Book: Cruising the Northwest Coast

Some friends here in Ensenada, told us about a good book for those contemplating a coastwise cruise from San Francisco to the Puget Sound.

Cruising the Northwest Coast was written by George Benson. He describes lesser known anchorages along the coasts of California, Oregon and Washington. Many of the stopping points are only a days sail apart. It is a good supplement for the Coast Pilot on the better known anchorages. The book provides one or more photographs of the approaches, anchoring tips, weather warnings and a listing of services for each anchorage.

The book seems to be self-published and does not have an ISBN number. It is not available on It can be ordered from in association with Compatible Manufacturing for $23.
