Bus Transfer: Anchorage to Seward with Wildlife Tour

This one-way transfer from Anchorage to the Seward cruise terminal is an excellent add-on for guests cruising to Alaska.

To start your worry-free trip, we'll pick you up directly from your hotel or the Anchorage airport in our 28-passenger shuttle bus. You'll want to have your camera ready for our scenic drive alongside the beautiful Turnagain Arm. You'll love hearing your guide's expert narration and personalized stories about the Anchorage area.

The highlight of this tour is our stop at the famous Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center! The AWCC is a nonprofit providing care and rehabilitation to Alaskan wildlife. Typically, these animals have been orphaned or injured and come to the AWCC for a permanent home.

The Center is home to many species including brown bears, black bears, moose, porcupines, and Sitka black-tail deer. On this tour, you'll also learn about local conservation efforts, like the AWCC's collaborative effort with the Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game to repopulate western Alaska with wood bison after a 100-year absence.

After leaving the Center, we'll finish our transfer with a scenic drive through the Kenai Mountains. We'll make a stop at Canyon Creek overlook for some incredible photo ops before reaching Seward. Finally, we'll bring you right to the cruise terminal for the next portion of your Alaskan adventure!

Non-cruise guests may utilize this tour as well.

Please note that this tour only runs on Mondays and Fridays.
