Paddling the Sunshine Coast

Paddling the Sunshine Coast Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paddling the Sunshine Coast will introduce both new and experienced sea kayakers to the matchless paddling opportunities stretching from Howe Sound in the south to Desolation Sound in the north, and including Sechelt Inlet and Jervis Inlet. One of the most scenic areas in the world, the Sunshine Coast offers everything from surging saltwater cataracts to calm, contained coves. One can observe eagles, all manner of sea ducks, otters, mink, coon, intertidal creatures and even the occasional whale.

This informative and user-friendly book is the only guide to kayaking in this paddler's paradise scattered with secluded islands, coves and inlets. Bodhi and Dorothy have combed the coast from top to bottom, discovering all the hidden treasures in between, and they have documented their personal experience along with photographs, illustrations and maps. For paddlers of all experience levels, the introduction includes essential tips on dealing with the Sunshine Coast's weather, tides, and various hazards, camping with minimal impact on the environment, and interacting with the flora and fauna.

Bodhi and Dorothy Drope have been wandering the wilds of Canada since their childhoods in Manitoba. On arriving in BC in the early '80s they discovered the joys of sea kayaking. They were so taken by the sport that they now own and operate a sea kayaking company on the Sunshine Coast. The idea for this book occurred several years ago and since then each trip has seen them documenting with pen, paper and camera.
