By Richard Y. Smith, Elizabeth Adams Smith, and the Atlantic Cruising Club
Atlantic Cruising Club reviewers have selected and visited hundreds of marinas - Maine to Florida (including Florida's West Coast) plus the Abacos. They've quizzed dockmasters, inspected heads, travelifts, pools and other amenities, checked out local services and markets, restaurants, inns, airports, etc. Then they've prepared extensive Marina Surveys and evaluated each marina on a scale of one to five bells. All of this material has been compiled into full-page, detailed Marina Reports for each of 380 marinas. In addition to the bell rating, each Report contains up to 200 items of information including contact data, dockage rates and prices, electric services and rates, pump-out, fuel, navigational access, reported depths, laundry, cable TV, pet rules, boatyard services, nearby recreation and entertainment, restaurants, accommodations, provisioning sources, transportation, general services, supplies, and medical resources. There are also descriptions of each marina's general environment, its operations, local events, area attractions and much, much more.
