Small boat, lasr seat row is very cold because of the doot. The 2 glaciers are awesome, one has harbour seals all around. Both featured great calvings when we went. A note, captain was very keen on waterfalls, this is ok but he passed a whale saying we would see another one, which did not happen at all. SHAME.

Go - this was a highlight of our trip. Waterfalls, icebergs, two glaciers. Saw a bear, too! Excellent was to see glaciers when you are not on a "cruise".

The trip down the Tracy Arm Fjord can only be described as an experience. The cruise into the fjord is 26 miles from beginning to the head, which is where the South Sawyer glacier sits. We did this trip aboard the Golden Princess, and enjoyed the views from the comfort of our stateroom balcony. You will not see any gas... More

Tracy Are Fjord was just amazing. The glacier was breathtaking. The tour group got to know each other over the course of the day, and this made the excursion even more fun. Captain Steve was so knowledgeable about Alaska's environment. As a school teacher I couldn't take in enough information! This is a glacier tour, and they don't guarantee seeing... More

Our Captain Steve was very funny and was genuinely happy to be out there showing us a good time. He was an incredible driver and managed to get us crazy close to huge icebergs and beautiful waterfalls! I got to touch the side of the mountain in this strange little alcove he took us to and stuck my head under... More

We took this trip on the last day of a week in Juneau. It was a brilliant trip. The crew were very knowledgable and made a real effort to show us interesting things on the way to the glacier, including two orca whales. We had plenty of time at the glacier and were able to get much closer than any... More

My parents had taken this voyage in previous visits to Alaska, but this was my first time in Juneau. We took the day long trip to Tracy Fjord and scenery was absolutely stunning! We saw many waterfalls and spent a good amount of time (45 minutes or so) at the glacier. We could not get that close to it as... More

There were 6 of us who took this day cruise from Juneau in first week of June. We had a perfect, sunny day and a very empty boat (about 15 pax all up) because we were so early in season. This is a 'mom and pop' type operation, which we really appreciated. Could b.y.o. or get sandwiches from them for... More

Simply put, this trip was one of the highlights of our 10 days in Alaska. One striking view after another the entire way - ocean, fjord, cliffs, glaciers, animals, etc, etc, etc. AMAZING to get to so close to the icebergs and glaciers. The weather and conditions allowed the captain to spend a lot of time drifting quietly in front... More

Our family went on this trip and it was great. We opted not to go on the cruise ship's excursion and chose this one instead. I contacted Winona and she was great at answering questions about if the time frame would work with our cruise itinerary since it was booked outside the cruise ship. She let me know if we... More
