The Guidebook to the Sea of Cortez

Sea of Cortez: A Cruiser’s Guidebook, is the most up to date, comprehensive guide detailing the remote and pristine anchorages of the Baja peninsula and Mexican mainland within the Sea of Cortez.

The harbors and anchorages listed in this guide are illustrated with over 100 GPS accurate chartlets, derived from satellite photography and first-hand exploration. GPS waypoints, along with prime anchorage locations, accompany each chartlet.

Important cruising information such as weather, HAM and SSB radio nets, customs and immigration information, marina locations and layouts, fuel availablity, boat haulout facilities and marine chandleries are among many of the features detailed throughout this guide. And because cruising doesn’t stop when the hook is dropped or the docklines are made fast, also included are city maps, grocery store locations, hiking trails, dive and snorkel sites and more.

Sample itineraries have been included, based on different schedules to help you make the most out of your time while boating within the Sea of Cortez.

Vivid color photography, illustrating the serene beauty and life of the Sea of Cortez, makes this book not only a valuable aid to mariners, but also a fantastic way to plan your next trip or just to daydream of sunny days in the Sea of Cortez.
