The big ships can’t get as close to the Sawyer Glacier as they once did, and the ice floes are not as thick, but the cruise up the Tracy Arm Fjord is still an awe inspiring journey. The ice formations are lovely, the high narrow...More

Simply nature at its best. Once you witness this beauty you'll want everyone to become an environmentalist to protect this gorgeous place.

We took a 2+ hour trip from our cruise ship on board a catamaran. The approach took us through several ice floes many of which had mother and baby seals resting on them. We were able to get quite close which gave great photos. Getting...More

This is an ice choked fjord with majestic views, waterfall, wildlife and calving glacier. Incredible, but only accessible by cruise ship, I believe. Sometimes the fjord is inaccessible due to icebergs, in which case Endicott Arm/Dawes Glacier will be substituted in the itinerary. No worries,...More

We cruised through the Tracy Arm inlet on a cruise. The scenery and weather were fabulous but we saw very little wildlife, unlike Glacier Bay and the Inside Passage.

Loads of icebergs and crystal clear mirror waters. It takes over an hour to get in and at least as long to exit. Great photo opportunity!!
