THE GUIDE TO BAJA SEA KAYAKING” is a vibrant exposé of the entire inside coast of Baja California. Its beautiful, satellite-image maps with lat/long clicks and specifically waypointed descriptions of beaches and headlands are the equivalent of three or four marine charts. Book chapters are laid out as popular legs within an overall north-to-south run. All Sea of Cortez islands are included in a circumnavigational format. Launches, town maps, and remote fresh water stops are all here. Interspersed alongside the maps are color pictures depicting the leg described.Additionally, a chapter on the placid and popular Bahia Magdalena on the Pacific side of Baja is included.
