This trip was clearly a highlight to our visit! There was plenty of room both on board and on deck. Our Captain Steve Weber did an outstanding job of bringing us as close as possible to all the scenic wonders and gave us far more time in each area than any of the other tour boats I observed. Travellers also... More

We found the Captain Cook as described in our instructions. We were a little surprised to find the boat as full as it was with all seats taken and a hardy family of four sitting under covers on the fore-deck area. However the group soon gelled and conversation flowed easily as we set off into open water. We were free... More

It’s a long day but well worth doing. We saw about a dozen whales including one group of four which was awesome, numerous seals, a large iceberg as well as many smaller ones. While at the base at the glacier we witnessed a very large chunk calving off and crashing into the water as well as a large piece breaking... More

Our trip aboard the "Captain Cook" with Steve Weber as our captain was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska!!! He took us right up to the glaciers with ample opportunities to see wildlife, such as whales,eagles and seals. The fjords are magnificent and we were also able to get close to waterfalls and huge chunks of glacial... More

I highly recommend the Tracy Arm trip with Adventure Bound! The scenery is indescribable. The water in the inland sea was as calm as a bathtub. Captain Steve Weber is very knowledgeable about the area and was able to manuver right through all the icebergs straight to the glaciers. He even got close enough at some of the waterfalls so...

The wonderful, professional folks at Adventure Bound (especially Captain Steve and Winona) gave us a magical end to our wedding. After having a wonderful wedding experience with 40 of our close family and friends, we chartered the Captain Cook for a day-long trip to Tracy Arm the day after our wedding. The boat has a glassed-in, heated common area which... More

LOVED the fact we could get close to the glacier, waterfalls etc. I didn't like the fact the captain went closer than 1000 meters to the humpback, these laws are made for a reason...also disturbing is the fact the naturalist said that distance was kept when it clearly wasn't.

We visited Tracy Arm and Sawyer Glacier. We met the boat at the North end of the cruise dock The boat holds about 50 people, with benches three people wide on the left and right sides. Takes ten hours for the total trip. We stopped a few times to whale watch, and two hours at the glacier. We had perfect... More

Yes its a full day excursion. But trust me its totally worth it. Since the boat is small, it can get much closer to the action .. be it waterfalls or glaciers. I did this on the last day of my 10 day trip and was able to see a Black Bear up close, a pretty big Glacier caving, two... More
