Jun 02, 2019 - National Geographic Quest
The first stop we made on our journey through Southeast Alaska was in Tracy Arm where we first went to see the North Sawyer Glacier from the comforts of National Geographic Quest. Majestic waterfalls all around us surely made for the start of an amazing morning and first day of the trip. We then went for Zodiac cruises up to the South Sawyer Glacier. Weaving our way in and out of beautiful ice sculptures in order to get to the face of the glacier and enjoying the sounds of the ice popping and the Harbor seals relaxing on ice flows, we enjoyed an amazing morning watching the calving of the glacier and all the thundering sounds it makes. Afterwards, we cruised out of the fjord and watched as whales spout and bears scavenged the shoreline for mussels and barnacles.
