Overview

"Your new Florida Keys cruising guide is terrific and is now my personal choice for cruising the Keys. Everywhere we went aboard Bluewater, we compared what you said with what we saw and you were virtually 100 percent on target." --Milt Baker

This brand-new book by the king of cruising guides provides reliable instructions and lively commentary about traveling from the Port of Miami all the way to the Dry Tortugas. Cruisers may choose either the inside route via the Intracoastal Waterway or the offshore option through Hawk Channel to the Florida Keys. In either case, the authors have carefully documented obstructions, anchorages, marinas, fuel supplies, and other facilities for cruisers. Cruising the Florida Keys also contains firsthand evaluations of restaurants, cultural attractions, and historical sites, including many things to see and do in Key West.

Cruising the Florida Keys works best when accompanied by Claiborne Young's Coastal Charts for Cruising the Florida Keys, containing the latest NOAA nautical charts cross-referenced to the cruising guide. Included on these nautical charts are anchorages, marinas, fueling stations, bridges, restaurants, historical sites, and other important bits of information for cruisers.

Young and his navigator wife, Karen, are avid, experienced cruisers who have logged countless hours exploring coastal Florida to ensure the accuracy of their descriptions and recommendations. An authority on travel, his other titles include: Cruising Guide to Western Florida: Sixth Edition, Coastal Charts for Cruising Guide to Western Florida, Cruising Guide to Eastern Florida: Fifth Edition, Cruising Guide to the Northern Gulf Coast: Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Fourth Edition, Power Cruising: The Complete Guide to Selecting, Outfitting, and Maintaining Your Power Boat, Second Edition, and, as editor, Cruising Guide to New York Waterways and Lake Champlain.
