Bus Transfer: Seward to Anchorage with Wildlife Tour

6 reviews

Excursion Overview

Transfer from Seward to Anchorage with a stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

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

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

This tour begins with a scenic drive through the Kenai Mountains. We'll make a stop at the Canyon Creek overlook for a can't-miss photo opportunity.

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.

We'll drive up Alaska Route 1 alongside the Turnagain Arm shoreline, one of the country's most beautiful scenic drives, as we approach Anchorage. Finally, we'll drop you right off at your hotel or Anchorage International Airport.

Non-cruise guests may utilize this tour as well.

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

I didn't find the 'tour' very interesting, the information seemed random. Maybe there just wasn't much to say. But the wildlife park was a nice stop and the ride was comfortable. The driver was very friendly.

The bus ride was in a small comfortable bus which was almost full. We had three view point stops and a 45 min visit of the Wildlife refuge unguided. Our driver was courteous and well informed.
