This new edition of Anchorages and Marine Parks provides details of popular and useful anchorages in the Pacific Northwest.
Anchorages and Marine Parks includes references to the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and covers the San Juan Islands, the Sunshine Coast, Desolation Sound, the Broughton Islands, the west coast of Vancouver Island, places south to north along the way among these destinations, and the main waterways to the southern tip of Alaska.
The pages take the mariner from one anchorage to the next in a successive, geographic progression. Maps and diagrams include descriptive icons showing recommended anchorages, coves and bays. Information is provided in a user-friendly format, enabling the reader to readily see where they have been and where they are going in relation to other stops.
