About Seward Alaska

Seward is the easiest place to find fish and see glaciers. The year-round population is about 2,000, but it can swell to about 30,000 around the popular Fourth of July weekend festivities. The town was named after William Seward, secretary of state under President Andrew Johnson, who engineered the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. His critics around the country were appalled. The United States had spent $7.2 million, they cried, for icebergs, and polar bears. Cartoonists showed Seward amid glaciers and walruses. They claimed the new territory should more aptly be called “Walrussia” or “Seward’s Folly.” Asked at the end of his long and distinguished career about his single greatest achievement, Seward responded, “The purchase of Alaska! But it will take Congress and the American people a generation to find it out.” That original purchase price has been paid back thousands of times over in fur, gold, fish, timber, and oil. Ironically, now tourists come (and pay) to see icebergs, walruses, polar bears, and glaciers.

While you’ll see plenty of ice in Seward, you won’t see walruses or polar bears this far south, unless you come for a strange event the third week of January, known as the Seward Polar Bear Jump-off Festival. When everyone else is wearing parkas and wool hats, strange characters in costumes and capes – all for charity and the theater of the absurd – plunge into the frigid waters of Resurrection Bay and come flying back out. It’s their entry fee to an elite and wacky club, the Polar Bear Club. Resurrection Bay is the best of Seward, an inviting front yard, attracting boaters, birders, kayakers, fisherman, sailors, and whale watchers. Full of glaciers and incredible wildlife, all the western coast of the bay is in Kenai Fjords National Park. Seward is the beginning of the railroad to Fairbanks and Mile 0 on the old historic Seward to Nome gold rush/mail route, today more familiarly known as the Iditarod Trail.

Anchorage to Seward
The driver was very personable and the bus was comfortable. Best price for cruises.The scenery was so pretty and the commentary was interesting and contained many interesting facts.. It is a shame how the cruise industry treats arriving and departing passengers as captive and charge excessive fees for the transportation.

Great Transportation with a stop you cant get on the train!
This was our second time cruising Alaska. However, this time we were taking our teenage children. We debated on taking the train from Anchorage to Seward but decided on the bus instead. It was the only way to get in the stop at the Wildlife Center. It was a great way to get some ‘guaranteed’ animal viewing in. It ended up on the bus ride we saw even more wildlife along the way and our guide was very informative and friendly. Totally recommend this being part of your journey!

Great way to transfer to a cruise ship
I chose the wildlife tour option as an informative/fun way of getting to the ship. The company couldn’t pick up from the hotel I was staying in, but we arranged to be picked up from one nearby. They were early!
Shari was very personable and helpful throughout, giving a running commentary, peppered with plenty of self deprecating humour
We stopped for a photo stop and got some breathtakingly beautiful pictures.
We had enough time at the wildlife sanctuary to see everything and it was certainly worth taking this tour.
We got to the terminal and just walked straight on the ship, with no line. Perfect
For the small amount extra I felt it was well worth it
Highly recommended

Achorage to Seward plus Wildlife!
We chose the Anchorage to Seward Narrated Wildlife Tour four our large family trip. The pickup at the hotel was worth the price alone. Throwing in a very professional and courteous driver and narrator set the bar for quality customer service in a tranfer company. The cherry on top was the wildlife preserve along the trip for lunch and up close Alaska wildlife.

Great Value! Lots to See!
We decided to book with Alaskan Cruise Transportation to connect us with our Cruise which was to depart from Seward a few hours drive from Anchorage. This was a great way to experience Anchorage prior to joining our Alaskan Cruise from Seward.
Our Guide, Chris was friendly and cheery and offered interesting info from a lifetime of living in Anchorage. We had a great day on this tour including visiting the Animal Rehabilitation Centre, and enjoying a lovely Scenic Coastal drive to Seward.
As our mid-town Hotel was out of the Tour’s pick up zone, the Company was very happy to pick us up from the International Airport allowing us to par take in our Hotels Free Shuttle service to the Airport. A very suitable compromise saving us extra dollars. This only added to the good value for money and enjoyable tour choice we made with Alaskan Cruise Transportation. Thank you.

Highly Reccomended
We recently did a Royal Caribbean Alaska Cruise and I booked ACT for our transfer from Anchorage Airport to Sweard. They were very professional, the ride was comfortable and the most affordable option for making our departure time.

If only the weather was better…

We booked out transfer from Anchorage to Seward as a bus ride to our cruise ship. Everything was ‘by the book”, as explained on their web site..Ride was cosy and bus was comfortable. Lot to learn from the driver…came on time on the dock.

Anchorage to Seward transfer

We took the transfer from Anchorage to the cruise ship terminal in Seward as it was cheaper than any other option and gave us additional adventure. The wildlife center was worth the stop, and the driver and director were very friendly and helpful. The transfer picked us up at our hotel and avoided any additional travel to access and included the cost of the wildlife center fee.
