Getting to Seward
Rent a Car
The best way to find a rental car is through one of the internet travel sites like Expedia, Kayak, Travelocity, etc. The only car rental provider in Seward is Hertz. There are many rental places in Anchorage, but we suggest NOT renting a car at the airport since prices are usually inflated. Instead, take a short cab ride to a rental car shop outside the airport to save some money!
Take the Train
We highly recommend checking out Alaska Railroad. The train ride is a bit longer than the drive but has stunning scenery along the way. Plus, it’s a great way to go if you don’t want to deal with a car while in town.
Hop on a Bus
There are two companies that provide bus rides to and from Seward. They both offer different schedules and pricing, so take a look at them all to find out which one matches your itinerary best.
Getting Around in Seward
If you rent a car, you’ll be able to get around Seward easily. It’s a small town, and everything is relatively close together. If you arrive via train, you’ll arrive at the train station near the small boat harbor. It’s a 5-minute walk to the harbor from the station and a 15-20 minute walk to downtown from the station. Downtown and the harbor are about a 10-15 walk apart, and there are many restaurants, bars, and shops between the two.
The free downtown shuttle operates daily from 8 am – 6 pm in the summer; learn more by clicking here. Additionally, here are a few of the local taxi companies you can call:
Directions To Kayak Adventures Worldwide
As you drive into Seward, the Seward Highway becomes 3rd Avenue. If you keep driving straight on this road, you will pass the small boat harbor on your left. Keep heading straight, and 3rd Avenue will take you into downtown Seward. You’ll pass Madison St. as you crest the hill, and then you’ll see Jefferson St. The senior center is located there on the corner, and you’ll recognize it by the huge mural painted on the side of the building.
Keep going, and you’ll see our little kayak shop just past the Senior Center on your left. It’s a small house with a big red kayak out front – hard to miss! We are located on 3rd Avenue between the cross-streets of Adams and Jefferson. We have parking on the street in front of the shop. Just give us a call if you have any problems!
