Waggoner celebrates 30 years of bringing boaters the most up-to-date information for the waters and destinations of British Columbia, Southeast Alaska, and Washington State. Articles celebrating this year’s theme, “Milestones in Northwest Boating,” are found throughout the 30th Anniversary, 2024 edition.

Waggoner Cruising Guide is the top selling, annually updated guidebook for recreational boaters of the Pacific Northwest. Reference maps, area maps, and dock diagrams are included, along with Local Knowledge tips. Detailed dock diagrams, noted with slip numbers/letters, allow boaters to easily find their assigned guest moorage. Contact information and amenities are listed for each marina, along with local activities. All of the needed information and helpful photos are gathered by 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, including clearing customs for U.S. and Canada border crossings, weather resources and interpretation, marine communications, anchoring, and much more. Boaters look to the Waggoner for the latest procedures for marine parks, permits, and marina moorage requirements. The blue pages in the back of the book include a list of resources and phone numbers, a list of fuel dock locations, B.C. pumpouts, and a list of the no-wake speed zones not found on nautical charts.


The Waggoner Guide includes world-famous cruising grounds like the San Juan Islands, Princess Louisa Inlet, Misty Fiords, Fiordland National Park, and Glacier Bay National Park. And, yes, Waggoner directs you to all the bear viewing sites and glaciers. Seasonal no-go whale water zones are also noted.


The Waggoner Cruising Guide is known among recreational boaters as the bible and must have for northwest boating. Spiral bound, 528 pages, with over 300 maps.
