From the Author
I hope you enjoy this revised classic Pacific Northwest paddling guide. We removed a few trips and added several more to freshen the contents up a bit. New trips in include in British Columbia: Sooke Harbor, Victoria Harbor, outer Victoria from the harbor entry to Cadboro Bay, and Wallace Island off Saltspring Island. In the US, new trips include the Elwha River, Protection Island, and paddling from Kingston to Point No Point to name a few.
From the Back Cover
Observe seabirds nesting on Protection Island off the Olympic Peninsula, circumnavigate Shaw Island in the San Juans, or view intertidal life in Canada's Gulf Islands. The intercoastal waters of the Pacific Northwest offers some of the most stunning scenery and marine life available to paddlers. From the protected coves and estuaries of south Puget Sound to the swift currents of Deception Pass and the bustling harbor of Victoria, this completely updated and expanded third edition offers detailed paddling information for kayakers, canoeists, stand up paddlers, and anyone with a small human powered craft.

Second, the descriptions are concise yet contain important information for those planning to go to the locations for their first time. I especially like that relevant charts and other resources are listed for each route, because stylized small maps in guidebooks are often barely (or not) adequate by themselves.
Third, the book includes a nice distribution of routes in the area--not too heavy in one area--so that the title represents itself fairly well.
Fourth, as a western WA resident who does *not* live in the Seattle area, I like that there are some selections on the Olympic Peninsula side.
I could impishly suggest that the title might've been "Kayaking the Salish Sea", but many people out of the region would not know what that was, and some locals hate the term Salish Sea.
Overall, I'm glad I bought this book and look forward to doing more trips from it this season. Highly recommend it.
