Fine Edge Nautical & Recreational Publishing


The Waggoner Team is celebrating 30 years of guiding boaters through the extensive waterways of the Pacific Northwest, providing all the needed details for making the most of those incredible destinations.

Our 30th Anniversary. The theme for 2024, “30 Years of Milestones in Northwest Recreational Boating,” highlights how boating has changed – how we boaters handled the challenges of the past, and how we receive the opportunities of today and tomorrow. Watch for these special theme articles throughout the 2024 Waggoner, covering various topics about boating then and now. Our advertisers are helping us celebrate too, by displaying one of our colorful 30th Anniversary Markers.

Editors Lorena and Leonard Landon, and Publisher Mark Bunzel have put together another quality edition of the Waggoner, containing the hundreds of updates and changes that have taken place at marinas, parks, and favorite destinations over this last year. As part of the Waggoner Team, field correspondents consisting of eleven couples spent the summer visiting marinas and anchorages gathering updates and discovering new spots to anchor and special places to visit.

What’s New? Waggoner routinely receives appreciation from enthusiastic boaters for the many reference maps and dock diagrams found in the Waggoner. There are now over 300 maps/diagrams in the Waggoner Guide. Maps have been updated to reflect new dock configurations and dock numbering that have taken place at a number of marinas. New anchorages have been added, a list of bear-viewing sites, and a special winery destination with dock access that you won’t want to miss. If you are planning to visit Glacier Bay National Park, it’s important to read about the changes and procedures for visitation described in the Waggoner. In Chapter 1, the Compendium, you will find all the important changes regarding U.S. and Canadian Customs Points of Entry, the latest on NOAA and CHS Charts, and updated information about cellular, satellite, and internet services. Readability of the Waggoner has been enhanced with shaded header titles for major water areas to provide helpful geographic context. These are just some of the many changes and updates you will find in the 2024, 30th Anniversary edition of the Waggoner Cruising Guide.
