Best charts for Madeira, Canaries, Cape Verdes?

In the not too far future I plan a trip to the islands of the (not too) Northern Atlantic and wondering where to get the most accurate/up to date charts? Spain/Canaries seems to be covered by o-Charts (quality?) but neither Portugal nor Cape Verde.

for Cape Verde, I use CM93(2015) and .KAP/MBTiles of Navionics and Google Earth via SASPlanet.

Thank you Jean, I'll have a look at it! Certainly not as easy as UK/Europe...

Re: Best charts for Madeira, Canaries, Cape Verdes?

The oeSENC charts have exactly the same content as the official charts issued by the Hydrographical Offices. Nothing added, nothing dismissed.

Portugal is under negotiations to include them since a while and hopefully we will get this as oeSENC as well. Would come with Madeira and Azores, not sure about Cabo Verde.
The official Cabo Verde charts are edited and issued by PT.

For single charts or a limited region like Cabo Verde you might consider S-63 as well. Licensing for the minimal period (3 months) brings costs down. Charts stay afterwards on the system, just updates cease.

Thank you! Yes, oeSENC was the first I checked and surprised that PT is not available as most EU countries. It would be great to cover both PT islands and CV (used to be PT as well...) in a single deal.
