1 review for Anchorages and Marine Parks

  1. Paul Howard

    As the title suggests, this book deals mainly, but not exclusively, with marine parks. We found it more useful in the Vancouver Island area, and the San Juan and Gulf Islands, though the book includes information up to Prince Rupert and the Dixon Entrance. There are few places to get ashore in the more islolated anchorages but marine parks always have a landing area and this book tells you where they are and what facilities are available. There are diagrams indicating anchorages and aerial photos and some anchorage waypoints but the Douglass books have more details and pilotage information. Some parks have floats and mooring bouys for inexpensive mooring (much less than marinas) and there are almost always places to anchor, too. There is an extensive portion on the west coast of Vancouver Island, though we did not go there. The coverage of Haida Gwaii is minimal, both the Douglas and Waggoners is more useful there. The coverage does not extend into Alaska. Not essential, though it is useful and well organized.
