Loved everything about Tracy Arm Fjord, amazing views!! Got to see lots of seals at the base of the glacier and 2 eagles and their neat on the side of the mountain. We were also very fortunate to see some glacier calving. We were blown away by the beauty and how close our Disney Cruise Ship was able to get... More

Our cruise ship visited here later in the day. It was a brilliant sunny day which made the viewing of this stunning place even more brilliant. Saw otters but no whales which was disappointing. The glaciers are absolutely nature at its finest. We thought this area was much prettier than glacier bay - although that was a cold rainy day... More

We went with Allen Marine Tours through the Regent's Seven Seas Navigator cruise lines and had an excellent experience. The trip up and back is breathtaking. The glacier is a beautiful blue color and has many seals surrounding it. We even had the incredible good fortune to hear and see it calve. Dress very warmly. I wore a thermal top,... More

Amazing views. The water is a beautiful green color. Words or pictures cannot relate the level of beauty that I experienced. We were able to get very close to the Sawyer glacier, and took awesome pictures. There were waterfalls in every direction. We were fortunate to visit on a sunny day, but I imagine it would be beautiful in any... More

This was our first experience in Alaska last week and what an experience! God's natural beauty at every corner! The Sawyer Glacier was absolutely breathtaking! We were able to get up close off one of the cruise ship excursions and I think this was one of the highlights of the trip. We were able to see both arms of the... More

We went up Tracy Arm on Holland America's Zaandam...WOW is all I can say! We got up close to the Sawyer Glacier and the harbour seals sunning themselves but the best part was coming out and seeing hundreds of humpback whales! Some of them felt the need to perform for us as we sailed by! It was awesome! Has to... More

The Tracy Arm Fjord is one of the most beautiful places we have ever experienced. Harbor seals were sunning out on the ice flows. We did not see a lot of other wildlife except for some whales as we entered the Fjord. The mountains had waterfalls and cascades all across their faces. Glaciers came down deep into the gorge. It...

It is difficult for words to convey such an amazing experience we had the opportunity to enjoy. It truly puts a scale on our short lives on this planet. I am sure there are other glaciers (better and worse), but this was my first up-close experience and it was very spiritual. Of course there are countless eagles and other wildlife... More

This is something we almost passed up. I am so happy we didn't. If you want to feel Alaska go here! The glacier's are a site to see! The blue is so pretty in the ice and the air is so clean. The boat is great with great crew members. They even get you glacier ice to try. Don't pass... More

This fjord along the Inner Passage was only recently opened again (maybe 5 years ago). It is not on everyone's itinerary, but if you get a chance to go here, by all means do. It is breath-takingly beautiful. The trip up the fjord is stunning with its high steep green slopes and waterfalls. The water is deep blue and it's... More
