Our Guarantee

At The Boat Galley, we have only one mission: to make boat life better.

Everyone on The Boat Galley team is a liveaboard cruiser and we understand the challenges that come with life on a boat. When our team encounters frustration, we come up with practical and innovative solutions.

This is how we came to radically reinvent the cruising guide, how we developed better reference materials, and how we created affordable, in-depth online courses that help us share our extensive knowledge with you at your pace.

Try our products and see. If they don't make your boat life better, use our 30-day FREE no-hassle return guarantee.


Make cruising the ICW easy -- know exactly where to find everything you need.

A traditional cruising guide isn't designed for quick answers!

Instead of reading through pages of text, use our revolutionary new Quick Reference to easily find . . .

  • WHAT is the name of that bridge, WHEN does it open, and HOW do I call it?

  • WHERE is the nearest anchorage with N (E, S, or W) protection

  • WHERE to get fuel, water, or a haul out

  • And more!

Separate mile-by-mile tables for the ICW let you quickly find just what you need:

  • bridge names, heights, opening schedules, and how to contact

  • anchorages including wind/wave protection directions, depth, tide range, current, swell, and availability of places to walk dogs

  • inlets to/from the Atlantic Ocean

  • free docks

  • fuel, propane, water, trash, and pump outs

  • navigation alerts warning of shoaling, fast currents, and other hazards

  • haulout facilities including maximum beam

BONUS: Get 20% off Aqua Map chart packages -- details below.

NEW in Second Edition

  • Anchoring protection directions
  • Suitability for dog walking
  • Updated (March 2022) bridge schedules and nav alerts
  • Heavier front and back covers
More Info

Cockpit companion to keep readily at hand to answer questions during the day’s run such as:

  • What's the name of this bridge? When does it open? How do I call it?
  • Where's the nearest place I could anchor?
  • Where could I go outside or come back in?
  • If I want to push on a bit, how far is the next decent anchorage?
  • Where's the next fuel stop?
  • Oops! I need a pumpout! Where?
  • This problem is going to require a haulout. Where's the nearest place that can handle my boat? How do I contact them?
  • Which side of that dredge is it safe to go on?

Information is arranged by topic, then by location. No need to read through pages of text to find just what you need -- simply look in the appropriate column for what you seek and discover where it's available!

Invaluable supplement to cruising guides for use underway.

Includes quick reminders on dredging and horn signals.

Great resource!

We purchased the PDF version of the guide as we were on passage with our boat and had no address to receive a physical book. It is nice that both physical and digital options are available. The guide is great and packed full of very useful information. It is also easy to navigate from section to section in the PDF version. Possibly not as easy or direct as the physical book, but still quite easy to use.

I loved the first edition so much - I bought the second edition

The first edition was so fantastic - that I didn't hesitate to buy the second edition when it came out! The latest information is always best and the added section on where to provide exercise for your dog is awesome!
