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.

Tracy Arm was beautiful. My eye opening moment was realizing that even looking through the binoculars the seals looked very small. As I thought about that, it dawned on me how huge that glacier was!

If you take one boat trip to see fjords, glaciers and wildlife, take this one. You get close up views to everything.

We cruised on a ship and visited many places but this was majestic. The glaciers crack like rifle fire and then drop into the sea. Purely spectacular to witness. Make this fjord top of your list when visiting Alaska.
