Tracy Arm Fjord & Sawyer Glacier Cruise

Tracy Arm Sawyer GlacierGlaciers from the Mountains to the Sea, Fjords. Huge Icebergs & Towering Waterfalls. Journey through one of the most dramatic and scenic places in the world a must-see trip!

Easy access from Juneau via 25-50 passenger vessel, complete with warm cabin, galley, facilities, large windows. You'll cruise from Juneau's harbor south along the protected waters of the Inside Passage to this narrow fjord with twists and turns for over 30 miles of scenic beauty, where the mountains meet the sea.

Your cruise culminates in spectacular views of the twin tidewater Sawyer Glaciers, which make for even more dramatic photos when they calve (towering blocks of ice fall into the tidewater). Your captain will navigate as close as the ice floe allows, stopping for an extended stay at the face of the glacier during lunch before the return trip to Juneau.

Tracy Arm Fjord

Watch for seals sunning on the icebergs, bald eagles soaring above the cliffs peppered with mountain goats, birds, and watch for occasional whales and bears and on the way in. The scenery is spectacular. Overcast days with clouds and mist only heighten the drama of the fjord and at the glacier intensify the glacial blue color.

How does Tracy Arm compare to other must-see sites like Glacier Bay and Denali? In the Greatland of Alaska, home to Glacier Bay, Denali and endless mountain ranges, how does Tracy Arm measure up to the "must see" status? As great as the other places are, the viewers stand at a distance and are on the outside looking in. Tracy Arm is intimate, dramatic, and so close you can touch it.
