Excellent weather the whole day as we cruised all the way to the end of the fjord to see the Sawyer Glacier. Standing on the very front of the top deck, I took hundreds of pictures. Everywhere you look, there is a "Kodak moment." This is nature at its very best.

We were on a small expedition ship with only 60 people and spent some time getting right up close and personal in zodiacs. This was our 1st tide water glacier and we were mesmerized by the beauty of the blue ice. We cruised up and through many icebergs of all sizes, saw calving and harbor seals hauled out on the... More

We preferred this to the Glacier Bay Itenerary. Much more intimate and we got right next to the face of the glacier. Beautiful!

Tracy Arm Fjord was an outstanding trip, one we locals like to take our visiting guests on. Family friendly day adventure that you will see the best Southeast Alaska has to offer! The wildlife, birds and marine mammals all right there, in your face. Great value!

We were on a cruise when we went through this area of Alaska. I woke up at 6am as to not miss a minute of this SPECTACULAR place. It was like stepping back in time to when man had yet to scar and change the landscape. The pristine water, ice floats and clouds added to the mystery of the area.... More

Take the tour it's worth every penny!!! One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen . Make sure you take a good camera because you will never be able to describe the beauty of this place. We took a boat tour and there was ice floating in the water, seals and sea lions, doll goats ....I could go on... More

Our cruise ship took use through Tracy Arm Fjord and it was awesome to sit out on the balcony and just take it all in. It's just not something you see every day if you live any where else in the world.

We traveled the route by tracy arm twice in our month long visit to Alaska and quite frankly we didn't see what all the hoopla was about. Misty national monument fjords were far prettier and more interesting, and we have literally hundreds of pictures with far more beautiful scenery as we traversed the state from Fairbanks to Anchorage, Kenai peninsula,...

Leading up to our cruise, I kept second guessing if I should have booked the ship that left the day before that went to Glacier Bay instead. I'm happy to say, I'm really glad we went to Tracy Arm on our cruise. It was absolutely stunning all around. If you are lucky like we were, your boat will be able... More
