A complete guide to kayaking one of the world’s great paddling destinations.
Whether you are planning a day’s paddle or a two-week excursion, Kayak Routes of the Pacific Northwest Coast has everything you need to know. This newly updated and expanded book explores eighteen regions from Oregon to British Columbia. Explore the glacier-carved cliffs of the vast Lower Columbia River or travel through Puget Sound and the intricate islets and reefs of Washington State’s San Juan Islands. Discover the Lower Mainland’s Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, home to such diverse wildlife as orca whales, seals and bald eagles, or head to the haunting archipelagos of Queen Charlotte Islands/Haida Gwaii and British Columbia’s far northern coast. New for this edition are sections on the historic Lower Columbia River and rugged Queen Charlotte Strait.
