Waggoner Cruising Guide is the top selling updated guidebook for recreational boaters of the Pacific Northwest, covering the waterways, marinas, and anchorages of Washington State, British Columbia, and Southeast Alaska. Reference maps, area maps, and dock diagrams are included, along with photos and local knowledge tips. Detailed dock diagrams with lettering/numbering allow boaters to easily find their assigned guest moorage slip. Contact information and amenities are listed for each marina and things to see and do at these marine destinations.

The guidebook is updated annually with information from the editors and field correspondents, who visit marina and anchorage sites in person during the cruising season prior to publication. Chapter 1, the Compendium, covers all you need to know about boating in the Pacific Northwest and clearing customs for U.S. and Canada border crossings. In addition to customs information, important topics like anchoring, weather, and communications are also provided in detail. Boaters look to the Waggoner for the latest procedures, techniques on how to anchor, weather resources and how to interpret northwest weather forecasting, the rules of the road, and VHF communications protocol.

The 2023 edition features itineraries to some of the best boating destinations on the Inside Passage. The Waggoner Guide includes world-famous cruising grounds like the San Juan Islands, Princess Louisa Inlet, Misty Fiords, Fiordland National Park in British Columbia, and Glacier Bay National Park in Southeast Alaska. The Waggoner Guide is known among recreational boaters as the bible and a must-have for northwest boating. 528 pages; 285 maps.
