Welcome to our Community page. We encourage you to read about Puget Sound Pilots in your community, browse our photo gallery, check out our resources for recreational boaters, and share your thoughts on Facebook.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts, ideas and suggestions because pilotage means different things to different people.

  • To environmentalists, it is the first line of defense in protecting Puget Sound.
  • To ship captains, it is a welcome relief from the pressures of moving ships in confined spaces.
  • To the Coast Guard, it is the primary means of safely moving thousands of ships in a large and busy district.
  • To recreational boaters, it keeps the marine highways safer for all who travel there.
  • To all Washington residents, it is the key to balancing the economic benefits and environmental risks of marine commerce.

Members of the Puget Sound Pilots are active in the community providing information on marine-related issues, environmental awareness and boater safety.
