Pacific pilot guides

Hello all,

We'll be heading out from Panama back to Australia in about a month and as such we're trying to find info on the best pilots to get for this huge area. None of the stores here seem to stock any guides.

Just wondering what people have have used and recommend.

Re: Pacific pilot guides

In the USA, in the US waters they are called Coast Pilots and outside waters Sailing Directions. The latest (2014) Pacific and SE Asia (less US territories) comes from here:
Maritime Safety Information

US Coast Pilots come from here:
United States Coast Pilot®
US South Pacific islands are in Coast Pilots 7.

Downloads are free. I would have included the Pdf's, but they apparently are bigger than allowed on this forum.
