Tracy Arm & En Route to Juneau

Jul 21, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


We awoke today, our last day of the trip, in the majesty of Tracy Arm. As the steeping walls of the fjord loomed around us, we boarded our Zodiacs for a voyage to the domain of Sawyer Glacier. There we watched as walls of ice calved into the sea. Afterward, we returned to the ship where the brave embarked on a plunge of polar nature. After the plungers returned from the frosty waters of the fjords, we left Tracy Arm headed to our final destination of Juneau, journals full of adventures and hearts filled with travel.
