Welcome to America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association (AGLCA). 

We are the one-stop-shop for all things "Great Loop"!

What is the Great Loop? -- It's a 6,000 mile circumnavigation of the eastern portion of North America that our members cruise aboard their own boats.  The route, which is primarily comprised of protected waterways, takes you through 15+ states and provinces, and includes the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Chesapeake Bay, the New York State Canals, the Great Lakes, the Canadian Heritage Canals, the inland rivers of America’s heartland, and the Gulf of Mexico.

Whether you're dreaming about, planning for, currently cruising, or have completed the Great Loop, you've come to the place where information, inspiration, and camaraderie abounds!
