On this page we've assembled the marine charts that our guides use to navigate through each of the different trips. Browse through the different tours in charts published by the Canadian Hydrographic Service or the Chilean Hydrographic Service, or take a more interactive trip with Google Maps.

The Johnstone Strait Ultimate tour covers the area of two charts. Our base camp is on the right where the two charts meet. To see the location of our camp and the area we paddle, click on the Google Maps link below.
This chart covers the eastern area of where we kayak in Johnstone Strait. If you look at the left of the chart on the south side of Johnstone Strait you can see the location of Robson Bight.

Great Bear Rainforest
The mothership tour covers such a vast area that it is best viewed in Google Maps. The specific chart numbers change depending on which route the Columbia III takes on that particular trip.
Johnstone Strait Broughton Archipelago
Even in Johnstone Strait and the Broughton Archipelago the mothership tour covers a larger area than most. It is easiest to show with Google Maps.
This chart covers the northern half of the Chonos Archipelago, our playground on this route. We expect to encounter blue whales at the north end, in the Gulf of Corcovado.
This chart shows the entire maze of islands that is the Chonos Archipelago. On our Southern Route we wind through the southern half of the islands toward the San Rafael Glacier.
This chart shows a larger view of the Laguna San Rafael and San Rafael Glacier. We enter through the Rio Tempanos (Iceberg River) and then paddle toward the toe of the glacier.
