This is our second copy of the book. It was purchased as a gift for a fellow sailor. I was impressed by the organization of the information and wish more cruising guides implemented this format that includes a mini-map on every page. The writing is crisp and informative. Recommended especially for sailors who need deep water passage making and safe places to retreat during storms.

Excellent. Highly recommended. A true cruiser’s guide with ratings / rankings on where to go and what do and see. Covers areas by beauty & interest, weather & wave protection, and facilities. Includes a nice to have reliable recommendation on bad weather hold-up locations. If you are a traveler who has found value in Frommer’s or Rich Steves’ guides, you will like this book. A boaters guide from an experienced and knowledgeable Chesapeake Bay (and beyond) sailor.

This is a great reference book based on the information it provides. However, I was disappointed there were no color plates and the format is not especially friendly. It doesn't play well as a coffee table book and being hard cover it isn't a user's manual either. It does contain a lot of useful information.

My husband did not even want to put down this book. It is detailed for the Chesapeake bay. It gives all the information you want for boating the Chesapeake. He would highly recommend this book if you want to know the ins and outs of the Chesapeake

One of the best books for cruising the bay. Should be on your boat if you spend time in the Chesapeake

Folksy friendly: Almost like a conversation over a couple beers, only without the errors. WONDERFUL info. The Kindle edition makes it so easy to get where you need to be. The linked index whisks you right there, rather than riffling through pages, then dropping the book and having to start over.

Buy it! Put it on your waterproof tablet, keep it charged and never be at a loss on where to go. Keep a chart (or your chartplotter!)handy though, so you can see exactly what William is telling you.

Fantastic guide, very helpful, we cruise all over the Chesapeake and use this guide all the time. We may not agree with every rating of places, but what we find beautiful or boring is subjective. It is well organized and written.
We would definitely recommend this guide.

While no guide is perfect, this one has a lot of helpful hints to the areas we have visited. As newbies on the Chesapeake,(I am a southern New Jersey ocean sailor at heart) we have found a lot of useful information for our adventures. Would recommend this to all sailors.

This is a nice book, conveniently organized for the Bay cruiser. It's easy to find essential information for any given section of the Bay. If only the charts and pictures were in color, instead of shades of gray, they would be so much more readable and useful.

Mr. Shellenberger does a great job of capturing the local knowledge that really helps those cruisers that enjoy an anchorage.
