***I didn't keep a record nor did I keep the daily paper so I can't comment on the temperatures -- at least there was no rain.
Juneau/Tracy Arm:The much anticipated excursion to Tracy Arm was finally here. We have been to Tracy Arm twice before: one trip was via a cruise line transit and the other was an excursion with Adventure Bound. For this particular trip to Tracy Arm we were going to offload from the ship onto an Allen Marine vessel.
Our tour was operated by Allen Marine, a company that we have used on other excursions. Like past experiences, we have nothing but respect for this company. The captain and crew were wonderful and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the surrounding area. Some of the crew members grew up in Alaska and shared first-hand stories of their life experiences. The vessel was clean and offered ample viewing for everyone.
I was concerned a bit as to how far we would get into Tracy Arm. Our weather was wonderful and we were able to get into Sawyer and South Sawyer. I'm so glad that we booked the excursion early and were able to see the wonderful things that we did. Below are a few pictures of the scenery, marine life and glacier calving. There is also a picture of an orca that had just killed a seal. The crew were so excited to see the orca as they usually don't find an orca in the Arm.
More pictures to follow in the next post.
