This all new edition is a totally updated cruising guide covering the entire Pacific coast of Mexico from The US Border, down the Baja Peninsula, around up into the Sea of Cortez all the way north to San Felipe, across to Puerto Penasco and south to Puerto Madero. Authored by Captain Holly Scott, with contributions by Charles and Margo Wood, and Gerry Cunningham, this invaluable tool includes 61 additional charts with extensive coverage of the Sea of Cortez, including Topolobampo and Altata on the mainland coast. The charts have valuable information on entrances, dinghy landings, marinas, dangers, ferry routes, anchorages, shore attractions and amenities, and GPS waypoints, to name a few.
The introduction and appendices cover everything from entrance requirements, to sun protection, bug screens, radio frequencies, Spanish vocabulary, what to have onboard, fishing, how to deal with pets in paradise, and much more. And don’t forget the QR codes, which are linked to videos, websites, marinas, city maps, and even whale watching information!
Printed on uncoated paper for easy reading under red lights at night, this valuable chart allows you to write your own observations right on the page. The covers and bindings allow the guides to lay flat and stay open without a winch handle to hold it down. There are enough color photos to get a feel for the area, but this is not a coffee table book. It is, however, an all inclusive cruising guide to Mexico for real cruisers on real cruising boats, who know the value of multiple sources of information backed up by real time experience.
