Coastal Charts for Cruising the Florida Keys (Spiral-bound)
The latest addition to Pelican’s coastal charts series features full-color NOAA nautical charts for the waters from the Port of Miami to the Dry Tortugas. Beautifully produced with hard covers and a flexible spiral binding, these maps are sturdy and easy to use. Focusing on two routes to the Florida Keys--the inside route via the Intracoastal Waterway or the offshore option through Hawk Channel--"Coastal Charts for Cruising the Florida Keys" uses easy-to-read symbols to clearly mark anchorages, marinas, fueling stations, bridges, depth soundings, restaurants, historical sites, and other important bits of information for boaters.
"Coastal Charts for Cruising the Florida Keys" are effective when used alone or as a companion to the new "Cruising the Florida Keys" by Claiborne Young and Morgan Stinemetz. Every site and symbol noted in the chart book is cross-referenced to the corresponding page in the cruising guide, so boaters can access more information instantly.
"Your new Florida Keys cruising guide is terrific, and is now my personal choice for cruising the Keys. Everywhere we went aboard Bluewater, we compared what you said with what we saw and you were virtually 100% on target." --Milt Baker --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
