Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau

#2 of 249 in Parks in Alaska
Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
At the end of Tracy Arm Fjord are the mighty twin Sawyer Glaciers, which are actively calving. You can see chunks of ice, some the size of a building, breaking off and floating in the water. Harbor seals, mountain goats, bears, wolves, and deer are not uncommon sights. Along its 48 km (30 mi) length, the fjord offers views of the surrounding mountains, with numerous waterfalls cascading down the cliffs. Take a cruise down the fjord, but dress warmly. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Juneau holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tracy Arm Fjord and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We took the 5 Star rated Adventure Bound tour on the Captain Cook, and Captain Steve (the owner of 27 years) took us within 3 blocks (1/4 mile) of South Sawyer Glacier and sat there for apx one hour.....  more »
  • Absolutely amazing!! We took Captain Cook through Adventure Bound and are so happy we did! It was very well worth the cost! It was a 9 hour trip…the way there was admittedly much better than the way.....  more »
  • Tough to see how it had retreated, but a beautiful site! we were able to get very close on the boat and got some great pictures.  more »
  • Weather was beautiful!!!! Didn't get very close to Tracy Arm Fjord because it had calved. Still a beautiful sight. I want to go back!! Soon!!!!
  • Amazing tour, definitely worth the seven hours. Whales, dolphins, sheep, glacier calving.
  • Alaska was the best trip I have been on. I want to go back.
  • Spectacular!! Best excursion ever. Two glaciers, waterfalls & humpback whales. Lady captain manunvered the boat meticulously so that all aboard could see & enjoy everything.
  • One of the most scenic areas in Alaska. Absolutely world class, and every bit of what you'd hope to see in southeast Alaska. If you had to choose between Glacier Bay and Tracy Arm, I would choose Tracy Arm. It's that good.
