The “halibut fishing capital of the world” lived up to its billing. We booked a half-day excursion with Bob’s Trophy Charters and successfully hauled in the maximum of two keepers per person. To cap it off, we brought some of our freshly fileted...

Before leaving Seward, it’s worth the effort to visit the glacier and visitor center to help you understand how these massive ice caps have shaped the geography of the area. A hike to the ice flow itself is breathtaking and can easily be done in...
