Great Loop Route

The America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association (AGCLA) is a community of boating enthusiasts who share a common passion for embarking on a unique and challenging journey known as the Great Loop Route. This iconic waterway adventure involves circumnavigating the eastern part of the United States, encompassing various inland waterways, rivers, lakes, and coastal waters. The loop typically begins in the eastern part of the United States, often starting in Florida, and continues through the Intracoastal Waterway, the Great Lakes, and numerous other interconnected water routes. It’s a remarkable and demanding voyage, spanning thousands of miles, offering boaters the opportunity to experience diverse landscapes, cultures, and climates.

The complexity of the Great Loop Route lies in the wide range of water conditions and navigational challenges it presents. Boaters must navigate through shallow, narrow channels, cross open seas, and pass through numerous locks and bridges, all while adapting to varying weather patterns and seasonal changes. The route’s diversity means that boaters need to make informed decisions regarding the best paths to take depending on the time of year and weather conditions.

This is where having a boating coach, such as Captain’s Coaching, can be immensely valuable. Captain’s Coaching offers expert guidance to boaters embarking on the Great Loop, helping them plan their journey, choose the optimal routes, and make critical decisions based on real-time weather data and other factors. These experienced coaches can provide insight into the safest and most enjoyable routes, helping boaters avoid potential hazards, save time, and make the most of their adventure. They offer personalized advice on navigation, provisioning, and even lifestyle considerations, ensuring that boaters have a smoother and more enjoyable journey while also enhancing their safety on the water. For anyone considering the Great Loop, having Captain’s Coaching as a resource can significantly enhance the overall experience and peace of mind throughout this remarkable voyage.

Great Loop Route Reviews

What customers are saying about our boat delivery services.

Highly recommend Captain Will. We are new boat owners and we are so happy to have hired Captain Will to show us things we never thought we could learn without practicing for months and months. Not only did we learn them but he taught us in less than 4 hours. He even took the time to walk us through some pretty important mechanics of our boat, showed us some tricks of our gps system and got us docking our boat in no time. Even backing it in and almost “parallel parking” it. Such a great experience and a great Captain. We learned so much today and happy to know that we are gaining the skills to be more confident and knowledgeable on the water. Thank you Captain Will. Look forward to next time in just a few weeks.

I can not tell you how much fun I had today with Captain Will on top of learning how and practicing how to dock, anchor and stern steering with manipulating the bow. Capt. Will is calm and direct with his helping cues. Hearing "do not over think this" let me know I got it, now do it. I think any one who is still a little " stressed " coming home to get back on the lift, would be happy with the results from a session with him. I know you will learn something new that will make boating much easier ‼️ Thank you, Capt. Will for all your help and a great day❣.

Will is a great instructor who will help improve your skills whether you are a new boater, experienced boater, or someone who has some skills but is new to Florida conditions. He is patient, smart, an amazing person to work with, and you will enjoy your time with him. His calm and pleasant teaching manner will push you to learn, gain confidence, and improve your skills. I highly recommend him for his experience and knowledge.

Captain Will turned me into a boater. I had zero experience but after several lessons, I feel comfortable taking out my first boat on the water. Captain Will is knowledgeable and patient. He will make sure that you feel comfortable in as many scenarios as possible. I highly recommend him for any level of boater.
