"The Drinking & Eating Guide to the BVI"
4th edition
by: Julian Putley

Well... how do I describe it? It's all about having a great time with food and drink throughout the BVI. It's full of recipes, limericks, cartoons, and humorous anecdotes, as well as being a great guide to wonderful restaurants and watering holes. This fourth edition has $200+ worth of freebees that will pay for the cost many times over, so you absolutely can't lose. 2-4 "refreshment stops" will cover the cost of the book. I know charter groups where every one of the crew all get a copy, just to use the coupons. This book is incredibly popular, even to moderate drinkers. Written by Julian Putley, a local BVI author, and a great guy.

"The Guide to Diving & Snorkeling in the British Virgin Islands"

2nd edition ~ released Jan. 2010
b written by: Jeff Williams
artwork by: Ria O'Hagen

ISBN 978-976-8204-44-B


This diving and snorkeling volume is the master guide to the underwater world of the BVI ! Jeff Williams has "lived" this world for decades, and has produced the ultimate reference.
EVERY
BVI scuba diver should possess this book, which gives a thorough account, including maps, diagrams,and detailed directions, to safely & enjoyably explore 77 sites throughout the BVI. Because information like depth, currents, and other site features are clearly described in each briefing, scuba divers and snorkelers are clear about which areas of a given site are best for them. This is the real thing!

This book is easy reading, almost conversational in tone, at times -- yet, it's a very serious reference book. It's not riddled with pretty fish photos to fill space. It is jammed packed with important information, along with detailed site maps, at the turn of every page. (I sell useful fish & coral ID products below, for those who want them.)

Finally, I must commend the author for the construction of this book. It is sturdily, spiral bound for laying flat or folding on the cockpit table. The pages are heavily coated, thick paper stock for standing up to the rigors of travel.

Since snorkeling & diving are integral parts of cruising the BVI, this guide deserves its rightful place next to your cruising guides, maps, and charts.

 

Our special price - $23.95 !!

fish & coral ID

"Corals & Fishes Pocket Guide"
for the Bahamas & the Caribbean
by Idaz & Jerry Greenberg
ISBN 091300829X

This is the fully waterproof edition. It measures 4.5 x 6" and contains 64 pages packed with great pictures and information. I personally think that this book is an essential companion to any BVI snorkeler. It's big enough to read very easily, but small enough to stick in your pocket and take with you. Its waterproof paper makes it safe to leave it lying around the boat, or taking to the beach. Take it ashore and look at it with your kids and friends to talk over lunch about what you just saw on your last dive.

"The Southern Night Sky"
(A Pocket Traveller Guide)

This is a chart to prominent stars and southern constellations (winter and summer skies) optimally viewed from between latitudes of 15 and 25 degrees south, but folks like to get this for the Caribbean since some southern constellations are visible, from the islands. This glows in the dark, so finding the Southern Cross "for the first time," shouldn't be too hard.

"The Night Sky"
(A Pocket Traveller Guide)

This is a chart to prominent stars and northern constellations (winter and summer skies), optimally viewed from between latitudes of 23 and 45 degrees north, so it errs in the other direction from the Southern Sky above. The problem with the BVI is exemplified in the fact that you can see both the Big Dipper and the Southern Cross from these latitudes!


So.. which one do you get? Most folks get the Southern version, because they are hoping for a glimpse of some things they've never seen - Southern Cross, Jewel Box, Southern Pleiades, Canopus, Centaurus, etc.. Some people get both, to cover all possibilities. Furthermore, the northern version is quite useful back home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These two guides and the ones to the left measure 8 1/2" high, and unfold to 22", and conveniently back to 4" wide, for easy pocket storage. They are heavily laminated for durability and protection against the elements.

"The British Virgin Islands" is a stunning photographic portrait by the accomplished photographer, Steve Simonsen, published by 34 Main Street Publishers.

New in 2009, this is the quintessential photographic essay on the BVI.

Caribbean Sea Wall Map
18" x 27"

This is a beautiful map of the Caribbean Sea region that displays the island chains and surrounding countries in such a way that is rarely seen on one map. Although this is folded, it flattens nicely to hang on the wall, or lay on a table top for viewing. For those of us who love the Caribbean, this is a great map for getting a perspective on the entire region. The back side is the same map, but with caption boxes of historical text for most countries and island chains. Although it is more of a novelty/gift item (not cruising map), it is made of a durable, waterproof, synthetic paper.

Shipping Costs

All orders shipped US Mail (not UPS or Fedex). Please be sure to give me an address that takes Mail delivery.

Approximate Books shipping costs: I prefer to ship all orders via Priority Mail envelopes and boxes.It is much faster and safer than plain packaging. I keep the shipping as reasonable as possible, usually absorbing some of the cost - so just email me your desired order (and any questions), and I'll confirm your total price, with shipping. Unfortunately, US Mail prices have gone up terribly as of January 17, 2016. My typical Priority Flat Rate envelope went up over 30%. This has caused me to charge a bit more, but also lose money on all of my mailing costs. Very aggravating for me, needless to say, but I do apologize.

Other approximate mailing costs:

Oval BVI decal shipping: No charge.

Maps, Pocket Traveller Guides, laminated fishcards: $1.00 mailed alone - usually no shipping when mailed with a book order.

Flag-related-products: $2.00 any quantity, $.50 with any book order. If it's just one or two small items like a patch or lapel pin, that I can fit into an chubby envelope, just add $1.00.

Note: Since this is not a big money-making proposition, please make sure your check is good, your mailing address is clear, and I have your email address to confirm shipment. Feel free to confirm a mailed order/check with an email to me.

Confused? Just email me your order, and I'll let you know what the shipping cost will be. It's that simple.
