Tracy Arm, South Sawyer Glacier

Jul 02, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


Today was the most amazing day and a wonderful conclusion to an equally wonderful week. The sun was brilliantly shining as we explored South Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm with our expedition landing craft. Harbor seals lounged on icebergs, the face of the glacier was calving, and the geology of the area was beautifully on display as we gazed in awe.

An exhilarating polar plunge followed lunch. Several brave souls took to the frigid glacier waters and will travel home tomorrow with stories of swimming in Southeast Alaska. Kayaking was offered and guests enjoyed a leisurely paddle in the sunshine. Afterward, cocktails and conversation were had by all on the sun deck as we cruised out of Tracy Arm and on toward Juneau.
