The Inside Passage is something of a holy grail for contemporary sea kayakers. It is the most scenic and challenging paddling trip in North America. Kayaking the Inside Passage: A Paddler's Guide from Olympia, Washington to Muir Glacier, Alaska aids kayakers both in planning and in carrying out paddling trips on the rugged Pacific artery that runs along the eastern edge of North America, but also captures the singularity of the Inside Passage through Robert Mill’s absorbing narrative and sometimes nerve-racking, sometimes humorous personal anecdotes. Unlike any other guide, it covers the entire 1,300 mi. length of the Inside Passage along 1 select route that runs from Olympia, Washington, past Vancouver Island, and up through Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. Miller includes complete historical and natural background, along with detailed maps, photos, and proficiency and equipment recommendations.
