Hello and Welcome! My name is John, and I'm
here to tell you all about this epic boating adventure
that is 1,500 miles longer than the longest river in the
world! If you include Canada, your voyage will extend
some
2,000 miles longer than the Nile River!
  This voyage is made possible by a series of safe,
protected inland lakes, rivers, waterways and canals
that are connected to give us one continuous
navigable voyage around the entire eastern portion
of North America. In the process (thanks to the many
Locks along the way), your boat will reach a height
between 569' to 840' above sea level, depending on
the route options you take.
Just Imagine. . .  Spending 6 months to a year or longer, living and cruising on your own boat for a
distance of more than 5,600 miles through 20 U.S. States
(or more), with the option of cruising 2 Provinces of Canada
on the safest most scenic, exciting and continuous waterway in the world. This is an epic boating adventure! 1,500 miles
longer than the Nile, 3,000 miles longer than the Mississippi; and more incredible than you can possibly imagine.
      It is in fact a "loop". It is a
Great Loop, one in which you can start and end your voyage exactly in the same place without
ever having to make a U-turn!
      From French Quebec to the French Quarter, and from Miami to Mackinac Island, you can cruise as near the Arctic Circle
as you can the Tropics of the Equator; without ever having to face the perils of a wide open sea. From unspoiled
unforgettable landscapes, seascapes and mountainscapes, this is without doubt your ultimate escape. And the best news of
all. . . It is right here in your own backyard! It is cruising so very far, yet always close to home!
