We took this toque off the cruise ship, Holland America. The tour company met you at the pier and you drive a short distance and then got on a boat for the day. They provided binoculars and a bag lunch. The scenery was nice and as you saw icebergs in the water which was kinda cool to see. Our biat... More

My husband and I took a cruise to Alaska and at the advice of several friends got a balcony room. The reason they recommended a balcony was because of Tracy Arm Fjord. We arrived in the fjord about 5am and being able to see the sites from the privacy of our room and balcony was fantastic. We cruised all the... More

We went with Adventure Bound Alaska to experience Tracy Arm Fjord. I had heard great things about the trip and indeed, it did not disappoint. Captain Steve not only got us up close and personal to two glaciers to watch and hear ice caving, but he also stopped to view bears along side the fjord and brought us up under... More

My family and I went on this cruise excursion through the Holland America line out of Vancouver. It was my favorite part of the whole cruise! I would highly recommend it!!! Tracy's Arm Fjord is beautiful and the Sawyer Glacier was amazing. We also lucked out and saw glacier calving, several black bears and a couple of whales. My group... More

This was an excursion we booked several months prior to our cruise as we realised it would be the only way to see this area. We were not disappointed and would recommend that anyone who finds themselves in the area makes this trip a priority as the views are astounding. We had a great crew who were keen and informative...

I would highly recommend visiting this stunning area of Alaska. The scenery is filled with icebergs, waterfalls, small islands, wildlife, and of course, the beautiful blue glacier. Hearing the ice calving off the glacier was incredible. I would love to go back!

Tracy Arm with Adventure Bound was one of the highlights of our trip 3 years ago, and we weren't disappointed when we went again this time! Brilliant, blue icebergs, stunning scenery, and lots of wildlife, even though it was a cloudy and damp day! It was shocking to see how much the glacier had retreated in 3 years, and we... More
