It's official, my Nakwakto Rapids article will be in the September/October issue of Sea Kayaker magazine.

It'll be tough waiting, I know.

In the meantime, check out "Tides of Nakwakto"
video of flood, slack & ebb tides through Nakwakto tidal rapids from Tremble island.

Nakwakto Rapids is here:

51.096688 , -127.503110

I capsized near here:

I just watched the video showing flood, slack & ebb tides & can't believe what a difference there is between different phases of the tide!

I shot that with the same camera I shot the article stills with - Canon SX120IS.

Fantastic camera.

Have you seen the rest of the albums?

That's one scary rapid - enough to give you lasting nightmares.

Yes, I'd love a copy of the article!
