About the Deck Topper Kayaking and Boating map series: Starting in 2019, Wild Coast Publishing is 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 coast before covering the entire south BC coast. You can view the initial mapsheets to be offeredhere. 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.
Don't forget the guide book:The perfect companion to the mapsheet is theBC Coast Explorer Vol. 2, which goes into much greater details about the features, attractions travel logistics and history.Buy two mapsheets or two bundles, and the price of the companion guide book will be reduced 50% at checkout. That's a savings of $17.47.
