What a glorious day in Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness on our final day of this journey. We woke to beautiful clear skies as we passed Sumdum Glacier in Endicott Arm on our way to Dawes Glacier. As we sailed up the fjords towards the tidewater glacier, we were treated to spectacular waterfalls cascading into the blue water. Our first stop was a very low tide in Fords Terror. We could see rushing currents of the water exiting this fjord, making it impossible to proceed upriver due to the current. After lunch, we made it to Dawes Glacier, where we had our day’s activities. All guests were treated to a close-up view of this spectacular tidewater glacier with calving ice and plenty of harbor seals hauled out on ice floes. What a perfect way to end this epic expedition.
