Hey, it's a beautiful glacier with gorgeous water clariry. I saw this place from the ship bow. You cannot beat the blue ice.

We took Allen Marine Tour up Tracy Arm to the Sawyer Glaciers. While we did not see glaciers calving, we did see abundant wildlife - including humpback whales doing bubble net feeding, harbor seals, a bear, a herd of mountain goats, and many bald eagles. Great!

In the wee hours of the morning, 5 a.m. to be exact, we sailed into Tracy Arm Fjord in Alaska aboard The Ruby Princess cruise ship. Words can't begin to describe this magnificent and majestic location. Seeing the turquoise blue icebergs were simply breathtaking.

We booked this tour when cruising on the MS Volendam. They really should change the name of the tour. After we boarded the tour boat, out tour guide informed us that we wouldn't be going up Tracy Arm due to it not being navigable, because of the amount of icebergs in it. He said very matter-of-factly "no-one has been up... More

This is a must cruise on a smaller boat! We just returned from an Alaskan cruise and although this is a beautiful area on the cruise ship, you really do not get an idea of the size of the glacier until you are on a smaller boat! We booked this as an excursion through Carnival and it was pricey for... More

I have lived in Juneau for 38 years. My family and I have taken most all of the tours available out of Juneau. They each have their unique allure but the Tracy Arm day trip offers pretty much all the sights the others offer at a much less frenetic pace. Tracy arm is one of our favorite places to take...

We recently cruised Tracy Arm Fjord via cruise ship. Scenery was beautiful! Unfortunately, our ship could only get within 4 miles of Dawson glacier due to the amount of ice floating in the water as well as seals on the floating ice. The ship offered tours that would get you closer but they were very expensive. Still, very pretty.

The scenery was breathtaking! From the beautiful water, trees, and mountains. To sit and watch was such a calming experience. Can't wait to visit again.

Majestic views of one of Mother Nature's finest works. Sippin' hot cocoa on a balcony of a cruise ship is not a bad way to spend a day!
