Tracy Arm was the name on everyone’s tongue early this morning as the guests onboard National Geographic Sea Lion stirred from an easy night’s sail. But, as expeditions are known to do, plans evolved! Our bridge officers informed us shortly before breakfast that our destination had changed from the northern fjord to the southern fjord after reports of heavy ice in Tracy Arm – so Endicott it was!

A beautifully overcast day with little rain presented itself to us as we found a glacial fjord mostly free of ice! Dawes Glacier and all her glory allowed us to get up close and personal in our Zodiacs. Popping, cracking, and thunderous splashing rang out periodically across the water. The high walls and sporadic forests painted Endicott Arm into a spectacular vista for all to enjoy – what a truly incredible day!
