Cruising the Eastern Caribbean

We know things are always changing, so in an effort to make sure our readers always have current infomation we use this site to post updates to the Cruising Guide until the next edition is published. If you have a suggestion, please don’t hesitate to email us at

Since we can no longer fit everything in the Cruising Guide without mounting it on wheels, this is where you’ll also find extras like detailed hikes and maps, GPS waypoints, info on customs and communications, and links to useful websites.

For more information on the writers, the boat, or a little history on the guide in general, check out the About Us tab at the top right.

Hurricane Activity

On September 7th Hurricane Irma made landfall, causing significant damage to both marine and land-based infrastructure in AnguillaBarbuda, St. Martin and the Virgin Islands. The status of many of the services listed for these islands in the Cruising Guide and on this website are currently unknown. Our hearts and minds are with all those affected, and we are optimistic that they will be able to recover and rebuild. We are hopeful that many services will be up and running again by the time the cruising season begins, and will do our best to keep our readers updated. For more detailed information visit our updates and  Doyle Guides Facebook page.  

In light of the recent frequent hurricane activity, we have added the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Magic Seaweed (wind and swell predictor) to the Useful Tools tab at the top of this page. Stay safe, stay informed.

Cruising to Codrington

Having sailed monohulls for most of my life, I find nothing scarier than shallow water. Sailing my newly built 42-foot cat, Ti Kanot, which has mini keels and draws 3 feet, has made anchorages possible that were completely unthinkable before. I cannot say I am relaxed...

Fighting Evil Keweevil

At various times I have had boats invaded by cockroaches, ants and rats, but none quite prepared me for the Week of the Weevils. It all started when Ben, a friend of mine who came sailing for the first time, lightheartedly complained that he had not had the pleasure...
