Experience the Tracy Arm Wilderness area, including exciting close-up views of the majestic Sawyer Glaciers. As the ship enters Tracy Arm, she will glide to a brief stop to allow you to board a deluxe, waterjet-powered catamaran, designed for optimum viewing and delicate maneuvering. Bring your camera to capture the many wonders you'll discover around each bend of this serpentine, 30-mile fjord. The onboard naturalist will inform you about the area as you trace the bases of cliffs that rise 4,000 feet above the bay. Enjoy an up-close view of the North Sawyer Glacier with frequent stops to view wildlife, and hear the "white thunder" as immense ice spires break from the South Sawyer Glacier and crash into the bay.
