The Virginia and Maryland Cruising Guides are nautical Chart books to navigate the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, Potomac River, Chincoteague Bay, Tidewater Virginia and Maryland.
Our Cruising Guides contain the latest information on buoys, water depth, tidal currents, marinas, ramps, and channels.
We compile navigation information from the latest National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) sources.
The chart books are red-light readable and include a planning chart, tidal currents, course headings, towing services, and a marina index.
We use a special Wet Strength paper. This paper is fully functional even when wet.
Each chart book is enclosed in a heavy-duty vinyl sleeve to protect it from spray.
Personalized custom charts are available on wet strength paper, and in large print.
Family owned and operated since 1921, Williams & Heintz Map is a local manufacturer, with four generations of boating knowledge and experience.
