Alone in the Passage: An Explorers Guide to Sea Kayaking the Inside Passage

Alone in the Passage brings together in one place, all of the
information that an advanced sea kayaker would need to successfully
complete the 1,300 mile (2,080 kilometer) Inside Passage.

Topics covered include:
The physical and mental requirements for long distance kayaking
The dangers faced on a daily basis and how to deal with them
Wildlife encounters both on-water and on-shore
Detailed how-to sections on all aspects of gear and procedures
Equipment and clothing evaluations and checklist
Field proven camping and paddling techniques
Day to day descriptions of paddling the Inside Passage
All campsite coordinates 

Denis Dwyer has been exploring wilderness areas throughout North
America for the past fifty years. He has successfully completed sea
kayaking the Inside Passage twice and is the author of two books on
the subject. Besides kayaking, he has backpacked in the backcountry
for hundreds of miles, paddled his canoe down dozens of rivers, and
spent thousands of nights camped under the stars.

About the Author

Exploring the outdoors on foot and in small boats has been a big part of my life since my first camping trip when I was ten years old. I prefer "self-propelled"  modes of travel such as backpacking, canoeing, and kayaking and have used these methods to explore many of the most remote and beautiful areas in North America from Key West, Florida to Denali National Park in Alaska.

The Pacific Northwest and the coasts of British Columbia and Southeast Alaska have become my favorite area to explore. I have traveled solo by sea kayak for thousands of miles through the waterways that together make up the 1,300 mile (2,080 kilometer) Inside Passage. I completed the route from Washington to Alaska twice, once in 2008 and again in 2012.

After completing my first Inside Passage kayaking trip in 2008 I published my first book on the subject, "Point to Point: Exploring the Inside Passage by Kayak".

After completing the route for a second time in 2012, I published my second book, "Alone in the Passage: An Explorers Guide to Sea Kayaking the Inside Passage".
Always the perfect gift
