It is very easy to find locations and is up to date. A crusing guide lists, Beauty/interest, Protection, Facilities, Latitude and longitude, Phone numbers and web sites of marinas, parks, etc. It also has many wonderful color pictures of area atractions, plus charts and tidal curent charts
This is a much better book than Gunkholing in the South Puget Sound which is eight years out of date.

Great reference book for boating in Puget Sound. Recommended!Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
I enjoyed it but it really didn't have any personal type feel to it. It was just straight information.Published 6 months ago by creekwater
Good information, lacking detailed visuals. Charts are unreadable even zoomed in. Seems more suitable for small powerboats than typical sailboat.Published 13 months ago by Tom S.
