It is great for photos and to experience a magnificent glacier. There are many, many different colors of blue and it really is beautiful. With that said, it is a bit "boring" (for lack of a better word). There is not much to do or tour. There is also not much wildlife. However, it is a great example of the... More

Hi, Thank you very much for sharing the most beautiful pictures I ever seen. They were much like post cards or the scenics in the movies. Are you a professional photographer? What kind of camera was it? Seeing these stunning pictures, I cannot wait to see Alaska on my own eyes. I really appreciate that. My family and I plan... More

We went in September and it was beautiful. I can only imagine what its like when there is more ice in that waters of the fjord and you can hear and feel the amazing rumble from large sections of the glacier breaking off. We didn't get to experience that but we talked to many people who had. I think April/... More

A beautiful, majestic view by boat to and from the Fjord! We were able to see a lot of icebergs, seals, birds, and beautiful scenery on our trip. The boat was an overall comfortable trip. Pack a lunch and drink , sit back and enjoy.

Our family has gone on this trip 4 times either with ourselves or we take friends and family that come to visit us on this trip. It is fantastic each time. The glacier's are wonderful, going into the Fjord's amazing. The wildlife, from seeing bears, mountain goats, birds, seals, whales, it is amazing.

I have been to many places in this world featuring glaciers, from fjords in Alaska, Chile, and Norway to land-locked glaciers in North America and Europe. The only place at all comparable is Hardangerfjord in Norway, in my opinion.

If you do nothing else while visiting Juneau, you must visit Tracy Arm Fjord....magnificent!! Of course, you must go by boat...The Captain on our boat was a gem, with a dry laconic sense of humour....:)

The inlet that takes you to the glaciers is gorgeous. You will pass by stunning waterfalls, cliffs and mountains. As you approach the glacier, there are dozens of seals laying on the ice. They are so cute! The glacier is magnificent. If you are lucky, you may see see a piece of ice breaking and falling into the water. The... More

Tracy Arm fjord is extremely beautiful from the boat or land. The mountains reflecting off the still water are breathtaking. Bring binoculars to watch the birds and wildlife.

Sailing up the Tracy Arm was spectacular. The scenery of mountains, forests, glaciers, waterfalls and icebergs were awe inspiring.
