Publication of this 31st annual edition of The Cruising Guide to Abaco, Bahamas was delayed because of hurricane Dorian which struck Abaco on 1 September 2019 and the need to re-survey parts of the Sea of Abaco to make certain of the accuracy of our charts and suggested course lines. This 2020 edition is the result of several survey runs on the Sea of Abaco and at harbour entrances as well as aerial flights and photographs which resulted in up-dated charts and text. This is the only guide to Abaco with post-Dorian information. The accurate easy to read colour charts are entirely based on original hydrographic research and over 47 years of local knowledge. They are the only charts which show locations of submerged power lines and “do not anchor zones” in the central part of Abaco. The book also includes recent colour aerial photographs of all principal harbours and a a proven system of GPS waypoints. Its organization makes it easy to use—it is the clear choice of most cruisers and the best selling guide to Abaco. Includes tide tables for 2020, detailed snorkeling/diving charts, business directories for Abaco, articles on fishing, a lunar calendar for 2020, a guide to the dolphins and whales of Abaco, a brief history of Abaco, and helpful local advertising. Abaco is open for business during Summer 2020. 8½” x 11″ 208 pp.
