Description


Rugged yet serene, the north and west coasts of Vancouver Island are unlike anywhere else. Wave-sculpted rocks, sea caves and fjords, old-growth forests, incredible wildlife, and white sandy beaches make this an unbeatable destination. The Wild Coast, the first of Kimantas's three guides to all the coasts of British Columbia, is now available in a completely revised and updated edition.This book is for those who want to explore the coast from Cape Scott in the north all the way to Esquimalt in the south, whether by kayak or boat, on foot, or even in an RV. An introduction to the local geography, history, and ecology lures you into each region, and information about attractions in the area allows you to plan side excursions. Hiking trails, wilderness campsites, and locations to view wildlife are all marked on the more than 90 maps that are scattered throughout the chapters. And kayakers especially will appreciate the insider information on good beach locations, launch points, reefs, and hazards.
