Alaskan Cruise with Kids – Part 2, Tracy Arm Fjord

Day 2

Juneau, Alaska. In Juneau, we decided to book an excursion on a small boat that traveled up the Tracy Arm Fjord to get up-close and personal with some glaciers, icebergs, and wildlife. Binoculars and maps were provided, and passengers are able to move from the warm interior cabin, with free hot chocolate, tea, and coffee, to the top of the boat which is open to both the elements and the spectacular views.

Bald eagles!!!

This 7-hour boat ride may not be ideal for all young children. Our young ones survived the boring parts because we were able to buy snacks and a couple of brand new stuffed animals (a grey wolf and a sea otter, in keeping with the Alaska theme) onboard. And mom survived because she got to sip her very own Glacierita—seriously, a margarita made with a chunk of glacier ice.
