Dreamspeaker Cruising Guide, Volume 4

The San Juan Islands (second edition)
Fully revised and updated in 2016! Just south of Vancouver in Washington State lies a distinctive island triangle known locally as the San Juans. This enchanting cluster of islands offers boaters the pleasure of cruising in safe and protected waters while enjoying the diversity and individual personality of each island. The allure of the San Juans lies in the short distances between destinations, the ease of provisioning, the wellmaintained marinas and the friendly charm of the villages and towns, beautiful beaches, lakes, shaded forest walks and intriguing historic sites.

Book Description

These popular cruising companions offer charts, tips and data that will enhance the enjoyment and safety of any voyage. The guides feature informative and charming hand-drawn shoreline plans of selected marinas and small boat anchorages, ranging from safe all-weather havens to secluded picnic spots and marine parks. Intended to complement official hydrographic charts, the Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides accurately pinpoint both popular and little-known highlights in BC and Pacific Northwest coastal waters that every sailor, power-boater or kayaker should know.

Written in the personal style of a boater’s logbook, the accompanying text provides vital information about featured locations, plus notes on recreational activities for adults and children. Here you will find the best spots to anchor your boat, share a romantic sunset, enjoy a fine meal, pick blackberries in season—even locate a welcome hot shower or cappuccino!

Aerial photographs illustrate safe approaches to the destinations, while full-colour scenic photographs showcase the splendour of the Pacific Northwest Coast.
