239 Gilford Island Kayaking and Boating Map
New for 2022.
About this region: This mapsheet represents the little-travelled north and east sides of Gilford Island, plus two major inlets: Knight Inlet and Kingcome Inlet. The established paddling routes tend to end at the Burdwood Group and Echo Bay, keeping these waterways outside established traveling routes, making it a select visiting destination to all but a few curious explorers, which is perfect if your aim is to meander through areas rarely visited. This area tends not to have the major highlights of some other destinations, but likely the rewards won’t be mapped. They’ll be yours alone to discover.
What's included: One side is the large, regional map showing features and attractions in unrivalled detail, while the opposite side includes logistical and trip planning information to make an accompanying guide book unnecessary.
The mapsheet construction: This mapsheet uses the latest printing technology to provide a high-quality printed image on waterproof/durable synthetic polymer stock. The stock is is significantly thicker than most papers at 10 mil weight, making it extremely durable.
New! All 200-series mapsheets now include UTM grid lines. Learn to understand and make the most of them.
Don't forget! This mapsheet is part of a series. Make sure you have the correct mapsheets for your trip, and purchase bundle packages to save $$ if you need more than one mapsheet to complete your adventure.

About the Wild Coast map series: In 2019, Wild Coast Publishing began embarking on an ambitious program to provide an unbroken series of mapsheets covering the entire BC coastline. The series begins with mapsheet #201 Brooks Peninsula and extends in order down the outer Vancouver Island and up the southern BC coast then finally north through the Inside Passage. You can view the currently available list of mapsheets here. The maps are designed for paddlers and boaters, right down to the size -- a handy 24x18", slightly smaller than a traditional street map and so easy to manage when on the water. Use it as a "deck topper" for easy visualization as you travel on the water, use it around the campfire or your anchorage at night to plan your next day's route, and at home for research when your journey is still in the dream stage.
