Download google earth.
You can also map routes quite easily and determine distance.

There is a ruler icon - you can measure point to point, or also a path (multiple points). Pretty handy.

Go to sc offshore.com
http://www.southcarolina-offshore.com/index.php

Click on the bluewater supermap and you can easily measure distance from place to place to place. It shows the depth contours, artificial reefs and water temps all on the same map while you're measuring distance.
