Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.
Experience this one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore the very best of the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness region, located 60 miles southeast of Juneau. Your adventure includes exciting, close-up views of breathtaking Endicott Arm Fjord and majestic Dawes Glacier, on this in-depth exploration of Mother Nature at her best. Board your high-speed catamaran directly from your cruise ship and relax in the spacious cabin, surrounded by panoramic windows. Endicott Arm is a classic fjord, with turquoise tidewater, elevated glaciers, and a towering rock wall over a mile high. Cruise beneath cliffs that rise 4,000 feet above the sea and thrill to the sensation as the vessel cruises almost directly under a plunging waterfall. The area teems with wildlife and the waters are home to humpback whales and harbor seals. The boat makes numerous photo stops and an onboard naturalist provides a wealth of information about the area.
Special Notes:In the event unpredictable ice conditions preclude your cruise ship from entering Endicott Arm, the tour will be modified to explore Tracy Arm, a fjord and tidewater glacier of equal beauty. To fully enjoy the outside observation decks, participants are encouraged to bring a warm, rainproof jacket, hat and gloves. The tour will disembark next to your cruise ship in downtown Juneau. This tour is only available on select voyages- May through early September.
