From the Eagles on an iceberg at the entrance, to the glaciers, waterfalls, seals. Even got to see Harbor Porpoise. Glacier calving, the color of the icebergs is just fantastic blue! And the ice sculpture shapes of the bergs are so fanciful! Snow capped mountains, waterfalls. Just WOW, everywhere! Take the boat tour up to Sawyer Glacier, it is worth... More

We took the boat to see the glaciers and were not disappointed. When pieces of the glaciers slid off, (calving) the loud sound that resulted and the wave action really gave you a sense of the power released. I enjoyed the seals on the ice floes also. A great place to visit as part of your getting to know Alaska.

Did the boat trip, which was great all the way around. Saw some amazing glacier calving, as many harbor seals as you could ever like to see, nice waterfalls, a brief sighting of some orcas, etc. Loved it. Try to book direct with the boat rather than through a consolidator and you will avoid many ticketing problems on the day... More

Worth your visit from Juneau via boat Might seem expensive but once you see color of glacier ice and whales surfaces you truly understand why a trip to Tracy is a must It's simply a wow and cannot be explained by pictures

This place is a MUST SEE! This was a stop over on our cruise to Juneau and it was worth getting up at dawn to see. Our skies were blue and the weather was perfect (cold) as we walked the deck of our ship to soak up the sites...... Small icebergs floated by and the mountains were green with waterfalls... More

Not only you will see the beautiful scenery and glacier, but you will also enjoy the fauna. Hundreds of seals rest on ice by the glacier. It's so much fun to watch them play! The inlet you will be passing through is gorgeous, with its beautiful fiords, mountains and waterfalls. Some advice: plan on going there during June, July and... More

Adventure bound Alaska operates this day long tour from Juneau to a spectacular fjord with steep rock walls and elevated glacial valleys. Two glaciers: Sawyer and South Sawyer give plenty of opportunity to witness glacial calving firsthand. Adventure Bound even guarantees calving, so if you don't see any the next trip is free. Captain Steve has done this for nearly... More

On planning our cruise this destination was an afterthought. It proved to be one of the highlights of the trip. With the weather being great the day we were there the light for photography was amazing.

I must admit that we were a bit skeptical about going for a day trip down the coast to a Fjord. The firs couple of hours were taken up with travelling at high speed down the Gastineau Channel and into position in Tracy Arm. The crew on the boat were friendly and informative, but this was the end of the... More
