Amazing. We were lucky to have good weather and see the glacier clearly. It's so blue! We also got to see it calve.

At the end of the long and amazing Tracy Arm, which is like a northern grand canyon you find the two Sawer Glaciers. there actually two glaciers thee one out of the East and one out of the North.
These are very busy and active glaciers with lots of calving all day long. They turn the calving off at night!! Hope you don;t believe that.
Usually your boat or ship will focus on one of the glaciers and some have small boats to give yo better access to the glacier and the ice flows.
You will be dodging small to very large icebergs.
Combining the experience of the glaciers and the weaving through Tracy Arm is a fantastic day of adventure.
On one of my trips we had the company of a pod of Orcas for most of the journey
Don't miss this adventure

Although we were disappointed that there was little calving going on (late September), the glacier viewing is outstanding. Sea lions were abundant on the icebergs.

Although we did not see any calving, which we were looking forward to it was absolutely beautiful. The water changed colors at least 3 times and was so calm you could see the reflection of the surrounding mountains in it. Just beautiful!

We were fortunate to see the face of this glacier and calving while on our Holland America cruise. Our day included cruising into Tracy Arm Fjord and then turning the ship around at the opening of the Glacier and cruising back. It was a simply amazing day and made some amazing photos.
