A Cruiser’s Guidebook is the third edition of this comprehensive cruising guide to the remote and pristine anchorages of the Baja peninsula and Mexican mainland within the Sea of Cortez. This new edition features new aerial and updated photographs, additional anchorages, soundings, waypoints and enhanced topography.
The harbours and anchorages listed in this guide are illustrated with over 100 GPS accurate charts, derived from first-hand exploration, satellite photography, and current digital elevation models. GPS waypoints, along with prime anchorage locations, accompany each chart. Important cruising information such as weather, ham and SSB radio nets, customs and immigration information, marina locations and layouts, fuel availability, boat haulout facilities and marine chandleries are among many of the features detailed throughout this guide. And because cruising doesn’t stop when the hook is dropped or the docklines are made fast, also included are city maps, grocery store locations, hiking trails, dive and snorkel sites and more. Sample itineraries have been included, based on different schedules to help you make the most out of your time while boating within the Sea of Cortez. Vivid color photography, including aerial views of the ports and harbours, make this book not only a valuable aid to mariners, but also a fantastic way to plan your next trip or simply daydream of sunny days in Mexico's Sea of Cortez.
