After working in Skagway for the summer, I stoped in Juneau for five days on my way home. Everyone, and I mean everyone, in Skagway said that I should absolutely not miss the Tracy Arm glacier trip. They were all right, it was truly unbelievable... I took the Captain Cook with Captain Steve and met the most amazing people on... More

As much as the glacier was spectacular what was more impressive was the 2 hour slow cruise (1hour in and 1 hour back out) into the Fjord. You can quickly lose count of all the waterfalls cascading down the mountains on each side of you. Just a serene trip.

Wow just wow- we had such a great time visiting here! It was an early 5am morning as we entered the fjord, but the experience was just breathtaking and worth getting up so early. Our cruise ship had a commentator who worked for National Geographic, who made the experience even more memorable through his stories and explanations (we went on... More

Wonderful view of nature. We lucked out weather wise and the views were simply breath taking. We enjoyed viewing the fjord from our cruise ship drinking coffee.

I was on the Volendam and took a side trip to the Tracy Arm Fjord glacier. It was truly amazing. A large catamaran pulled up beside the ship and we transferred on to it. The crew were fantastic - young, energetic and engaging. They had seen whales on their way to the ship, so they backtracked and took us to... More

It was a fantastic opportunities to see the Tracy Arm Fjord and Glazier, All the way up the Fjord is amazing. From hearing the popping and cracking from the icebergs as they go past to the amazing show of wildlife on show. It was an early start of 4am on our liner to enjoy the sights, but well with it.

This day trip we took from our cruise ship was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. The ice fields were fantastic. And the views of the moutains were breathtaking. Don't miss this if you are in the area.

If you ever get a chance to take a a boat thru here do it! This was some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. Nice little cruise into the fjord where we just sat and looked at the scenery. Boat driver killed the engine and it was so peaceful just looking at the fjord. After cruising out... More

We viewed on an Alaskan cruise in May 2016. So glad it we could enjoyed it on our balcony and just serenely take in the views! Beautiful landscapes as we cruised up in the morning and saw the fog clear and reveal waterfalls melting and the glacier at the end of the fjord.
