Slowboat Webinars

Welcome to the Slowboat Webinar Series! These presentations cover a variety of topics—preparing a boat for the Inside Passage, clearing customs by boat, obtaining replacement parts in remote areas, navigating tidal rapids, selecting weather windows, and so much more. Our goal is to demystify cruising in the Pacific Northwest and empower cruisers to explore further in safety and comfort.

If you’re unsure where to start, try beginning here with our Inside Passage overview:
