It's a long boat ride to Tracy Arm (about 3 hours each way), but well worth it. Some pleasant scenery along the way, but once you get into Tracy Arm, and especially when you arrive at Sawyer Glacier, the scenery is awe-inspiring.
Loved the boat trip! Don't forget to pack layers as it does get cold out by the glaciers, and binoculars are helpful too!
This tour of Tracy Arm is incredibly beautiful and scenic.The mountains, waterfalls, impressive rock formations, and the long glacier stop were plenty.Great captain and crew. One nice couple on board became engaged at the glacier!
We had an AWESOME time on the adventure bound boat today. Alissa, Colton and Debbie were a fantastic crew and answered all of our questions. We were lucky enough to see a black bear, seals, porpoises and two humpback whales (and an Orca, confirmed by the harbor master). We also saw amazing icebergs, hundreds of waterfalls and two massive glaciers. Would definitely take this boat again and highly recommend. Oh, and Alissa, Sup?
Fantastic experience! If you have half a day to spend in Juneau, do not hesitate to book this tour. Tracy Arm Fjord is breathtaking, Sawyer Glacier is amazing. The glacier calved several times while we were there. This is a one-of-a-kind experience. A chance to get up close and personal to a glacier, waterfalls and the beauty of nature at its finest. Captain Steve and crew were the best. Very well educated on the area, open to questions and just flat out nice people. They had made-to-order sandwiches, snacks, coffee, hot cocoa, water, etc. for a reasonable price, or you can bring your own. Don't pass this adventure up!
We enjoyed a wonderful trip, this tour is well worth doing. The Sawyer and South Sawyer glacier are amazing and seeing some of the wildlife is a bonus. The crew are all so knowledgeable. Thank you
Great crew, good lunch, beautiful scenery. We didn't see any wildlife but it certainly wasn't because the crew didn't try. The glacier was spectacular. Alissa and Debbie were very informative and we learned quite a bit. Totally recommend this trip as a great way to spend the day seeing Juneau from the water.
Melissa is a fantastic captain and Nick a wonderful deck hand. She maneuvered the boat so close to the waterfall that you were able to get a cup of glacier water to drink. This was an awesome experience. We were able to sea an Orca whale, a couple of mountain goats, about a hundred seals and many icebergs plus a calving event at the Sawyer Glacier. This is a must do when in Juneau!
This is my favorite excursion from Juneau! We always recommend this trip to family and friends that visit us and it never disappoints. The captain and crew are great. The fjord and glaciers are stunningly beautiful. I have done it 5 or 6 times and would do it again!
A trip with Adventure Bound will not only be one of the highlights of your trip to Juneau but will produce memories to last a lifetime! You will leave civilization behind and enter a pristine region where Mother Nature still rules. The scenery is jaw dropping and awe inspiring! In addition, we saw bears, seals, and mountain goats. The Captain has made the trip to the fjords and glaciers thousands of times and is intimately familiar with the region. The Captain and crew are extremely accommodating and do an excellent job of seeing to passenger needs and answering questions. The boat ride was comfortable, even in rough conditions. No one got seasick. The trip is unhurried and you most definitely get your money's worth. This trip was money extremely well spent. I've traveled to more than thirty countries and forty nine states and this was one of the most incredible experiences I've had. Book it! Go! The memories will last a lifetime!!
