NOAA charts can be ordered directly on this web site in the following formats:

"POD" (print on demand),
and POD laminated NOAA charts (in US waters) can be printed to your order in our store in the Ocean Grafix charts on demand process.  These are full color, full size, Coast Guard and NOAA approved charts printed based on the current edition with corrections applied from the US Notices to Mariners bringing the chart up to date.

"Paper"  NOAA charts conventionally printed
by NOAA of the current edition, but without corrections, can also be supplied by Captain's, for a price slightly lower than POD.  Captain's stocks conventional paper NOAA charts for the US Pacific Coast and Alaska, but would order charts from NOAA to fill any orders for Atlantic, or Gulf Coasts, or Great Lakes waters.  This may add a week to order fulfillment time, but the price is the same as paper charts from stock. 

NGA charts from the US government for foreign waters outside NOAA coverage are supplied in the current edition in the Ocean Grafix charts on demand process, but without corrections.  NGA charts cannot be orded on this web site, but can be ordered conventionally by phone, fax, e-mail, or in person from our Seattle store.  Many NGA editions are decades old, and would require scores of corrections to be brought up to date. 

For serious mariners wanting corrected charts in foreign waters (other than Canada) we recommend the British Admiralty charts (see Admiralty section on this web site.)  British Admiralty charts are hand-corrected before being sold.

For Canadian waters we recommend the Canadian Hydrographic Service charts, also available for the Canadian Pacific Coast on this web site, and for other Canadian waters from our store.
