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.
