I just returned from a week paddling in the Florida Keys. While I read several paddling books covering the Keys before departing, the Atlas was by far the most useful. The detailed charts with suggested routes were great. Other books included routes, but the routes were often too short for a full day on the water and the charts lacked the detail needed to evaluate optional launch points, rest stops, side trips, etc. The Atlas also included detailed descriptions for outfitters, campgrounds, paddler friendly hotels, GPS waypoints, etc.
If you are going to spend some serious time paddling in the Keys and can only bring one book, the Atlas is the one to bring.

I just bought my copy of this beautiful new book by Bill and Mary Burnham.
This is much more than a kayak guide book, itís a true atlas with 128 glossy pages chock full of photos, custom made nautical charts with points of interest, launch locations, highlights, cautions, distances, GPS points so you can customize your own paddle and much more. A bit pricier than other ordinary guide books, but in my opinion, more than worth it. Covering North Key Largo to the Dry Tortugas itís all you need to tour the Florida Keys.
