This is just to demonstrate "Full Screen" capability
(iPad compatible sample further down)
This particular chart is a good example of the superbly detailed official chart coverage available in UK waters. Make it go "Full Screen", drag and pan around, enlarge or reduce to get the view you want. Full screen charts are best enjoyed on the largest screen monitors you have ! Although online charts are "Not to be used for navigation purposes", there are plenty of uses.. read on. Also see: Legal Stuff...Terms and Conditions
There are 1000's of pages of freely given information on this site, but FULL MEMBERS have access to another area of the site altogether.. an exclusive place where non members can't go. With over £12,000's worth of charts & tide tables viewable in some unique ways:
This is a VisiChart
For a one off non repeating fee of just £25 you can become a valued member of VisitMyHarbour (let's put that £25 into perspective... it's the cost of a one off pub evening with friends, a few gallons of fuel, an hour or two of work.. not a big deal)
So how can this service be of use to ME ?
For yachtsmen, motorboaters, charterers, sea anglers, divers, trailer sailers and kayakers:

Not just 100% chart coverage of the UK and Ireland, now other international areas in "Full Screen" zoomify format and HTML5 iPad compatible versions. These are proper official raster charts, same as the paper ones.
For the international blue water voyager, the magnificent and growing chart collection on display offers a unique opportunity to study and plan your next voyage. Plan landfalls, prepare alternative plans, work out what charts you really DO need to buy, and which you can live without. For a transatlantic circuit, or a trip to the Med via the sea route, all the charts you need are here online. Many are detailed enough to use as harbour plans... anchorages in the Cape Verdes, West Indian landfalls, the Spanish Rias, etc.
