Overview

Alone in the Passage: An Explorers Guide to Sea Kayaking the Inside Passage is part kayaking travelogue and part long-distance kayaking how-to guide. Readers will acquire a unique insight into the skills necessary to kayak solo for 1,300 miles along the Northwest Pacific Coast from Washington and through British Columbia to Southeast Alaska.
The first half of the book details information that an Inside Passage paddler would need to know before setting off on this incredible journey. Topics such as preparation, nutrition, navigation, physical requirements, communication, weather, wildlife, equipment, camping, tides and currents, dangers, logistics, and paddling techniques are explored in depth.
The second half of the book gives a running account of the daily challenges and triumphs experienced by a solo paddler as he kayaks up the Inside Passage completely alone. Daily journal entries are expanded upon giving the reader a feel for what it is like to travel through a remote wilderness for nearly three months.

About the Author

Denis Dwyer has been exploring wilderness areas since his first canoe camping trip when he was ten years old. Over the years, his excursions have taken him to many remote wilderness areas in North America, Central America, and Hawaii. When not backpacking in the mountains, or paddling a canoe, or kayak downriver, he can usually be found sea kayaking along the Northwest Pacific Coast. The Inside Passage, from Washington to Southeast Alaska, has been his main focus over the last few years, and he has completed the route twice, once in 2008 and again in 2012.
