Allen Marine Tours
Tracy Arm Fjord & Glacier Explorer - 5 Days per week (Tuesday through Saturday)
June 8 - September 4, 2010
6.5 hour tour departing from downtown Juneau
Departure time: 8:30 a.m.
Travel by jet boat to explore the very best of the Tracy Arm Wilderness Area including exciting close-up views of the majestic tidewater glaciers. Relax in the warm, spacious cabin as your experienced captain guides you through scenic passages and into the heart of a wild place that until recently has been buried for centuries by glacial ice. You will be able to glide quietly past curious seals and icebergs to get as close as possible to the ever-changing face of the glaciers.
Spend time topside on the observation deck where you will be able to enjoy this unforgettable experience with all your senses. You will cruise beneath cliffs that rise 4,000 feet above and feel the mist on your face as the vessel maneuvers almost directly under a plunging waterfall. Sometimes, you can feel the white thunder as immense spires of ice break from the glacier and crash into the sea.
Throughout the voyage your onboard naturalist will provide a wealth of information. You will also enjoy a picnic-style lunch and a variety of complimentary snacks and beverages.
