The Inside Passage is among the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. Dense with challenge, rich in wildlife and lore, witness to little-known history, these waters will enchant her supplicants and reward the adventurous with lifetime memories.

What do you need to go? A well-found boat and time. The presenter shares his experiences and images of three trips from Seattle to Alaska, and many shorter excursions on coastal British Columbia over the past decade, including how to plan, what to read, what to take, who to take, and where to go. 

What do you need in the way of safety equipment? How about re-provisioning? Tidal gates, planning for exposed passages, the intricacies of anchoring and ground tackle, navigation, and managing exposure to weather will be addressed. 

The Inside Passage is a dream many consider unapproachable. In fact, it is doable with modest experience, a modest boat, and a modest budget. Start planning your adventure with this presentation.
