This is an all-day adventure. Generally the boats leave from downtown around 7:30AM and return around 4:00PM. They motor south to Holkham Bay and then up the incredibly narrow and enclosed fjord of Tracy Arm to the South Sawyer Glacier. At that location, they stop and wait and watch and listen... for ice calving off the front of the magnificent... More

This trip is a wonder. Being from Juneau, you can get a little desensitized to beautiful landscapes and seascapes, but taking this journey brought the wonder all back into focus for me. The fjord walls are that much more dramatic, and the glacier views from the water side inspired long stares and silence for both my wife and I. Our... More

We were on a Disney Cruise to Alaska. This was our first stop while at sea. We had plenty of time here to enjoy the views. The ship did a 360 degree turn so that we could see it no matter where we stood on the ship. A must see on a cruise to Alaska. It was an amazing in... More

This place is very charming. Especially when you can see little icebergs around the ship. Glacier is blue itself, if you get to see it on sunny day the blue is amazing, even would not find the words to describe :) Depending on the weather ship comes to glacier very close, you are able to get amazing, unique pics.

In respect to your time and money, Tracy Arm Fjord has always been my favorite suggested tour in the Juneau, Alaska area. I was lucky enough years ago to work two summers on a vessel traveling Stephens Passage to Tracy Arm four times a week. Tracy Arm provides the traveler with views even some Alaskans have not seen. Traveling through... More

Amazing, breathtaking, a must see. We had a chance to see the fjord from all the sides as the ships made a 360 degree turn several times. We could also spot sea lions and orcas. You could see how the fjord melts, so sad to know that we are responsible for that

We were on the Celebrity Solistice and had a great time. The view from the ship was breath taking. We would take this trip again, The water falls coming off the mountain where so beautiful and the glacier was so breath taking.

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
