TRACEY ARM FJORD GLACIER CRUISE
$145 Per Person
Board this comfortable boat, a vessel which
lends itself to this type of expedition so well. The Tracy Arm Fjord
contains scenery that rivals that of the famous Glacier Bay. Within
Tracy Arm, steep-walled granite canyons plummet 2,000 feet into
incredibly deep and narrow fjords; we're talking rocks to the waterline
here. The fjords wind past waterfalls and glaciers to massive ice
fields. It is very likely harbor seals may be spotted on the hundreds of
icebergs. Humpback whales are a common sight, as are killer whales.
Frequently mountain goats can been seen climbing the slopes. Often you
will see bald eagles soaring overhead.
At the end of the fjord is an unbelievable view of South Sawyer Glacier. The captain will bring the catamaran as close to the glacier as the ice floe allows.
During your ride, an on-board naturalist will fill you in on the history of the typography of the land and the formation of glaciers. The naturalist will also be able to give you history into the Tlingit people and their culture.
