New England Anchorages and Guides

I plan to venture from N Carolina to Maine and am looking for a good guide, especially one that might identify anchorages along the way. For the Intracoastal Waterway I have used Skipper Bob and really like the info in that publication. Is there anything comparable for waters North of Cape May and into New England?

The Maptech/Embassy Guides are usually the best in the northeast. There is harbor after harbor after harbor you can anchor in, all within a day's sail once past NYC. The only things you'll really need the guide for are to figure out where to provision and where to get fuel and water, as well as for attractions.


For Maine, I have previously plugged "Cruising Guide to Maine Coast" by Hank and Jan Taft and now stewardship was passed to Chris R(can't remember how to spell his name). It's the best guide for Maine.

going from Chesapeake to Main

I am sailing from Chesapeake Bay to Maine this summer and am using the Maptech Embassy Guides, Duncan's Cruising Guide to the New England Coast, and Bildner's Visual Cruising Guide to the Maine Coast. I'll be interested in what others suggets as well.

Good link. I can't say enough about this book (but maybe I already have??) haha

The best part IMO, is the history and folklore you find in the book. It turns your cruise from "where can I get some diesel", to "WOW! I never knew the buildings in NYC were carved out of these very harbors." Things like that are found for every harbor in the book. There are also all the needed info (showers, moorings, anchorages, grocery, libraries, etc...) and to top it off, there are sections on the native wildlife and general sections on topics like lobster pots and fog.

Somewhere around 20 years ago, I wanted to cruise to most of the places in the book. I'm *still* working on it!! ha ha
