Review:

2012:The Best Abaco Guide;I have tried other guides but come back to this one every year. The local knowledge and descriptions of each location, route, etc. are excellent. I cruise with this guide open in the wheelhoues. It is great!

2011: A must have for the Bahamas. Great knowledge for our month long boating trip. Well written and easy to use. --amazon.com

2011: After reading reviews here, I had a copy of this book overnighted to me just in time for my flight to Marsh Harbor! And I am so glad I did!! This book proved to be an essential for my family as we navigated the gorgeous islands. We rented a small boat for several days for some island-hopping and beach time. While we have boated many times in the past, we don't consider ourselves experts - especially in unfamiliar waters. This guide had excellent maps of the waterways that made navigating simple - including details on specific venues available for docsing at each island. Invaluable information - took much of the stress out of boating. --amazon.com
