Nestled between 914 m (3,000 ft) high granite walls, the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord weaves through the Tongass National Forest for roughly 35 miles. The coastline is dotted with waterfalls created by melting snowcaps and trees sprouting at odd angles from rocky outcrops. You will have ample time to admire the landscape and perhaps catch sight of a few native animals as you cruise through this port.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
The Sawyer Glaciers at the end of Tracy Arm may not be the most famous glaciers in Alaska but many visitors find them to be the most dramatic. Framed by mountains on either side, the glaciers are often bathed in a light mist that amplifies the blue hue of the ice.
|Get to know the locals: The glaciers are home to black and brown bears, wolves, deer and moose. Look for seals and whales in the fjord's icy waters and frequent bald eagle appearances overhead.|
|See the fjord's many icebergs from close up as the ship manoeuvres around them. The texture and colour of the ice is quite different from the smooth stuff you put in drinks!|
