Victoria & Sooke to Nanaimo, Volume 1
Dreamspeaker Cruising Guide Series: The Gulf Islands & Vancouver Island
The first in this essential series, Volume 1 is called "a lively, user-friendly guide for cruisers and coastal explorers that’s lavishly illustrated and packed with tested local knowledge, from the best anchorages to the best burgers" by Duart Snow of Pacific Yachting magazine.
Book DescriptionThese popular cruising companions offer charts, tips and data that will enhance the enjoyment and safety of any voyage. The guides feature 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. Intended to complement official hydrographic charts, the Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides accurately pinpoint both popular and little-known highlights in BC and Pacific Northwest coastal waters that every sailor, power-boater or kayaker should know.
Written in the personal style of a boater’s logbook, the accompanying text provides vital information about featured locations, plus notes on recreational activities for adults and children. Here you will find 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 cappuccino!
Aerial photographs illustrate safe approaches to the destinations, while full-colour scenic photographs showcase the splendour of the Pacific Northwest Coast.
