We did a Tracy Arm small-boat excursion off of the Holland America Zuiderdam in August 2012. It was a gloriously clear day, and the scenery in the arm was just amazing. Really gave us a lot of good glacier viewing, along with waterfalls. Being on the small boat made the experience so much better. The excursion was not cheap, but it was well worth the money. Our girls loved being able to hold glacier ice and feel the splash of mountain waterfalls. Superb experience, and very professionally managed.

I've been at least 6 times (including one wedding charter) and never get tired of this day trip. We ALWAYS recommend this to visitors and everyone raves about it. It's less expensive and more accessible than a trip to Glacier Bay from Juneau. Any of several vendors will take you on a 3 hour each way comfortable boat ride (enclosed and with outside deck viewing) to a narrow fjord and you will get at least as close as this photo suggests to glaciers that may well calve before your very eyes. You will likely see humpback whales, possibly bears, and in spring there are seals and pups on the ice. I think all vendors serve a light lunch and have docents to explain the area and wildlife. You're home in time for dinner and you'll talk about it for a long time. Don't miss it.

Highly recommend visiting. The water on the way there is an amazing creamy blue and there are bright blue icebergs everywhere. The cruise ship was close enough to where we could hear the ice breaking off. We had a balcony in our room and it was great to sit outside with a hot beverage watching the beautiful scenery.
