Tim has called on 40 years of experience kayaking this part of the world to fill this book with useful information and great kayaking ideas. As well as the 'does' and 'don'ts' he provides itinerary ideas for singly day trips, to multi-day trips to big adventures. And it is family friendly. Much of his experience in these waters is with his wife and children as well as the families of friends. In the back of the book is a list of important contacts.
Throughout the book are boxes of information that add some colour to locations, including history and anecdotes of charaters Tim has met on the way.
The maps cover in detail the best parts of kayaking the northern Queensland coast between Townsville and Cooktown, and the Whitsunday region. These maps will provide locations to the best camp sites, where to find oysters and coconuts, fresh water and where to swim and snorkle. They also explain tidal flows.
This book is A5 size (half of a standard A4), to fit easily with the rest of your supplies. Its tough cover and glossy pages will help it tolerate the rigors of an adventurous outing.
Throughout Tims kayaking adventures within these regions, he has amassed a great collection of beautiful and informative images. From these you can get a real sense of what you could experience by kayaking throughout this part of the world.
