Re: Broughton's BC chart books

Dreamspeaker #5 Broughton cruising guide seems to be popular but I have not used that one. I have used other volumes and they are good and the format is generally the same. My only complaint is that sometimes they say lots of anchorage spots yet there are tonnes of illegal mooring balls.....Anyway, you were asking about charts and these books reference the charts needed to relate to your spot. Again, I realize this isn't your question but maybe can help as they have lots of hand drawn charts as references.

What's your jam? Anchoring? Marina's? The Dreamspeaker was re done a few years back so is reasonably current. I know the Salish Sea Pilot guys were up last year doing revisions to their guides as well. Ebook only but handy. Both those are good for the available marinas and a bunch of anchorages. Waggoners is good too for general info...

If you are more interested in anchorages then I recommend Best Anchorages of the Inside Passage: British Columbia's South Coast From the Gulf Island to Beyond Cape Caution, 2nd ed.. We really like it.

Re: Broughton's BC chart books

Thanks both for your feedback. I was looking for the Broughton's version of the Canadian Nautical chart books 3312 & 3313 for Desolation Sound and the Gulf Islands. It appears that none were made for the Broughton's. That is fine, we will just get the individual charts from CHS. We are huge fans of the Waggoners guides but will look at the Deamspeaker #5.
