Hi wristwister. We are pressing to finish as quick as we can, but I fear we won't get Northern Georgia Strait online till late summer at the earliest. We have discussed focusing on Puget Sound, as it's closer to being ready, and not come out with N. Georgia Strait until 2016, but it's just talk at this point.

Sorry about that, but thanks for the interest.

Re: PNW - Cruising Guides.

Foojin, thanks for resurrecting this thread. Very timely, as I'm planning to cruise north as far as I can get the end of June. This guide looks perfect, as I can load it on the same tablet I use for navigation.

But ... the guide I really need is the "Northern Georgia Strait", which your site says is "in the works". When do you think that will be available?

Here's me blowing our horn.

I know your post is a couple years old, but I should note that Pacific Coast Pilot became Salish Sea Pilot soon after you posted that.

And after 17,000 free downloads of our guides to the Gulf Islands, San Juan Islands and Desolation Sound, we did complete updates of them and this spring started charging $5 for each ebook, hoping to cover our costs.

We will soon add guides to Puget Sound and Northern Georgia Strait, essentially covering all of the Salish Sea.

Sorry about the commercial.

The Evergreen Cruising Giudes, for both the East coast and West coast of Vancouver Island are all the charts one needs, from Olympia to Cape Caution.

If someone could also share any raster or vector charts for BC we will be very gratefull.

We could share some materials aubou European water eg. North Sea, Baltic Sea, Meditarenian

please help

Not much for free. Official charts in Canada are not copyright free. The charter company should supply them.

Online stuff - Northwest Boating Northwest Boat Travel On-Line and The Waggoner Cruising Guide, Annual Guide to Northwest Boating from Weatherly Press

Which charter companies are you considering?

Livia Cross posting this from my post on SSCA because it seemed like a useful item for PNWers.

This may be old news for some but new news for me.

You can download the current/tide tables for Canada in the nicely formatted .pdf version for free here.

I knew you could access individual days online for Canada but didn't know that I could download and print sections rather than buying the volumes. And I can keep them on my computer/Nook. Very nice.

If only I could download the entire volume at once instead of section by section. Still, this was useful for us.
