Accomplished boating guide authors Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones have produced a series of seven Dreamspeaker Guides that provide the most detailed coverage of the Pacific Northwest, from Olympia, Washington State to Cape Scott, British Columbia.

Over the last 27 years the Yeadon-Joneses have logged thousands of cruising hours charting, recording and photographing their travels. As passionate ambassadors of the Pacific Northwest’s unspoiled cruising waters, their Dreamspeaker Guides are filled with meticulous hand-drawn charts and vital information that guide boaters safely into busy harbours, marinas and sheltered anchorages.

The Dreamspeaker Guides began with Laurence’s love of drawing, design and geography and Anne’s flair for descriptive and entertaining letter writing. Combining their talents, they were able to create a successful series of guides that promote a safe and fun boating lifestyle.
