Twenty-five of the most spectacular coastlines spanning the seven seas from the Northwest Territories to Baja, from the Great Barrier Reef to the Everglades, from the Greek Isles to Tierra del Fuego, from the Red Sea to Fiji. These are just a few of the prime waters author, naturalist, and sea-kayaking guide Jonathan Hanson has explored over fifteen years. Like no other adventure sport, sea kayaking takes you to secret places rarely seen by humans, though often teeming with wildlife. Readers will learn how to see powerful orcas off the coast of British Columbia, dolphins racing across the Sea of Cortez off Baja, beluga whales cruising the Arctic Ocean, gray seals and puffins sharing the cliffs of Scotland s Hebrides."
