Crossing Dixon Entrance

Dixon Entrance, straddling the British Columbia-Alaska border, is the northernmost “gate” of the Inside Passage. In this segment of “Mastering the Inside Passage,” Laura Domela and Sam Landsman explore the challenges Dixon Entrance presents and how they manage their crossings.

We use these worksheets to help plan our Dixon Entrance crossings (PDFs here:  Dixon Entrance Weather Worksheet Page One Dixon Entrance Weather Worksheet Page Two). Links for each of the weather forecasts and reporting sites are located at the bottom of this page.
