We Depart from the Juneau waterfront, at the cruise ship docks. Departs 8:00 a.m., returning
at about 6 p.m.
We highly encourage you to make reservations early. Because there
are very few commercial tour or charter boats who enter Tracy Arm
Fjords, one of the most scenic wilderness areas in Alaska, our tours
book very quickly.
You can either bring your own lunch and snacks or
purchase food onboard. Allow about $11.00 for a box lunch that includes a
sandwich, chips, cookies and a beverage.
How do you see Southeast Alaska's Best Sights? Cruise with us to one of Alaska's finest wilderness sights:
Tracy Arm Fjord Glacier Cruise
Spectacular Tracy Arm Fjord, just south of Juneau Alaska, meanders into the
majestic Alaskan coastal mountains for thirty Tracy Arm seal iceberg miles, from
saltwater to glacier ice. This glacial fjord passes through nearly vertical rock
walls thousands of feet high, laced with waterfalls. Icebergs slide silently by,
translucent blue against the deep green sea water. Around one more twisting bend
of the chasm, lie the twin tidewater Sawyer Glaciers. The South Sawyer Glacier
is one of the most fascinating glaciers in Alaska: huge chunks of ice calve off
the glacier's face into the salt water on the average of once an hour. The scenery between Juneau and Tracy Arm's Sawyer Glaciers is rugged, picturesque, and teeming with wildlife. Visitors, photographers, and sea kayakers can expect to see seals, porpoise, sea lions, humpback whales, and killer whales, as well as black and brown bear, deer, wolves, moose, and mountain goats.
Fords Terror Cruise
Cruise from Juneau to Fords Terror Fjord
8:00 am Departure
Cruise to Fords Terror in Endicott Arms, returning to Juneau at approximately 5:30 pm.
Fords Terror is located 60 miles southeast of Juneau. It is named after a US Navy crewman who, in 1889, rowed a small boat into the narrow entrance of the granite fjord at low tide. When the tide rose, water was forced through the bottleneck entrance to the fjord, trapping Ford in its violent waves and massive colliding icebergs for six "terrifying" hours!
Enjoy the glacier views while enjoying your freshly made, delicious box lunch.
While it probably won't evoke fear, a visit to Fords Terror today will certainly prove to be a humbling and dramatic adventure. Experiencing the contrast between the fjord's sharp granite cliffs and Endicott Arm's gentle shoreline will only enhance the feeling of awe. Allow us to guide you to a sanctuary of solitude within the walls of history!
