Intended to complement official hydrographic charts, Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides feature full-colour scenic photographs that showcase the splendour of the Pacific Northwest coast and informative and charming hand-drawn shoreline plans of selected marinas and small boat anchorages, ranging from safe all-weather havens to secluded picnic spots and marine parks. With charts, tips and data, this guide pinpoints both popular and little-known highlights to enhance the enjoyment and safety of any voyage to the West Coast.
Laurence’s accurate, hand-drawn charts illustrate safe approaches to anchorages and marinas, and his creative colour photographs portray the scenic splendour of this enchanting island and Anne’s easy-to-follow text provides vital information and local knowledge about each destination: the best spots to anchor your boat, share a romantic sunset, enjoy a fine meal, pick blackberries in season—even locate a welcome hot shower or latte.
