I had previously kayaked using the standard canadian nautical maps. Even for the smallest trips, I would need a couple of them. Constantly need to refold them during the day.
These atlases solve all those problems. Big scale but with plenty of detail. I have had both nautical and these atlases on one trip and I kept turning to the Atlas - clearer and get a bigger picture.

The fact that they are waterproof is a big plus for that time you do need to flip the page in roughish water. I used one of the atlases for a 3 week trip last year abd the pages did get slightly damp between the laminate. Water will eventually seap throught the not perfect seals. I just use the atlas with a map case, no further issues.

Adding in all the extra info these maps have, eg campsites, towns, current speeds, hazards etc. they are a must have for any vancouver island trip.

Contains a lot of useful information, but you'll need charts to go along with it. It is not a chart atlas.
Dusho
An excellent tool for planning your next trip. I would consider using a BC atlas for shorter trips. But for the extended excursions, you still cannot go wrong with a good old Hydrographic Chart.
Ricep
Awesome detailed map. This actually made our trip epic! Worth every penny!
