Jennifer Furber, November 24, 2008 (view all comments by Jennifer Furber)
Everyone from this area always recommends Gunkholing in the San Juans as "THE" guide, however I won't go anywhere without this one! Detailed map of approaches, descriptions of anchorages and a brief history of each destination made this the only guide we use while cruising the San Juan area. After checking it out from our local library for twelve consecutive months, we are finally purchasing our own copy. We look forward to highlighting and dog-earing this guide for years to come.
