Bob and Carolyn Mehaffy spent over a year on their Hardin 45 ketch, Carricklee, researching all of the anchorages and harbors on all the inhabited Hawaiian Islands, including Midway atoll. The result is the Cruising Guide to the Hawaiian Islands, Third Edition 2018.
This updated and revised edition is a comprehensive guide that has something to offer the first-time island-hopper and seasoned Hawaiian cruiser alike. The Mehaffys include detailed instructions for finding anchorages and harbors including a chart for each, as well as hundreds of photographs to illustrate the text. Also included is a short history of each destination, as well as a description of what is going on there today. Introductory chapters cover history and culture, weather and currents, equipment, provisioning, and information on channel crossings. Don’t cruise the Hawaiian Islands without this essential guide.
