Product Description:
Stunning photography and beautiful illustrations truly capturing the magic of the Turks & Caicos Islands in this new book.

Over the last decade the Turks and Caicos Islands, situated just south of the Bahamas, have won international acclaim as a premier scuba diving destination and luxury retreat. While the unrivaled marine life and wondrous beaches serve as the main magnet, these islands have much more to offer the discerning tourist.

The Turks and Caicos Islands takes the reader on a colorful journey throughout this small archipelago, exploring its natural delights and amazing history, from Taino Indian occupation to future island developments. The brilliant turquoise of the waters that are home to the famous coral reefs and the many species of marine life have been captured on film using sophisticated underwater camera techniques. And, the flora and fauna of the islands are not only described in detail but are also accompanied by fine illustrations. This book truly is a tribute to a beautiful unspoiled part of the world.

Product Description:
A Cruising Guide to The Turks and Caicos, 3rd ed. is a new, updated and improved version of the Turks and Caicos Guide we originally produced during the 1990s. This in-depth cruising guide provides coverage of the entire Turks and Caicos region, including significantly-expanded coverage of the Dominican Republic. The book contains color charts, GPS waypoints, piloting instructions, approaches, routes, marinas and anchorages, dive sites, ham and weather radio broadcasts and stations, tides and currents, and even history, holidays and customs. In addition, the book contains charts, photos and information on most of the more popular cruising ports of the Dominican Republic. In this book, as in all other books by Pavlidis, the charts are extremely accurate and provide close-up views in much greater scale than standard navigation charts. The color schemes of the charts in this new edition are designed to make navigation easier. Altogether there are 47 charts included; 30 charts covering the Turks and Caicos and another 17 charts covering the Dominican Republic.
