About Us

Together, HeartLand Boating and Quimby’s Cruising Guide are the ultimate resource for boaters on America’s inland waterways.

Since its launch in 1989, HeartLand Boating magazine has exclusively covered the lakes and rivers of America, and the freshwater lifestyle that goes hand-in-hand. Its mission is to inform readers through relevant, entertaining, inspiring articles that are written by boaters, for boaters. In each issue, you'll find profiles on exciting destinations, along with columns and reports on critical topics such as safety, boat handling, hands-on maintenance and repairs, and new equipment and gear. HeartLand Boating is published five times a year, March through October, during the boating season. In between, we keep our website updated with fresh content year round.
