Tracy Arm Kayak Expedition

Wei-kayakers-by-south-sawyer

One of the world’s premier paddling destinations, the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness lies just sixty miles south of Juneau. John Muir described the beauty and grandeur of the area as “surpassing in some ways those of the far-famed Yosemite Valley.” This expedition allows you to explore the steep fjords, feel the awe-inspiring power of active tide-water glaciers, and provides an opportunity to see how the “lonely snowflake” has sculpted the majestic landscapes of Southeast Alaska.

  • Enjoy a round-trip boat cruise through the Humpback Whale territory of Stephens Passage
  • Observe calving tide-water glaciers and watch seal pups haul out onto floating icebergs
  • Paddle beneath 1000’ cliffs in a glacially carved fjord
