Make cruising the ICW easy -- know exactly where to find everything you need.

A traditional cruising guide isn't designed for quick answers!

Instead of reading through pages of text, use our revolutionary new Quick Reference to easily find exactly what you need. 

The key is separate mile-by-mile tables for each topic:

  • bridge names, heights, opening schedules, and how to contact

  • anchorages including wind/wave protection directions, depth, tide range, current, swell, and availability of places to walk dogs

  • inlets to/from the Atlantic Ocean

  • free docks

  • services, including fuel, propane, water, trash, and pump outs

  • navigation alerts warning of shoaling, fast currents, and other hazards

  • haulout facilities including maximum beam

Information is arranged in tables. Simply look in the appropriate column for an "X" and discover where it's available!

More Info

Cockpit companion to keep readily at hand to answer questions during the day’s run such as:

  • What's the name of this bridge? When does it open? How do I call it?
  • Where's the nearest place I could anchor?
  • Where could I go outside or come back in?
  • If I want to push on a bit, how far is the next decent anchorage?
  • Where's the next fuel stop?
  • Oops! I need a pumpout! Where?
  • This problem is going to require a haulout. Where's the nearest place that can handle my boat? How do I contact them?
  • Which side of that dredge is it safe to go on?

Invaluable supplement to cruising guides for use underway.

Includes quick reminders on dredging and horn signals.

Print Features for Ease of Use

Bright, easy-to-read subject tabs, organized first by topic and then by state and mile marker so you can quickly find the information you need.

Special matte paper reduces glare when used in the sun.

Ultra-durable, waterproof paper resists tearing, crumpling, and discoloration from sunscreen, petroleum products, and other chemicals. Designed to be kept in the cockpit, even with rain or splashes.

Lays flat for easy reference.

Large enough that info can easily be read yet small enough to be conveniently stored. No tiny print!

May be easily wiped clean if dirty.

Designed in the USA. Printed in the USA on American-made recyclable synthetic paper using environmentally-friendly soy-based inks at a facility that is completely wind-powered. Minimal packaging.

80 pages.

PDF Features for Ease of Use

No need for a mailing address -- download immediately upon payment.

May download on more than one device used on a single boat (that is, can have on two tablets, or tablet and phone, IF used on the same boat). May not "give" copies to people on other boats.

Clickable links for all phone numbers and marina/boatyard websites.

The index makes it easy to jump from one section to another. Click on the three dots at the top right, then Bookmarks and Table of Contents. Choose Table of Contents on the next screen and click on the section desired.

On a laptop or desktop, the process is similar although the symbols may be different.
