“Better then Glacier Bay”
Review of Tracy Arm Fjord

Tracy Arm Fjord
Ranked #1 of 90 things to do in Juneau

Attraction details
Reviewed May 23, 2009

As a local that has been throughout Southeast Alaska, I would say this is the best value for an excursion from Juneau. A trip down to Tracy Arm is beautiful, and as far as I am concerned it is better $$$ spent then a day triip to Glacier Bay. The reason I say this is that you spend a lot of time getting into to the glaceirs at Glacier Bay, and it is a huge area. Tracy Arm on the other hand is this narrow fjord that has you close to the sides, allowing you to view bears, goats, seals and other wildlife. Its an absolutely beautiful experience. It is bound to be one of the highlights of your trip.

We were with Dawn Princess Cruise in Alaska on August 2008 and seeing the Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord in outstanding clear-sky weather was one of the best experiences in this cruise. It was absolutely spectacular day to behold according to Dean Paige, a naturalist, who was narrating the event as we navigate through the narrow passageway. It truly is once in a lifetime event to enjoy the wonders of the waterfalls, fjord walls, and glacially polished rocks. Absolutely an experience to remember for a long, long time.

dozens and dozens of waterfalls streaming from towering walls that surround you. gorgeous ice sculptures floating by. dramatic views abound. I'd pick this over Glacier Bay.

Went on the Captain Cook - great small boat...

We were on a cruise through Tracy Arm Fjord at the end of May 2007. It was absolutley stunning! We were a tad bit dissapointed that we did not get very close to either of the glaciers, but we were close enough to see them and get some nice photos. You need to go later in the season to get up close to them. The iceburgs floating in the water and the shear magnitude of the fjord is breathtaking.
