130 miles south of Anchorage lies the quaint seaside town of Seward, gateway to the magnificent Kenai Fjords National Park. Within the crystal green waters of the Fjords is an abundant array of tidewater and piedmont glaciers. Marine wildlife includes otters, sea lions, harbor seals, humpback and orca whales, porpoises, puffins and kittiwakes. Kenai Fjords National Park is most easily accessed by tour boat from Seward or by driving out to Exit Glacier, just outside of Seward. Wildlife and glacier exhibits are available at the Small Boat Harbor visitor center and the Alaska Sealife Center. Activities A cruise into the Kenai Fjords National Park is a must during your visit to Alaska. Kenai Fjords cruises out of Seward range from five, six, eight or ten hours in duration and encompass various areas of the Park, including Resurrection Bay, Fox Island, Holgate Arm and the Northwestern Fjord.
