Williams Cove & Tracy Arm Wilderness Area

Sep 12, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


Our day on board National Geographic Venture started inside of Williams Cove as guests had the chance to stretch their legs on a variety of hikes, including a bushwhacking hike that got up to a peat bog, or muskeg. After lunch, we cruised up Tracy Arm to the South Sawyer Glacier, where we deployed our Zodiacs for an up-close look at the glacier and bergs in the arm. Harbor seals, mountain goats, and glacier calving were some of the amazing things we got to witness.
