This 2021 edition is the result of several survey runs on the Sea of Abaco and at harbour entrances as well as aerial flights and photographs which resulted in up-dated charts and text. This is the only guide to Abaco with post-Dorian information. The accurate easy to read colour charts are entirely based on original hydrographic research and over 48 years of local knowledge. They are the only charts which show locations of submerged power lines and “do not anchor zones” in the central part of Abaco. The book also includes recent colour aerial photographs of all principal harbours and a a proven system of GPS waypoints. Its organization makes it easy to use—it is the clear choice of most cruisers and the best selling guide to Abaco. Includes tide tables for 2021, detailed snorkeling/diving charts, business directories for Abaco, articles on fishing, a lunar calendar for 2021, a guide to the dolphins and whales of Abaco, a brief history of Abaco, and helpful local advertising. 8½” x 11″ 208 pp.
