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

The most beautiful and peaceful place I've ever seen! We did some "scenic" cruising on our Princess Cruise to Alaska. It was like nothing I've seen before.

We did a Regent Inside Passage cruise and booked an excursion while involved transferring from our cruise ship to the Allen Marine catamaran just inside the entrance to Tracy Arm Fjord and cruising up the fjord to the face of the South Sawyer Glacier and then all the way back to Juneau to meet up with the cruise ship again....

We did the Fjord as part of a cruise on Celebrity Solstice. The morning started out very foggy, but as we entered the Fjord, the fog started to lift. The combination of the lifting fog, the breaking blue sky, and the sun poking through the holes in the fog, made the entrance to the Fjord very magical. The fog lifted... More
