Our eBooks

In light of the devastation of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria in the Caribbean, we are hoping to bring our readers continued updates on the islands as they continue to rebuild. We will be posting information on our blog and Facebook page as we receive the latest updates.  Chris Doyle (author of the cruising guides to the Leeward Islands and Windward Islands) has also posted information on his site,

Welcome to Cruising Guide Publications

Targeted to the cruising sailor, our site is a voyage of discovery through the islands of the Caribbean, offering the reader an intimate perspective of the islands, people and the culture of the West Indies. Here you will find updates to our guides, anchorages, navigation, route planning advice, including GPS waypoints, planning tips and information. A section of the site has been dedicated to both yacht charter and island ecology, including diving and the national marine park system.

Oceans & Islands

One of the many fascinations of exploring tropical waters is to appreciate the beauty and diversity of life on and around the coral reefs. Multicolored corals of great size and shape along with hundreds of species of fish, sponges, invertebrates and anemones act as a backdrop for divers and snorkelers who slip beneath the surface to explore the secrets of the deep. As sailors, we possess a heightened awareness of the aquatic environment and therefore we logically assume an ongoing moral obligation to help protect and restore the health of these fragile eco-systems for future generations.
