Beachcruising and Coastal Camping




Buy the book! —> Amazon link

A how-to book, packed with information to help you go beachcruising or coastal camping, no matter your level of expertise.

Everything you need to know about selecting a beachcruising boat, where to beachcruise, how to make camp, what gear to buy, and more, including how to go cruising and camping at low cost.

In this book, “beachcruising” means cruising a small boat along a coast with the intention of camping ashore. This book elaborates upon the unique aspects of camping that apply to boating.

Though it is possible to use 50-foot schooners to go beachcruising, Beachcruising and Coastal Camping focuses on small sailboats that are light enough to be lifted or rolled ashore, and sailboats under 30 feet that are designed to dry out flat on an ebb tide.



This is about the best book you could ever hope to read on the subject. Even with all of my training in the U.S. Army, I still acquired a lot of new and useful knowledge by acquiring this book. The knowledge acquired from this book will make all present & future fishing/camping trips just that much more enjoyable. The author will take her time to answer any and all questions you may have. She is a real professional act.

Ida Little and
Michael Walsh


Ida Little and Michael Walsh have beachcruised and coastal camped for 40 years in a wide variety of boats. They share their knowledge and adventures with you.


Engaging and delightful read. I do not believe that I have ever read such an interesting, easy to read, engaging book filled with so much useful information. Ms. Little and Mr. Walsh seem to be able to make even the most mundane passing on of information a joy to read. I am a slow reader and found I could not put it down and read it within three days of spare time. Thank you to Ms. Little and Mr. Walsh for choosing and showing us, in a wonderful way, your inspiring life.
