This is my second travel guide to the San Juan's.
The first published in 2014, "San Juan Islands Cruise Guide,"
is still your detailed boaters bible to the marine parks.
Land travelers will find that this new
"San Juan Travel Guide," is exactly what they want.

Please rest assured that we have taken care to not include material that may become dated. This guide will always be your go to resource today and tomorrow.

The new guide is a companion resource to my cruise guide
- not a replacement.
Boat travelers to the San Juan's will benefit having both.

Load your car and pack your bags.
Bring your bikes, boats, kayaks, pets and
children to the San Juan's today.

If you happen to see me, please say hello - John
From one traveler to another: We first came to the San Juan's and surrounding area by boat with our young children. We were armed with a few old car traveler type guidebooks, a chart, and not much cash. Nearly two decades, five sailboats and two powerboats later and after calling three local communities our homeaway base, I decided to write a guidebook. The first travel guide, published in 2014 is primarily for boaters, but this one, to be published in 2017 is for all travelers. My intention with both books was not to write flowery prose selling the islands, but address basic first time visitor needs and fill in the local knowledge gaps so prevalent when you are from out of town. This book is big at 8.5 x 11 on purpose, the easy to read large garish labels plastered across the maps and charts are regrettably unattractive, but they are to help readers make plans and keep oriented not win accolades. I invite you to visit my website (an ongoing work) Hopefully you will enjoy articles, see color pictures, plus lots more. The website has e-mail and comment areas. Feel free to write if you have a question. I look forward to hearing from you, or even saying hello somewhere in the San Juans. John
