Continuously updated and expanded since 1990, the ONLY guide that covers the Mid-Atlantic Coast from NYC to the southern entrance of the Bay, the entire Delaware River and the entire Chesapeake Bay. The trusted planning guide to cruising this popular region, now updated and improved to work with online navigation sites and tools.

Dotting its more than 3,000-mile shoreline are creeks, coves, and inlets--or gunkholes in Chesapeake Bay parlance. They are as challenging as they are charming for cruisers to find and enter, sometimes discouraging the less adventuresome. But thanks to author Bill Shellenberger, you will be able to enjoy these hidden treasures like an old pro.

For more than twenty years, Bill Shellenberger's "Cruising the Chesapeake" has been the guide of choice for sailors and motor cruisers seeking to avoid the beaten path. Here Bill shares with you his engaging, heartfelt evocation of the Bay, its shores, history, wildlife, and people. No other guide to the region offers such complete, detailed coverage of virtually every point of interest on the Bay--from the secluded east fork of Langford Creek to the bustling hearts of Baltimore, Washington, and Norfolk.
