Default Puget sound map

Hi I'm new to boating and would like to know if anybody has a link to a map of all the waterways etc... of the Puget sound.

The purpose is to:

#1 know where I can safely anchor overnight. I already know about the state parks and their fees etc but I just want to know where I can find free space.
#2 Know where it's prohibited for me to go in my 14' boat

You want a chart. NOAA publishes several covering Puget Sound. You can also download countless charting apps. I prefer Navionics. It is excellent.

Puget sound is really big. You might look at one of the cruising guides like Waggoneers as well (though they don't do a very good job of identifying anchorages).

Download the Navionics app. That will show you everything you need to see.

Though the inland sea is commonly known as Puget Sound that is only a part of it. The term Salish Sea is becoming more common and is more accurate.


Pedant rant over.
