This expanded new edition features a new, full-color format and now includes GPS. Its layout is designed to provide quick and easy reference to popular and useful anchorages in the Pacific Northwest and the Inside Passage of the west coast of BC.
The guide covers the popular San Juan Islands, the Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound, the Broughton Islands, Barkley Sound, and places south to north along the way between these destinations, as well as the waterways to the southern tip of Alaska. Like its companion guide Docks and Destinations, it returns south by way of the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
This is a book you'll not want to leave at home when you go boating, from the San Juan Islands to Ketchikan, Alaska. Numerous maps and diagrams include descriptive icons showing the most recommended anchorages, coves and bays, so that at a glance it is possible to determine where to drop the hook overnight. The information is provided in a user-friendly format enabling the reader to readily see where they have been and where they are going, in relation to the other stops. From the friendly anchorages in the San Juans to the remote wilderness of the Discovery Coast and on to Prince Rupert via the Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound. They include places to anchor when traveling the primary waterways between major destinations. The pages take the mariner from one anchorage to the next in a successive, geographic progression.
