South Sawyer Glacier and Williams Cove

Jun 25, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


The day was spent exploring Tracy Arm Wilderness Area. This 24 mile long fjord has at its back the South Sawyer Glacier that today still graces the water’s edge; we explored this majestic and dynamic setting by Zodiac.  By midafternoon we were prepared for our first landing at the entrance to the fjord at William’s Cove, getting our first experience in the temperate rainforest as well as setting out by kayak to take in the sights of this pristine bay.

About the Author

Doug Gualtieri

Naturalist

Doug’s passion for the natural world started at an early age in his home state of Michigan. He received two biology degrees from Central Michigan University, and later went on to get a master’s degree in conservation biology. His education led him to study a diverse range of natural sciences, with an emphasis on ecology, animal behavior, and migratory birds. Shortly after leaving the academic world, Doug migrated north to Alaska with his trusty Siberian husky, Koda. He began working as a naturalist in Denali National Park in 1999. For over seven years he has shared his love of Alaska and Denali’s six million acres with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic guests, as trip leader for the Denali Land Extension based at the North Face Lodge deep within the park.
