My Favorite SE Alaskan adventure-Tracy Arm Fjord!

We had such an adventure with True Alaskan Tours on our Tracy Arm Fjord tour. If you are in Juneau, this is a MUST! We had a beautiful, sunny day to see all that nature had to offer! We saw a coastal brown bear, black bear, harbor seals, and humpback whales as we cruised to the fjord! We encountered crystal blue icebergs from the minute we entered the fjord. And then came the view of the glaciers--magnificent! Our world seemed so small as we cruised the fjord. The staff was knowledgeable and shared much interesting facts along the way.

A must do experience while in Juneau

We had a wonderful experience on our Tracy Arm Fjord day trip. The crew were terrific, very friendly and super knowledgeable. We really appreciated the funny and informative comments made by our tour guide Sherrie. Her enthusiasm was infectious. The boat was super comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, and the food was basic but good. The Captain spent some extra time with the humpback whales we encountered on the way down and on the way back. We also saw mountain goats and harbor porpoises. But most of all, the scenery was spectacular.

Out of the World !!!

My husband and I did the Tracy Arm Fjord and Glacier Explorer tour and it is by far the best tour in my life. The crew were super friendly and the places we saw are beyond what words could describe. If there are even more stars I would give them. The Tracy Arm Fjord was the most breathtakingly beautiful place I have ever seen. We were even able to hear the ice cracking down. There were so many ice bergs floating and we even spotted waterfalls. Tracy Arm Fjord is such a delight to the eyes. Must must must do when you are in Juneau.

The Best Juneau Alaska Shore Excursion!

The sled dog summer camp was one of the favorite shore excursions for my family and me (all 3 of my kids are in their 20s). Chad and Jaime led an excellent tour and we learned so much about the Iditarod! We got to go on a ride led by 12 beautiful Alaskan Huskies. This was such a blast! At the end we got to hold puppies - it was hard to leave them. And their homemade chocolate chip cookies were darn good too. I highly recommend this shore excursion - it was tied with the Hubbard Glacier tour as the top two shore excursions we took from the Holland America line up to Alaska.
