310 Vancouver Island North Inside Passage Chart Assistant
About North Vancouver Island: The protected inner waters of the southern British Columbia coastline give way to the more open and wild shores of North Vancouver Island past Port Hardy. Protected almost in its entirety as Cape Scott Provincial Park, this is a rugged area for mariners, explorers and (thanks to the North Coast Trail) even hikers who wish to get away from it all.
About this mapsheet: The Inside Passage Chart Assistant series is composed of 11 mapsheets designed to enable transit of the British Columbia coast from Washington State to Smith Inlet by using a uniformly scaled and continuous set of mapsheets. Since most mariners use electronic navigation, these mapsheets can be used for logistics and planning where a broad visual overview is helpful. You can read more about the Inside Passage series here. All Chart Assistants are printed on heavy synthetic paper to withstand the toughest conditions. Please note: This mapsheet is single-sided and contains the map only, unlike the Deck Topper series and most other Wild Coast mapsheets that are dual sided and supported by interpretive text. This mapsheet is designed primarily for mariners seeking visual orientation only. For extra interpretation for this area, please see mapsheets #243 and #407 as well as the BC Coast Explorer guide book Volume 1.
