Default Tracy Arm vs. 26 Glaciers cruise in Whittier

The cruise I'm booked on doesn't have port times in Juneau to allow for the Tracy Arm tour with Adventure Bound that is highly recommended. So I am thinking of doing the 26 Glaciesr cruise out of Whittier and was wondering if someone could compare the two for me. The 26 Glaciers cruise goes thru the Esther Passage. Is this anywhere near as scenic as Tracy Arm?
Thank you.

Not sure about "why" the comparism, unless are you open to changing your current booking to have the time for a Tracy Arm add on??

They are completely different anyway. Prince William Sound is all glaciers, as you can see, 26 on your particular selection. This particular tour, with Phillips, does jump around a lot, but does also offer spectacular scenery. I do prefer another company which goes to few glaciers, but allows more time at the ones seen, including Ester Passage which is a definate highlight.

Tracy Arm is a very small portion glacier viewing. You do have the potential to see significantly more wildlife.

The comparison was just to see if it would be anything like what I was missing. As far as which company does the best Prince William Sound tour that includes Esther Passage, are you allowed to recommend your favorite? If so, please, I would appreciate your opinion.
Thank you.

I go with Prince William Sound tours the most. But also have done Phillips and Major Marine.
