OffCenterHarbor.com asked our guides to share their favorite books that should be in every boater’s library…

Cruise of the Cachalot, by Frank Bullen

Cruise of the Cachalot

This, the most readable of all the whaling books, was written by an eighteen-year-old British seaman who shipped out on a Yankee Whaler from New Bedford in 1875, and covers the art, science, geography and adventure of hunting the mighty sperm whale with primitive weapons from whaleboats as dainty as seabirds.
