Cruising Destinations

A collection of articles covering power cruising destinations. We acknowledge that there are vast differences in the intended power cruising and voyaging plans of our readers and owners. A number of people plan to do the Great Loop, an extended cruise on inland U.S. rivers and canals, as well as the protected waters of the Intracoastal Waterway, that allows a circumnavigation of the eastern half of our country. Some dream of ocean passages to distant lands or island paradises, or of barging through the European canal and river systems. Others are interested in voyaging in the Western Hemisphere, up the British Columbia coast to Alaska, across the Gulf Stream to the Bahamas and Caribbean, north to the Canadian Maritimes and Newfoundland, or down south to Mexico and the coasts of Central and South America. Passagemaking takes many forms, and we address them all.
