Breathtaking views

We took an 8 day cruise with one day just in the Tracy Arm Fjord. This was so amazing and well worth standing in the cold to see the views. And the wildlife.

I did not leave the ship for the optional tour by tender that you never get off of to get a close up look. Tracy Arm Fjord was scenic and the ship got us close enough but it is not a place you'd need to spend more than a hour or two peering at, there is so much more to... More

I was doing photography up here and it is just amazing. It's a must see but of course impossible to get to without a boat. So plan accordingly

It was beautiful to see in person. You could smell the ice. The sun came out as we were touring and the ice heated up. The expansion cracks were audible form out balcony. Several section fell off into the water. Sad to see it crumble. Hope to make it back in my lifetime.

If you ever needed to sit back, relax, shut down, and tune into the beauty of Alaska, Tracy Arm Fjord is the place to do it. Not a word or photo can clearly illustrate the majesty of this gorgeous and peaceful place. Serene is an understatement.

Cruised through the Tracy Arm Fjord in the early morning hours. We had been advised to be on deck by 6:00 am to enjoy the approach to the Sawyer Glacier. Went out around 5:30 am and it was worth ever second. It was breathtaking even from a distance, and I had no idea how close we were going to get.... More

This was a wonderful and breathtaking place. We got very close to the glacier. Maybe the captain says this to everyone but we were told this is the closest they have gotten all year. After waking up at 5:00 am, I sat on my balcony with binoculars as we went through the passage. It took 2 hours to get to... More

We just didn't get close on our cruise. Being told it's up around the corner doesn't really help. Having seen Hubbard this is no comparison.
