The waters along the Northern Gulf Coast, those of Florida Panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana contain some of the most delightful cruising areas to be found in the United States. Only recently discovered by recreational captains, these waters offer a varied and unique cruising experience. The grounds between Carrabelle and New Orleans (the areas covered in this book) are as diverse as any, running the gamut from the clear, emerald green waters of the Florida Panhandle to the wide reaches of Mobile Bay, the Mississippi Sound, and the secluded backwater recesses of Mississippi and Louisiana.

From the Back Cover:

"Claiborne Sellars Young has produced a fine, new guidebook, a bona fide keeper."
--Red Marston, Sailing

"Young's warm and conversational writing style gives even a landlubber a comfortable trip through the navigational intricacies of sailing the coastal waters en route to the shoreside attractions that beckon all travelers."--Touring America

This completely updated cruising guide covers the waters of the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico, stretching from Carrabelle, Florida, to Grand Isle, Louisiana. For the first time, Claiborne Young includes approximate longitudes and latitudes for marinas and anchorages, as well as additional access information to Grand Isle, Barataria, the Chandeleur Islands, and Venice in the Mississippi Delta. He has even devised a dockage fee-rating system, so cruisers can choose a "below-average-," "average-," or "above-average-priced" marina. Like all of Young's guides, Cruising Guide to the Northern Gulf Coast combines expert navigational advice with candid evaluations of facilities, marinas, restaurants, and other shoreside attractions. This edition of the cruising guide is also cross-referenced to the current NOAA maps in Coastal Charts for Cruising Guide to the Northern Gulf Coast.
