Boating enthusiasts will welcome this thoroughly researched and comprehensive guide. Cruising Guide to Eastern Florida: Fourth Edition is the most accurate source of details on the facilities and waters of the Sunshine State?s eastern shore. In this updated edition, the reader will discover an overview of bridges at the beginning of each chapter. He will also find firsthand information on current navigation data, anchorage locales along the entire shore, marinas, shoreside dining, and other attractions.
These waters are the most diverse of any U.S. state?s coastline. From the broad path of St. John?s River to the secret streams of the Okeechobee Waterway to the "condo caverns" of Hollywood and Miami, Florida offers challenges and excitement. As with his other books, Claiborne S. Young furnishes dozens of invaluable maps, photographs, and chart references. Intriguing historical profiles and coastal folklore give visitors a flavor of the region, while sections on unsafe areas help boaters avoid dangerous waters.
