Heading North, from Florida to the Canadian Border

It's never too early to start planning for the much awaited voyage north up the Atlantic and ICW. We have listed our top recommended chartbooks and guides for cruisers heading north from Florida to the Canadian border. Maptech and Waterway Guide have released new editions up along the entire east coast with the latest waypoints and anchorages.

As always, we recommend taking at least one guide and chartkit along with a flag, logbook, and an up to date digital chart for your plotter.
