Nav charts

I'd like to find some good navigation charts for an upcoming trip. We will be taking off from the east coast of Florida and head to the west coast of Puerto Rico via Bahamas, Turks, DR, and then on to mayaguez, pr.
Can you recommend some good charts and where to purchase?
Thanks

Re: Nav charts

You may get a jump on a few of them from the NOAA Chart Locator.
(or it may be too late)

Re: Nav charts

I second NOAA charts. They are the official chart provider for US waters and are free to download. When you download from NOAA, you get a corrected and up to date chart. You have to download weekly if you want your charts to be current. You can also check out NGA. The Navy uses NGA charts and are free to download for US waters. NOAA charts are better though. For larger scale charts in the Bahamas, you might have to purchase from somewhere. Bluewater Books in Fort Lauderdale should be able to point you in the right direction.
