Welcome to the homepage of Doyleguides.info, the web adjunct to my cruising guides. This site is all information; to buy a guide, try Cruising Guides, or digital Ipad or Google play. I do shamelessly blow my own trumpet about my guides, but that only happens here, and it also has useful info, like when the next one is due.
Guide updates are our most important page. Thanks to all those who have sent in updates. Please send your further updates to Sailorsguide@hotmail.com.
The Caribbean currently has a chickungunya epidemic. Read about it here and take precautions
Probably the largest part of this web are the island information pages accessed through the lslands pages. Each of the inhabited islands covered in my guide is given a page. Some of the uninhabited islands also have pages. Each page includes a description and relevant links to that island that would seem to be of interest to cruisers, including marine services.

I just cannot fit everything in the guide any more without mounting it on wheels, so detailed hikes are posted here, and also town maps which are useful for marking up and giving to friends. You can download our gps waypoints, and information about customs, communications and more. Any useful links to tools I find are posted, along with links to useful sites..
I put some recycled articles here. Ones about building and sailing my cats can be interesting for those who might be thinking or upping the number of hulls under them. The one the volcano is good for those visiting St. Pierre who want more detail than I can give in the guide.
