JonnyQuest Denise,
Here's another site like that overlays nautical charts over the satellite images, so you can see the depth contour lines as well. Just click on hybrid map type and then NOAA paper and move the slider to fade in/out the NOAA chart to your liking. Found at: GeoGarage - Route Preparation:

Wow! found something useful on my own!

I'm sure many of you have this link but I found it to be just what I was looking for! it's interactive for the inlets, charts and Marinas.
