Waggoner Guide

The Waggoner Guide has been guiding boaters to spectacular Northwest destinations since 1994. From Olympia, WA to Ketchikan, AK, the guide is referred to by boaters as The Bible for Northwest Cruising.

The History of the Waggoner Name

About 1584, the Dutch Pilot Lucas Janszoon Waghenaer published a volume of navigational principles, tables, charts, and sailing instructions, which served as a guide for other such books for the next 200 years.

Waggoner has worked tirelessly to build our community. As a result, we are now offering a robust and beneficial membership package, where together we can exchange, educate, enrich, encourage, and entertain within the community.
