Each year Seward celebrates the arrival of spring on the coast of Alaska with the return or the Grey Whales as they migrate through Alaskan waters. Our local tour boat companies Major Marine Tours and Kenai Fjord Tours offer Grey Whale tours each season. Tours are operated on weekends up to April 9th and up to April 14th.
Things have been windy, cold and the waters have been a bit unfriendly for kayaking for the last few weeks. However the forecast is looking better down the road. Spring is fast approaching and we are ready to see the warmer temperatures and budding trees again. We are seeing a lot of new faces around town as the new people show up to start working at the various seasonal businesses and shops here in Seward.
