The cruise through the Tracy Arm is an unforgettable experience of a lifetime. If one wishes to see the real beauty of Alaska, then this full day cruise is a must.\r
The cruise departed at 8 am from Juneau dock on a misty day with light rain and clouds on the horizon. Soon the capton announced the sighting of two whales. He steered the boat as close as possible for all to watch and click the diving whales.\r
As the boat entered the Tracy Arm channel, it was like entering a dream world, tall mountains covered with snow sending down waterfalls. Soon we sighted three bears, and beautifully shaped floating icebergs with birds sitting on them. Further the capton almost entered a very big waterfall for all to get a feel of the force of water cascading down.\r
As we progressed, the sea was filled with innumerable floating icebergs, some of them a deep sky blue colour. The capton took a full circle around two huge icebergs for all to see the blue coloured crystalline ice structure.\r
Finally, we reached the Sawyer glacier, a beautiful sight. We were taken very close so that we could experience the carvings from near. Later, we were taken to another arm of Sawyer glacier which though smaller, was a sight to watch.\r
Overall, this was a real adventure that we would like to do again, if possible.
