By A Customer on September 21, 1999
We use this book extensively whenever asail or on a bike in the San Juan Islands. It gives the level of knowledge that a local resident would have and gets you into interesting spots (like False Bay on San Juan Island) that many locals may not know. The diagrams in the book are very helpful.
It also has a number of references to guidebooks on local flora and fauna.

This is a surprisingly good book. Full of details and information second (maybe) to that of a long time resident. Excellent historical points of interest and very good maps.

This is a great book for an island-by-island survey of what you can see and do in the San Juans. The authors point out in the intro that it is geared towards sail boaters. I was interested in paddling info and, despite the paddler on the front cover, I didn't find much specific info for this audience. It seems like a great guide for sail boating though, with specific tips like how to avoid various submerged rocks in quiet coves and inlets, and where to find dinghys and anchors.
