The Coast to Coast Walk is a 182-mile (293 km) unofficial and mostly unsignposted long-distance footpath in Northern England. Devised by Alfred Wainwright, it passes through three contrasting national parks: the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the North York Moors National Park. Wainwright recommends that walkers dip their booted feet in the Irish Sea at St Bees and, at the end of the walk, in the North Sea at Robin Hood's Bay.

It covers both the Inside and Outside passages, with copious information on campsites, landings, launch sites, hiking trails, history, geography, weather, ecology, hazards, attractions and services. Includes colour photos and maps.

As well as his pick of Coast stories from the last decade in Britain, Neil seeks out new stories for the guide. From there he explores a tragic tale that still haunts the fishing town of Eyemouth, before taking in the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to make a dramatic archaeological discovery.

The ultimate guide to exploring B.C.'S untamed coast.

From author and kayaker John Kimantas comes the second volume of the highly successful Wild Coast series.

This time, Kimantas takes readers on an exhilarating journey through the Inside and Outside Passages of BC from north Vancouver Island to the Alaska border. Each chapter in this comprehensive guidebook explores a part of B.C.'S remote and rarely visited stretch of coastline and discusses the region's Native and European history, geography, weather, ecology, attractions and services. Detailed maps show the major points of interest -- from the best campgrounds to the ideal spots to view wildlife.

Included are lists with the key features of each area:

Amenities Hazards Launch sites Parks and ecological reserves Hiking trails

Each book in the Wild Coast series is written from first-hand research and exploration: Kimantas has gathered the information and photographs while kayaking B.C.'S breathtaking coastline. Although The Wild Coast II provides specific information for kayakers, anyone interested in exploring the coast will find this guide thorough and useful.


Qucid
This is a book for sea kayakers intending to paddle the North Coast of British Columbia. I'm an American, but I paddle the coast of BC a lot. I used to use American sources to plan trips in BC but I found that many campsites referenced in American sources were sketchily referenced, overgrown with vegetation from not been used in a long time, or were not solid campsites because they were only usable in neap tide conditions (underwater near new moon or full moon) when overnight tides are highest. I was having these difficulties when I met a Canadian kayak guide instructor from the University of Victoria who asked me a disarming question. She asked, "Why would you rely on American sources to paddle in Canada? Why don't you use Canadian sources?" I was ashamed to say I never considered that. She recommended this book. It's hard to find, except online, even in Canada. The book contains invaluable information ("local knowledge") of conditions on the coast of BC, including excellent maps, that isn't present in American sources by Americans just passing through BC on the way to Alaska. The author here is Canadian, whose agenda is more limited to exhaustively documenting BC waters. This same author also (John Kimantas) offers "The BC Coast Explorer and marine trail guide" that comes in three volumes, published by Coast & Kayak. There is clear overlap in information between the two series of books, but I don't regard that as significant in light of the costs of getting there and being there to begin with. Every campsite has a reported GPS position, and the indicated campsites are further distinguished by symbols showing the quality of the site and whether it is usable at all moon phase and tidal conditions. Each is indicated on high quality maps appended to each chapter. For some areas, the publisher also offers waterproof nautical maps for use on deck, and together they are the ultimate source of information for paddling the BC coast. The author has at least one book that includes information on hiking trails, but I haven't read that because my hiking is limited to the beach and around the campsite. More information is available at www.thewildcoast.ca. There are good, credible American sources, such as Denis Dwyer's "Alone in the Passage," which I recommend, but that is focused on the technique and tactics of paddling the Inside Passage from Puget Sound to Skagway, Alaska. Dwyer's book references many of the same campsites, including GPS coordinates of campsites personally used by Dwyer, but by design it can't contain the depth of detail about the BC coast available in a three-volume series published in Canada for regular Canadian paddlers in BC. John Kimantas is unequivocally the authority on paddling BC, and his related maps (published separately) are the best, where available. The printing quality and paper used is excellent. These books are expensive, but worth every penny. Americans going to paddle in Canada should plan using Canadian source materials. To me at least, that now appears obvious. I'd like also to mention to my fellow Americans that another invaluable Canadian resource is available online, including interactive satellite maps, without cost or membership at www.bcmarinetrails.org.

This is a necessary kayakers resourse to this part of Canada. Until Kimantis wrote this book (and its two companions) there was little if any information about kayaking Canada's western coast outside of the Gulf Islands. Thanks John!

The Wild Coast series is a must for sea kayakers wanting to explore the BC coastlines. The details are enticing, and the campsite recommendations are spot on. I use this series all the time in planning 8-17 day expeditions through BC waters.

Fantastic book

There is no other book that covers what this does and few guide books with this quality of info & maps written by such an experienced paddler. The author has done a great service passing on his knowledge.
Only criticism is it is difficult to locate campsites on the maps provided.
