"Local knowledge is pure gold for the cruising boater who is venturing into unfamiliar waters--or exploring familiar waters anew. Knowing what to expect takes some of the uncertainty and anxiety out of breaking new ground, and adds immeasurably to the safety and enjoyment of discovering new destinations."
--Duart Snow, former editor, Pacific Yachting
A short cruise north from British Columbia's Gulf Islands lies an area of spectacular natural beauty. Desolation Sound and the nearby Discovery Islands offer a seductive maze of interconnecting waterways which encompass large tracts of accessible wilderness that entice boaters and kayakers to visit each year.
Designed to complement official Hydrographic charts, Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides feature over 100 nautically accurate and informative hand-drawn charts of marinas and sheltered anchorages, ranging from safe all-weather havens to secluded one-boat nooks and pristine marine parks.
Colour photographs illustrate safe approaches and portray the area's scenic splendour while the easy-to-follow text provides local knowledge about each location, plus tips to enhance your enjoyment--where to find the best spots to anchor, share a romantic sunset, enjoy a fine alfresco picnic, hike to a freshwater lake or locate a welcome hot shower.
