Sorry, they don't do Chart Kits for Atlantic Canada like we do :-) Which is a bit odd, since 'unauthorized/not to be used for navigation' kits are available for the Great Lakes
, and British Columbia
Best source I've found for CHS charts has been Maryland
I've never found a better price
than theirs, their online catalog is reasonably easy to use, and their overall service
has been excellent... And, on some of the smaller harbor charts sometimes found in NFLD and Labrador, their price
will be a bit lower to reflect the size of the chart... Whereas vendors like Bluewater
and Landfall Navigation
seem to fix the same price on every chart in the CHS catalog...
You'll love Nova Scotia, it's a wonderful cruising ground... Do you think you'll manage to get used to cruising without lobster pots? A trip up that way might spoil you forever, you know... ;-)
The Bras 'd Or is fantastic, as is all of Cape Breton... If you do decide to head
into the Gulf of St Lawrence to PEI, I'd suggest you consider trying to get out to the Óles de la Madeleine, if you have the time... A very cool place, one rarely visited by cruising boats, it seems...
