The first step towards those unspoiled beaches is attending the upcoming webinar, “Cruising The Bahamas and Caribbean” on December 13, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time with Waterway Guide and Navionics.

Beautiful water, great diving and fascinating sights ashore make this a unique destination for boaters.

    I have a conflict at the time of the webinar. Will it be recorded to listen to later? Do you have a Podcast channel?
