Canadian Sailing Directions available for free download

The Sailing Directions booklets are an indispensable companion to nautical charts. The Canadian Hydrographic Service has now made these available as a free download. They are a great tool for planning and assisting in navigation because they provide information that cannot be shown on a chart. It is the mariner’s responsibility to maintain their digital Sailing Directions file by ensuring that the latest version is always downloaded.

All hard copy Print on Demand (POD) Sailing Directions booklets are being printed with current Notices to Mariners updates applied. These POD booklets are available for purchase from authorized chart dealers located across Canada and around the world.

A mariner may, of course print their own booklet. In that case, it is imperative that the current Notices to Mariners updates are applied. Mariners are advised to check the charts page after the 15th of a given month to ensure that they have the latest version in hand,
