The Broughtons:Did you know that Glendale Cove in Knight Inlet has one of the highest concentrations of Grizzly Bears on the west coast of British Columbia? Management and visitation to the area is under the auspices of Guardians from the Da’naxda’xw/Awaetlatla First Nations Band. Procedures for entering the cove, anchoring, and bear viewing are detailed in the 2020 edition of the Waggoner Cruising Guide. You’ll find many more updates in the latest Waggoner edition, including the new docks at Minstrel Island, once known as the center of activity in The Broughtons.
San Juan Islands:If you love hiking, you won’t want to miss the new map of Cypress Island, detailing the extensive trail system across the island’s public lands. Anchorage and mooring options are also described and shown on the reference map. Readers of the 2020 Waggoner Guide will discover San Juan Preservation properties that are accessible by dinghy or kayak, offering hiking trails and outstanding views.
Desolation Sound:Hiking trails connecting Laura Cove, Melanie Cove, and Tenedos Bay are described and mapped in the latest edition of the Waggoner Guide. Did you also know that a trail leads from Von Donop Inlet all the way to Squirrel Cove? There is always something new to discover in each new edition of the Waggoner Guide.
The reference material in Chapter 1 continues to receive positive feedback from boaters, thankful for the latest resources regarding Northwest marine weather, new equipment, U.S. and Canada Customs, anchoring, and other helpful information. New topics are added each year, such as how to use the U.S. Customs ROAM App; how to handle ELCI shore power interruptions; radio communications, and much more. New for 2020 is the order of topics on recorded VHF weather broadcasts; and improved maps of weather buoy stations. Boaters will also find a handy list of “Speed Limit and No Wake Zones,” a convenient reference. The Waggoner Guide, detailing marinas, anchorages, and passages for cruising the Pacific Northwest continues to be “Your Most Trusted Source for Northwest Boating Information.”
