Exploring the North Coast of British Columbia takes seafaring explorers from the famous Nakwakto Rapids to the Alaska border. This ultimate pilothouse resource describes previously uncharted Spiller channel and Griffin Passage, the stunning scenery of Belize Inlet, Queens Sound, Burke and Dean Channels, Douglas channel, Gardner Canal, Principe Channel and the seldom-visited turquoise waters of Portland Canal. This revised second edition helps you plot a course for the beautiful South Moresby Island of the Queen Charlottes, known for its rare flora and fauna, and for its historical sites of native Haida culture.

FineEdge.com's completely updated and comprehensive pilothouse guide now includes the West Coast of the Queen Charlotte Islands. All waypoints are updated and standardized to NAD 83.

About the Author:

Authors Don Douglass and Reanne Hemingway-Douglass have logged more than 170,000 cruising miles over the past 35 years from 60°N to 63°S latitude. Since 1991, they have spent their summers cruising on their trawler, Baidarka, gathering data for new titles and updating their acclaimed Exploring series of nautical guidebooks. Together they have documented 6,000 anchor sites between San Diego and the Alaska Peninsula.
Don began exploring Alaskan waters as a youth living in Ketchikan. He has sailed the West Coast and the Inside Passage on everything from a 21-foot sailboat to a commercial fishing boat and a Coast Guard icebreaker. He holds a BSEE degree from California State University and a Masters in Business Economics from Claremont Graduate University. Don is an honorary member of the International Association of Cape Horners and, as the author of several mountain biking guidebooks and a father of the sport, he was elected to the Mountain Biking Hall of Fame.
Reanne, who holds a BA degree in French from Pomona College, attended Claremont Graduate University and the University of Grenoble, France. Sailor, writer, cyclist and language teacher, Reanne s articles have appeared in numerous outdoor magazines. Her classic, Cape Horn: One Man's Dream, One Woman's Nightmare has been published in French and Italian. Reanne led the first women's bicycling team to cross Tierra del Fuego at the tip of South America. In 2008, she finally signed the register atop Cape Horn Island during Don's second visit.

Review:

Nothing can replace local knowledge and Exploring the North Coast of British Columbia provides excellent local knowledge from a seasoned research and writing team. The Douglasses have personally researched several thousand anchor sites over the entire coast. --George Eaton, Director of Hydrography, Pacific Region, Canadian Hydrographic Service
