Exploring the San Juan & Gulf Islands

By Don Douglass & Reanne Hemingway-Douglass

Exploring the San Juan and Gulf Islands explores the most scenic and accessible cruising ground in the world–with well-sheltered waters, comfortable resorts, quaint villages and secure anchorages. The colorful San Juan and Gulf Islands, a seventy-mile chain that straddles the U.S.-Canadian border, are renowned for wildlife viewing, sport fishing, picturesque beaches, and marvelous marine parks.

Covering a thousand square miles from Deception Pass to Victoria and Nanaimo, this guidebook gives you the local knowledge you need to explore and enjoy more than 300 intimate islets and islands in this beautiful marine paradise. The updated 3rd Edition includes more great anchoring spots, Proven Cruising Routes with GPS waypoints, tips for Charter cruisers, itineraries and information on the Cascadia Marine Trail.

Don Douglass and Reanne Hemingway-Douglass have logged more than 170,000 cruising miles over the past 30 years-from South America to Dutch Harbor in the Aleutians. They consider Alaskan waters as some of the finest in the world and they spend their summers on their research vessel, Baidarka. Don, who began exploring Northwest waters in 1949 as a youth, has sailed the Inside Passage on everything from a 26-foot pleasure craft and commercial fishing boats to a Coast Guard icebreaker. He holds a BSEE degree from California State University and a Masters in Business Economics from Claremont Graduate University. Don holds honorary membership in the International Association of Cape Horners and, as a founding father of the International Bicycling Association, was elected to the Mountain Biking Hall of Fame. Reanne Hemingway-Douglass holds a BA degree in French from Pomona College. She attended Claremont Graduate University and the University of Grenoble, France. She is the first woman to have bicycled across Tierra del Fuego. Together, the Douglasses have documented over 8,000 anchor sites in their six highly acclaimed guidebooks.
