This was is one of the most breathtaking places you can ever experience. It is etched in my memory to replay over and over. It is truly a place you have to see in person. Pictures are beautiful, but to be there is magnificent.

Cruising through the fjords made me feel like the luckiest person and considering I don't enjoy ice or cold temperatures, that means just about anyone can savor these beautiful views and experience. What's the point of being human if you can't rejoice in the marvels that this earth has to showcase? The Fjords rekindled my love of travel and I... More

A must see if traveling to Alaska. Easiest way is by cruise ship or helicopter. Highly recommended. You won't be sorry. The fjord is just gorgeous and the color of the glacier is the bluest ice you'll ever see.

It was a trip we made on a rainy day in August. Our fears were misplaced as the weather along the way to Tracy Fjord was just awesome. It cleared up just an hour into the trip on Captain Cook. Captain Steve's boat that took us to see the Twin Sawyer Glaciers was so comfortable and warm. The two young... More

The ship speaker awoke us at 6 am to informs we were cruising slowly through Tracy Arm Fjord and we went out to our balcony in our pj's to watch as free ice floated by and cascading waterfalls were revealed in the mountains. The ship slowed so we could glimpse and photograph Dawes Glacier. All this was explained by the... More

The trip down Tracy Arm Fjord to Dawes Glacier is spectacular. We were on Explorer of the Seas which was able to get within 500 metres of the glacier (surprising given the size of the ship - closest that they have been all season). The ice on the glacier was incredible and seeing all the floating ice as we approached... More

The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Crisp and clear air. Don't miss out on this. You will see glaciers and the hand of God at his finest. Watching a glacier calve is very loud and amazing.

We were on a cruise and got 500mt from the glacier. The colours of the icebergs that had broken off were worth the trip along.

Seeing the Tracy Arm Fjord through Princess Cruise was great. Luckily we had a balcony room so we saw it from the balcony. It's about a 3 hour turn around seeing The Tracy Arm Fjord. This inlet of the sea between high cliffs and mountains are stunning. It was named after the Secretary of Navy Benjamin Franklin Tracy. Tracy Arm... More
