Re: Barkley Sound, West Coast Vancouver Island

The NEXUS pass doesn't help either. American boats still have to go to one of their ports of entry. The NEXUS pass DOES sometimes allow american boats to clear back into america by phone. Not much help for your trip, because if you're headed for Neah Bay and they say, on the phone call, "you need to proceed to Port Angeles without stopping" you're going to be in for a crappy trip.

I'd have to agree about radar being pretty much a requirement. Basic ones are cheap nowadays.
