He left the British Isles in 1791 and sailed via Cape of Good Hope to Australia, where he made a survey of the southwest coast and New Zealand, to Tahiti and Hawaii. In April 1792, Vancouver left Hawaii and sailed to the Californian coast. He reached the Northwest Coast in 1792 and spent two years surveying the coastline, resulting in the most correct maps of the Northwest made up to that time. Vancouver's explorations on the northwest coast included the Port of San Francisco, New Albio, Nootka Sound, and the Straits of Juan de Fuca., Size : 750x610 (mm), 29.5x24 (Inches), Coloring: Black & White, Category: ; Maps United States West Oregon; Maps United States West California
