"I just wanted to thank you for the help we got out of your cruising guide, it certainly made my life easier!!"

Greg Palmer Espiritu Santo

I have been using the Rocket nautical guides for New Caledonia  and Vanuatu for several years and they are the most complete, user friendly cruising guides I have ever seen. I have found them to be very accurate and there is more good information than I have found in any other cruising guides.
