With its island-studded Inside Passage, towering fiords, open-ocean beaches, quaint villages and sparkling cities, the BC coast is known as one of the world's great maritime cruising destinations. What many travellers may not realize is that you don't need to own a yacht or go on a cruise ship to explore it. This indispensable book shows how you can use BC's world-class ferry and coastal road system to reach the coast's most spectacular places in the comfort of your family car. And for those who want to go farther, lace on your hiking boots, grab a paddle, hop aboard a floatplane, or switch into four-wheel-drive and head off into the back of beyond - there's a lot more than just road travel in this book.Each chapter has simple, straightforward "getting there" directions, full information on recreation opportunities and local must-sees and points of interest. To inspire you along the way and help you dream up new trips, the book includes anecdotes and facts on local plants, trees, wildlife and sea life - all infused with the enthusiasm of two writers whose love of the coast spills over onto every page.Cruise the coast for a weekend or a year, for business or pleasure, from your car or your favourite comfy armchair - just make sure to take this terrific little guidebook with you.
