In Paddling the Salish Sea, professional kayaker and paddling coach Rob Casey guides paddlers to the most rewarding destinations across the region. This comprehensive guide covers everything from the quiet inlets of the South Sound to an entirely new section featuring the fjords, waterfalls, and local waterways around Vancouver, B.C. In between, paddlers will find urban explorations near Seattle and Everett; routes on the lakes, rivers, and shorelines of the Olympic Peninsula, Hood Canal, and the islands of the North Sound; and even more new choices in Canada’s Gulf Islands and around Victoria, B.C. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced paddlers all can find beautiful, rewarding routes for their skill levels.

Casey’s expert advice on navigating the marine environment, paddling safety, gear, trip planning, and more provides all the practical information paddlers need to prepare for a successful, safe outing. For sea or flatwater kayakers, canoeists, rowers, or stand-up paddle boarders, Paddling the Salish Sea is the must-have guide for discovering the wonders of the Puget Sound.
