Debark/Embark: The ship doesn't dock here, but will sail as close to the fjord as possible

Satellite Map

Tracy Arm is a fjord 45 miles south of Juneau. The area covers 653,179 acres and consists of two deep and narrow fjords: Tracy Arm and Endicott Arm. Both fjords are over 30 miles long and one-fifth of their area is covered in ice. During the summer, the fjord has considerable floating ice ranging from the size of a three-story building to hand-size pieces.

The twin Sawyer Glaciers, North Sawyer and South Sawyer, are located at the end of Tracy Arm. Once an hour on average, slabs of these great glaciers calf and tumble into the saltwater below.

The water here is a glacial blue due to microscopic sediment.

The wildlife in the area includes black and brown bears, deer, wolves, harbor seals, and a variety of birds, such as arctic terns and pigeon guillemots.

The cruise ship does not actually dock at Tracy Arm, but the ship's captain will bring you as close as possible to the unparalleled beauty that surrounds you everywhere you look.
