“A fine, new guidebook, a bona fide keeper.”
“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.”
This completely updated cruising guide covers the waters that stretch from Apalachicola, Florida, to Grand Isle, Louisiana. For the first time, this edition includes additional access information to Grand Isle, Barataria, the Chandeleur Islands, and the Harvey Canal in the Mississippi delta. 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.
Now this edition of the cruising guide is cross-referenced to the current NOAA maps in Coastal Charts for Cruising Guide to the Northern Gulf Coast.
