Tracy Arm Fjord Alaska
Board the 56' Adventure Bound or the 65' Captain Cook for an Unforgettable Glacier and Fjord
Tracy Arm, a classic fjord, has it all- tidewater and elevated glaciers,
breathtaking mountains and sheer rock walls that reach up over a
mile high with waterfalls that tumble down to the emerald green
water, and Alaska's largest icebergs.
Watch for whales, bears, mountain goats, hundreds of harbor seals,
and a variety of birds such as eagles, arctic terns, kittiwakes, and
Our vessels have stable, smooth riding, ocean going hulls for the best cruise to Tracy Arm and
Sawyer Glacier. A full walk-around deck and large cabin windows assure unobstructed views
and great photo opportunities. Personal attention is unsurpassed.
Our vessels are United States Coast Guard inspected. They are
equipped with long range radios, emergency beacons, Sonar, Radar,
GPS and inflatable lifesaving equipment. Steven Weber, owner and
operator, has over 35 years experience and is a licensed U.S.
Merchant Marine officer.
Concern for the Environment
We comply with Federal regulations regarding waste management and wildlife viewing. Wildlife
viewing is done with careful consideration for the animals.
Our heated cabins are fully enclosed with cushioned seating. To ensure the comfort of every
guest aboard, we do not overbook our cruises. Any number of guests may enjoy our full walkaround outside deck.
Food and Drink
Food is available for purchase on board, and guests are welcome to bring their own. Prices are
fair, not added to your fare and called "free". Sandwiches are made fresh for you by your
deckhands. Choose from ham or turkey, with lettuce, tomato, swiss or cheddar cheese,
mayonnaise, or mustard on a hoagie roll. Your deckhand would be happy to make a sandwich
for you without meat and add in extra cheese or vegetables.
We have fresh brewed coffee, hot cocoa, tea, soda, and water. Also choose from a variety of
potato chips, candy, and crackers. We recommend that guests who are vegetarian, vegan, or
have special diets bring their own food.
Located about 45 miles south of Juneau, Tracy Arm, a classic fjord, stands out as a "must
see"for any Alaska vacation. Full day cruises depart from downtown Juneau and includes
Alaska'sgreatest combination of mountains, waterfalls, wildlife, glaciers and icebergs.
The face of Sawyer is a little more than a half mile wide, so there is plenty of space for both of
our vessels to be at the face of the glacier. We turn off our engines and generators at the
glacier so you can listen to the ice crackle and pop and take in the sights uninterrupted while
you wait for the glacier to calve.
The icebergs are framed by sheer mountain peaks that reach
over 7,000 feet. Waterfalls flow from the ice covered mountains
to the jade colored inland sea.
The main focus of the cruise is the fjord and the glacier, and the
wildlife is an added bonus. We do our best to find you mountain
goats, whales, bears, harbor seals, and birds.
Tracy Arm is the summer home for pigeon guillemots, kittiwakes and arctic terns.
Mountain goats are typically seen on the rocky slopes near Sawyer Glacier. Mountain goats are
more likely to come farther down the mountain on cloudier days.
The ice in Tracy Arm interferes with the sonar of whales, so it is the perfect place for hundreds
of harbor seals to have their pups in the summer months.
