ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions (Pilots) provide essential information to support port entry and coastal navigation for all classes of ships at sea. Split across 75 volumes, coverage includes the world’s main commercial shipping routes and ports.
Each volume of Sailing Directions offers:
Information on navigational hazards, buoyage, pilotage, regulations, general notes on countries, port facilities, seasonal currents, ice and climatic conditions. This information, when used alongside official ADMIRALTY charts, can help to increase situational awareness on the bridge.
High quality diagrams and photography to help bridge-crews understand critical information during the passage planning stage.
Worldwide official coverage to support safe and compliant navigation within main commercial shipping routes and ports. This coverage is split across 75 volumes for purchase flexibility.
Also available as an e-Nautical Publication
In addition to paper format, each volume of ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions is available as an e-Nautical Publication (e-NP). e-NPs bring improved efficiency, accuracy and access to information bridge crews need through electronic NM updates and simple search functionality.
We provide regular ADMIRALTY Notices to Mariners (NMs) to help you ensure your ADMIRALTY publications are maintained and up-to-date with the latest safety critical information.
These weekly NMs can be downloaded for free from our website, or the paper bulletin can be bought from your ADMIRALTY Chart Agent.
