Forgot I had this link to downloadable NOAA charts. you should be able to save them on your computer for later viewing:

Pacific Coast NOAA Nautical Charts

Also thought you might be interested in these, real time ocean conditions and NOAA ocean forecasts, just type in your location:

Northern California NOAA/CDIP Buoy Data

Marine Forecast for Latitude 39.66°N and Longitude 124.52°W

My apologies if you already have all this, hope you have a good trip, where ever you are headed.
