This map of Vancouver Island is a classic. Whether you're cruising the Gulf Islands, chasing swell on the west coast, timing the currents to paddle through the Broughtons, or rounding Cape Scott for a downwind run south, Vancouver Island is a waterperson's paradise.

The map includes features that matter to a waterperson like the key lightstations and those places where character is built like Nahwitti Bar and Seymour Narrows. The towns on the map are the ones that are a good stop for provisions. The compass rose is based off a marine chart. The scale is in nautical miles. You can see the Canada-US border to know where you might get into trouble from border security.

Story Notes: Born and raised on Vancouver Island, this map is where it all began for me. From my early years hiking the coastal trails; to my 20s working as a kayak guide; then working for an environmental consulting company after I got my degree; and eventually becoming captain of my own sailboat. This island made me who I am today, and making landfall on it will always feel like coming home.
