Charlie's Charts North to Alaska
Charles and Margo Wood
Victoria, B.C. to Glacier Bay, Alaska
This cruising guide provides navigation information for boaters departing from Victoria and travelling along the British Columbia and Southeast Alaskan coasts, following the protected waters of the Inside Passage to Glacier Bay, Alaska. It is divided into eight sections with full colour photographs and a sketched chart indicating marinas or anchorages where a cruising boat with a speed of 6 knots can find moorage as it travels along the coast.
Each location has a detailed sketch and description of a safe approach, recommended anchorages and shore facilities. Crucial information, such as the transit of passes and the passage of Cape Caution, is given particular attention with guidelines for timing and recommended routes. A customised weather map provides excellent information. For cruisers unable to make the entire trip to Alaska, shorter trips to spectacular areas on the coast are also described, such as Princess Louisa Inlet, Desolation Sound, Broughton Archipelago, Fiordland Recreation Area, Kitimat and the Kitlope.
