BC Coast Explorer Volume 1: North and West Vancouver Island
Some places in this world are still wild, remote and untouched. The outer coast of Vancouver island is one such remarkable place. Author and explorer John Kimantas takes you through this phenomenal stretch of coastline, both by foot and by water, in unparalleled detail.
It includes the type of detail that made his first series of guide books, the Wild Coast series, the quintessential resource for information on the most remote locations on the BC coast.
This is the heir to that series, updated to include changes such as the Maa-nulth Treaty, the initiatives of the BC Marine Trails Network and other political, environmental and social changes that are continuing to shape these lands.
Through maps, photography and description, The BC Coast Explorer series provides the building blocks for the adventure of a lifetime. By foot or paddle, this volume will take you to places rarely seen and yet too beautiful to miss.
Covered in detail, feature by feature, are north Vancouver Island and Cape Scott, Brooks Peninsula and all five West Coast Sounds: Quatsino, Kyuquot, Nootka, Clayoquot and Barkley sounds. Included are launches, points of interest, campsites and all the necessary details to get you there.
The toughest part will be deciding where to go.
