIS CAROLA Exit Glacier is one of the few glaciers people can walk up to and touch.

Frommer's, The best trips starts here describes Seward.The main reason to go to Seward has always been Resurrection Bay. This agreeable little town started life as a place to fish and to get off boats arriving in Alaska, then continued as a place for Alaskans and visitors to get on boats and see the bay and Kenai Fjords National Park
