Cruising Guide to Eastern Florida is the most thoroughly researched and comprehensive source for details on the facilities and waters of the Sunshine State’s eastern shore, from Fernandina Beach to Miami. In this updated fifth edition, the reader will find a wide range of new information, including current navigational data, marinas and other boating facilities, water depths, shoreside dining and other attractions, and anchorage locales along the entire shore.
New for this edition are the “Anchorage Summary” and “Marina and Yacht-Club Summary” sections at the beginning of each chapter, offering the reader a quick synopsis of what anchorages and pleasure-craft facilities are available within a particular region. Author Claiborne S. Young has also included latitude and longitude positions for anchorages and marinas. As with his other guides, young provides dozens of helpful maps, photographs, and chart references. Intriguing historical profiles and coastal folklore will give visitors a flavor of the region. This edition also includes a handy dockage-fee rating system, so transient cruisers know what to expect in advance.
