Accompanied by beautiful aerial photography, detailed charts, informative narration and helpful mileage charts, San Juan Islands is a must have guide for every boater. The harbors and anchorages listed in this guide are illustrated with over 70 GPS accurate charts, derived from satellite photography, US government chart and topographic data and first-hand exploration.

Important boating information such as marina locations and layouts, fuel availability, weather, customs information, full listing of area NOAA charts, boat haulout facilities and marine chandleries and services are among a few of the many features detailed throughout the guide.
