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.
Wild Coast Publishing is proud to introduce our second book in a colourful and comprehensive guide for the south coast of Vancouver Island.
Volume 2 covers some of the world’s best coastal exploration, from wild and untamed West Coast Trail, rarely examined from the marine perspective, down through Juan de Fuca Strait, Greater Victoria, the Saanich Islands, the entire Gulf Islands in unrivalled detail, the Ballenas-Winchelsea Archipelago, Denman and Hornby Islands and finally Comox Harbour – all documented in the detail you need to plan a trip.
Including all the latest BC Marine Trail information, it adds to that with dozens of new never-before documented camping locations as well as features to see and practical information on how to best transit this varied coastline. It is required reading for anyone visiting the BC coastline – or just dreaming of it.
If you have heard of or are looking for The Wild Coast series of guide books, the BC Coast Explorer guide books are the updated and improved replacements, featuring the latest in the marine trail guide information and improved cartography. Volume 2 of the BC Coast Explorer series bridges the geographic region covered in The Wild Coast Vol. 1.
