The Broughtons region lies along the eastern fringe of Queen Charlotte Strait, nestled between the coastal mainland and northeast Vancouver Island. On the northeast shore of Vancouver Island, Port McNeill is the cruising boater’s gateway to the Broughtons. Acclaimed for its dramatic mountain backdrops, wild beauty and First Nations’ history, the Broughton Archipelago and surrounding islands offer a choice of sheltered anchorages that are linked by family marine resorts that offer moorage and the opportunity to socialize with other boaters; some resorts also offer fuel, provisions and hiking trails.
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.
