If you have only one day in the Juneau area, take a cruise to Tracy Arm. Turquoise and emerald green waters. Glaciers that will take your breath away. Mile-high rock walls. Brilliant blue icebergs (chunks that break off from the glaciers) floating by.

The tour group we did it with was Adventure Bound, and I would highly recommend them. The group set off in two ships, each with about 30 people. The ship below was our sister vessel. It was a long, leisurely journey; we spent over an hour just standing in place watching ice calve (break) off the glacier.
