Format: Paperback
This is an essential cruising guide for the South Pacific. It is divided in to four sections:

1. Introduction
2. General Information
3. Pilotage (descriptions of specific countries)
4. Appendix (charts, useful books, glossary)

The best part is all the hand-drawn charts for many, many anchorages. Of course, this is only a visual look and not to be used for navigation.

Highly recommend for your cruising bookshelf.

Tested - The BEST guide to cruising the South Pacific March 11 2010
By 3eagles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having sailed through the Caribbean before arriving in the South Pacific, my wife and I had become use to the excellent cruising guides available in the Caribbean. Obviously there is a much smaller market for the South Pacific and it becomes evident when searching for the right guides to this region. Thankfully, someone pulled together this book and made it available to us, for without it many boats would be lost on the dangerous reefs and anchorages that make up this challenging sailing region. Having read all the cruising guides to this region, THIS IS THE ONE BOOK YOU MUST BUY. It provides very little cultural information or traveler recommendations on restaurants (you'll have to buy Lonely Planet, etc), but it is the ULTIMATE guide to choosing a safe anchorage and how to approach. The charts themselves are a little basic and lack depth information, but they do highlight the preferred routes of entry, desirable anchorage locations and includes a text description for added detail. I was continually surprised by how many anchorages this book included and it safely took us through the South Pacific. If you plan to cruise the South Pacific in any boat, I would highly recommend that you purchase this book. No other book comes close to being as helpful.

Must have March 12 2012
By Steven Ensslen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is by far the best guide for the south pacific. Do not sail without it. For many of the minor island groups (Cook Islands for example) this is the only accurate guide.

A must-have guide for the South Pacific Sept. 9 2013
By Diana E. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an essential cruising guide for the South Pacific. It is divided in to four sections:

1. Introduction
2. General Information
3. Pilotage (descriptions of specific countries)
4. Appendix (charts, useful books, glossary)

The best part is all the hand-drawn charts for many, many anchorages. Of course, this is only a visual look and not to be used for navigation. We have used this book and referred to it often since we began our cruising journey 7 years ago.

Highly recommend for your cruising bookshelf.

Just what I was looking for. Dec 23 2012
By Roy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am planning a passage to the South Pacific in the next year. Since this will be my first experience in the South Pacific this book gives me an excellent starting point. This guide covers a vast area of detail and virtually every anchorage is described with supporting plans. This book gives great detail as to where when and how. This is first hand information from the authors years of sailing in this area. Warwick Clay has done an excellent job complying this wonderful resource.
