A Novice Kayakers Guide to North Vancouver Island : Tom's Most Excellent Adventure By Tom Hargraves
eBook (PDF): $4.99
This is a story of Tom, and this laid-off software engineers’ trip around the North end of Vancouver Island. It is a story of naivety, ineptitude, and surprisingly, success. I have annotated... More > my route with small maps, so you shouldn't have any trouble repeating my journey, honest. I have marked the important spots on the overview map. Where you can buy beer, wine, and where you might die. Enjoy! Excerpt: I went between two rocks to an atoll, where I saw fins of Orca whales. I got my camera out and paddled very quietly into the atoll. Then I clumsily clonked my paddle down onto the kayak, so I could hold the camera with two hands. Suddenly all three Orcas turned directly at me and started finning at full speed towards me. There I was, 1km offshore, all alone, with three primary ocean predators aiming directly at me. Oh-oh I thought...< Less

This book is the sequel to The Voyage of Drift Away: Stamford to Annapolis. The first book detailed getting Drift Away in running order, the terror of losing both engines off Sandy Hook, and other... More > amusing stories. This book is truly more like a cruising guide, but rather than detail the trip and the marinas we stayed at as other guides do, I will tell you about some of the people we met and the fun we had. Most of the folks were other live aboards, but not all. Some were passing through, and others were locals. A friend once described cruisers as a small town that moved up and down the coast. live aboards tend to stay in one place for a long time before moving on, if they move on at all. That is the fun of the live aboard lifestyle. If you like a place, stay. If you don't, move on and explore the next place. This book has a goodly number of photographs. I love photography and I hope you do too. If not, perhaps you will after reading this book. Sit back and enjoy the trip!< Less
