Tracy Arm Scenic Cruising

Tracy Arm, like Glacier Bay, is another fjord in the southeast that features tidewater glaciers and steep 2000 foot granite walls that rise straight out of the water. This steep-sided fjord, 50 miles southeast of Juneau, is highlighted by a pair of tidewater glaciers and a gallery of icebergs that float down the length of it. This 30-mile arm was an ideal choice for novice kayakers as calm water is the norm here due to the protection the steep and narrow fjord wall provide. You are almost guaranteed of seeing seals inside the arm and there is a good possibility of spotting whales on the into the arm.
