Charts for the South Pacific

Hi All,

I need paper charts for a South Pacific crossing. I've tried to buy them in the east Caribbean but to no avail.

Does anyone know if South Pacific paper charts are available in Panama, say Colon?

Thanks

Re: Charts for the South Pacific

I have been using Bellinghams for the past 5 years. They have been sending charts to me all over the world. Fast service and low prices so what's not to like. They have lots of French navy charts which are the best for FP and New Caledonia.

Re: Charts for the South Pacific

There are Pacific guidebooks available at IWW and Budget and they do include charts of islands,anchorages and ports.
- - For actual charts, paper or electronic you will probably need to have them mailed/shipped to you.
