| In this new Cruising Guide to the Hawaiian Islands, boaters will find the most comprehensive guide to the Hawaiian Islands ever published, with detailed coverage of 68 harbors and anchorages in the Islands. Carolyn and Bob Mehaffy have taken their sailboat into each of these harbors and anchorages and have the most reliable information on these destinations. The entry for each destination begins with a brief history of the place and description of what is going on there today. Then follow detailed instructions and a chart to assist boaters in locating the anchorage or harbor and in anchoring, mooring, or docking once there. A list of the facilities available at each harbor or anchorage will be of immense aid to boaters as they plan their cruises. In addition to the charts, hundreds of photographs illustrate the text. Introductory chapters cover such topics as history and culture, weather and currents, equipment, provisioning, and channel crossings. This is an essential companion for all boaters who plan to cruise in the Hawaiian Islands, whether by power or sail. |
