Wonderful views of wildlife, glacier, and icebergs - close up! With wonderful laid back crew. This was the best view of the prettiest glacier that we saw in Alaska. Worth every penny.

See Tracey Arm fijord review in September for details on this excursion, and what you may expect. Access to the glacier is seasonal and should be booked in advance.
