Tracy Arm

Tracy Arm is a spectacular fjord located in Southeast Alaska, USA. It is a narrow waterway that stretches for over 30 miles from the Inside Passage to the Sawyer Glacier. The fjord is known for its majestic scenery, with steep granite cliffs, massive icebergs, and numerous waterfalls.

Tracy Arm is part of the Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the United States, and is located about 50 miles south of Juneau, the state capital of Alaska. The fjord is surrounded by the Misty Fjords National Monument, which is a protected wilderness area.

Tracy Arm was named in 1868 by Captain George Davidson of the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey after the Secretary of the Navy, Benjamin Franklin Tracy. The fjord has long been a popular destination for cruise ships, as it offers a unique opportunity to view the Sawyer Glacier and its calving icebergs.

Tracy Arm is also an important area of wildlife habitat, with numerous species of birds and marine mammals, including gray whales and humpback whales. In addition, several species of fish, including salmon, can be found in the waters of the fjord.

Tracy Arm has a long history of human occupation. Archaeological evidence suggests that the area has been inhabited for thousands of years by the Tlingit people. The area has also been used for commercial fishing and logging, and the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness was established in 1980 to protect the area from further development.
