The west coast is carved into five principal sounds, each with its own flavor and culture. Happily, the distances between the sounds’ protected inlets are relatively short, allowing cruising boaters to spend evenings anchored in a sheltered cove or bay. With its rock-studded shoreline, miles of sandy beaches and diverse wildlife, this coast is awe-inspiring. Cruising here demands a keen respect for the open Pacific Ocean, diligent navigation and extra care timing tides and weather; this is one of the Pacific Northwest’s most challenging and thrilling adventures.
The Yeadon-Jones' bestselling Dreamspeaker Cruising Guide series is beloved by local and visiting boaters alike. It encompasses seven volumes and provides the most detailed cruising coverage of the Pacific Northwest, from the San Juan Islands and Washington State, to British Columbia's Cape Scott and the west coast of Vancouver Island. Each volume is filled with meticulous hand-drawn charts and vital information that guides boaters safely into busy harbors, marinas and sheltered anchorages.
