The information is provided in a user-friendly format enabling the reader to readily see where they have been and where they are going, in relation to the other stops. From the friendly anchorages in the San Juans to the remote wilderness of the Discovery Coast and on to Prince Rupert via the Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound. They include places to anchor when travelling the primary waterways between major destinations. The pages take the mariner from one anchorage to the next in a successive, geographic progression.
