We took the catamaran trip to Tracey Arm from the Volendam. We transferred to the smaller boat at sea and went up into Tracey Arm while the Volendam continued into Juneau. The catamaran took us to the Volendam at the end of the ercursion, so we only missed about 2 hours of time in this port. This excursions was an amazing experience. The small boat brought us through miles of incredible landscape filled with high peaks and waterfalls. We went right up next to a couple of the falls, so close you could almost touch them. Then we went over to the Sawyer glacier, saw it calving and saw seals on the ice. This was a beautiful trip. The Volendam also cruises into Glacier Bay, which was really wonderful, but the Tracey Arm trip is different and we were glad we had both opportunities. Very worth it. We needed several layers as it was cold and windy. They had some food (burgers) available to buy on the boat. This was a really fabulous experience.
We got into Juneau with plenty of time to shop and eat. We ate crab at Tracey's which is right near the ship. A picnic table and paper plate establishment with good crab. We had chowder, crab cakes (spicy) and crab legs, all really good. Then we went to the Red Dog Saloon for a drink and ended up staying the rest of the evening to listen to Brian sing old country (Johnny Cash) we had a great time there.

Allen Marine did a fabulous job on this Tracy Arm/Sawyer Glacier excursion. We saw killer whales, eagles, seals, beautiful waterfalls, etc. Sawyer Glacier was beautiful. They have a naturalist onboard and even scoop up a piece of glacier for you to feel/see up close. My only complaint is the cost is pretty hefty for a family of four.

We got in late into Juneau so part of our excursion was cancelled. We were meant to go Mendahall glacier and whale watching. So we just had a quick glance of the glacier and went to the whale watching boats. We saw humpback and killer whales and witnessed a beautiful sunset. The boat and staff were great.

The next day was in Juneau. We took the HAL tour "Best of Juneau Whale Watching/Mendenhal Glacier and Orca Point Lodge." This was a boat tour in the sound and we saw many whales. Lunch at the Orca Point lodge was quite good.

Hubby enjoyed the experience, but thought it was different from his expectations. He mentioned limited time for salmon fishing.

We didn't leave the ship in Juneau but we did buy the excursion to Tracy Arm and it was amazing, saw bears whales, a calving glacier and it was remarkable even if it had to go to Endicott instead of Tracy arm (still too much ice) My husband said he didn't know if we should have went on this because glacier bay was so much more amazing than we thought it would be. I would take it again.
