Description

The ultimate guide to exploring B.C.'S untamed coast. From author and kayaker John Kimantas comes the second volume of the highly successful Wild Coast series.

This time, Kimantas takes readers on an exhilarating journey through the Inside and Outside Passages of BC from north Vancouver Island to the Alaska border.

Each chapter in this comprehensive guidebook explores a part of B.C.'S remote and rarely visited stretch of coastline and discusses the region's Native and European history, geography, weather, ecology, attractions and services. Detailed maps show the major points of interest-from the best campgrounds to the ideal spots to view wildlife.

Included are lists with the key features of each area:

  • Amenities,
  • Hazards,
  • Launch sites,
  • Parks and ecological reserves, and
  • Hiking trails.

Each book in the Wild Coast series is written from first-hand research and exploration: Kimantas has gathered the information and photographs while kayaking B.C.'S breathtaking coastline. Although The Wild Coast 2 provides specific information for kayakers, anyone interested in exploring the coast will find this guide thorough and useful.
