With its island-studded Inside Passage, towering fjords, 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 realise 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. Newly revised and updated in 2008, each chapter has simple, straightforward "getting there" directions, information on recreation opportunities and local must-sees and points of interest. To inspire readers along the way and help 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.
