Embassy Cruising Guides are organized divided into regions, identified by a color bar throughout the geographic area. Each region begins with an overview of highlights and a map identifying harbors, distances between ports, approximate statute mile if the port is on the ICW, and page numbers for each harbor chapter.

Harbor chapters describe all the viable cruising destinations in the area, including an overview of the port’s significance, why it’s worth a visit, things to see and do (such as popular attractions, festivals and events, beaches, wildlife preserves, walking trails, and parks), and a harbor chart with some or all of the following:

  • Compass Rose
  • Chart Information, including page numbers for the appropriate Maptech Chartkit, scale, and NOAA chart number
  • Anchorages, boat ramps, and mooring buoys
  • Marine facility locators, which show the location of virtually every marina, yacht club, boat yard, and dockside restaurant. The locators are cross-referenced to the chapter’s facility table
  • Pre-plotted waypoints ready to enter into GPS and cross-referenced with Maptech Chartkits
