Adventure: Abaco


The Abaco Islands are a funscape filled with white-sand beaches, electric-blue waters, swaying green palm trees and friendly locals.

Now in its 30th edition, Steve Dodge’s spiral-bound The Cruising Guide to Abaco, Bahamas: 2019 has color charts, color aerial photographs of key harbors, GPS waypoints for anchorages, ports and passages, and 45 years’ worth of annually updated local knowledge.
