Join us on this easy but exciting camping and sea kayaking trip. We will spend two full days and nights exploring Tracy Arm Fjords and the Terror Wilderness. Explore icebergs, glaciers, waterfalls, and wildlife viewing to the max! We will paddle through steep fjords looking for clues on what the glaciers left behind. This adventure gives us a glimpse back in time of how glaciers carved valleys, fjords, and the majestic landscapes of Southeast Alaska.
Juneau - Endicott Arm
Early van transfer from your local accommodations and transport to our company warehouse for a safety briefing and gear orientation. We will then head downtown to the Adventure Bound boat dock, load our kayaks and gear, and enjoy a two hour boat cruise through the Stephens Passage and to the entrance of Tracy Arm. From there, we will do a half-day paddle before setting up camp for the night in a glacially carved valley beside a flowing river. Join us for an unforgetable exploration of Tracy Arm Wilderness. Explore icebergs, glaciers, waterfalls, and wildlife viewing to the max! We will paddle through steep fjords looking for clues on what the glaciers left behind. This adventure gives us a glimpse back in time of how glaciers carved valleys, fjords, and the majestic landscapes of Southeast Alaska.
The day will be spent kayaking deeper into Tracy Arm Fjord towards the Sawyer and South Sawyer glaciers while taking in the scenery and looking for wildlife. Enjoy the views of blue icebergs, steep cliffs and large waterfalls. We possibility see also harbor seals, whales, bears, eagles, arctic terns and mountain goats. We camp in view of a calving tidewater glacier
We will wake up early to paddle amongst the icebergs and get a closer look at the glacier from the kayaks. We explore the wondrous Ford's Terror - a spectacular fjord accessible only through a narrow passage off Endicott Arm. Rushing tidal currents and whirlpools prevent us from entering when the tide flows in and out. We must wait for slack water to enter this paradise. (Seaman H.R. Ford didn't wait, back in 1889, and found himself terrorized by the rushing tidal waters!) Both brown and black bear can sometimes be seen roaming the narrow beaches and tide flats. Mountain goats have even been sighted on this rugged coastline. We will then start to paddle back towards the mouth of Tracy Arm. In the early afternoon, we will board the Adventure Bound boat with our kayaks and then enjoy an even closer look at the glaciers from the safety of a larger vessel. After sightseeing, the Adventure Bound boat will return us to downtown Juneau in the late evening.
