• Guided Flotillas for Ranger Tug Owners

    Helping Our Clients enjoy the boating lifestyle

    The Boating LIfestyle


    Boating is one of the most wonderful experiences known to man. The freedom, sense of adventure, comraderie, and wonderful memories make for a full life.  We wouldn't miss it for the world.  

    Why Cruise in the Northwest?

    The Northwest is one of the truly greatest cruising areas in the world.  The scenery, wildlife, people, variety of destinations are absolutely incredible.  This is truly one of the jewels on our planet that is begging to be explored.  And, It is right in our backyard!

    Meet new friends and share the experience!

    You would be amazed at the wonderful people you meet on a Ranger Tug.  We all have a similar boat with incredible capabilities. Share the dream with others!  Potluck dinner tonight with fresh clam chowder?

    Tug Travelers Philosophy

    Boating is a lot fun but you do need to practice certain things like docking.

    We want everyone to have fun on the water but also be safe.  We see so many people on the water that don't know what they are doing.  Many people just don't know how to run a boat or why to do certain things.  We want to help our clients become better and safer boaters. 

    Most people are a bit apprehensive docking.  It is not scary, just needs some practice.

    Know when to go

    Heading out on a boat trip is not like hopping on the freeway to go to Grandma's house.  The weather needs to be checked, the tides, the currents and especially the wind forecast.  We want to help you be an educated boater so that you are never caught in an uncomfortable situation.   We had checked tides and currents before transiting this narrow and shallow waterway to the right. 

    Safety is important

    Notice all crew members are wearing Personal Flotation Devices (PFD's) also known as life jackets?  Even the 4 legged crew members.
