New Zealand Marine Charts Online

Welcome to NZ Charts.

Here you can view New Zealand marine charts online - for free!

Important Notice:

We are in the process of a long overdue re-development of this site. The changes will include the following initial functionality:

  • Includes charts for all of New Zealand
    This may initially not include the very high resolution charts - eg the in-harbour or entrances charts - but we will make it possible to view these in the coming weeks.
  • Works on all devices (Windows PC's, Apple Macs, Linux and mobile devices like iPads, Android tablets, and mobile phones eg Android phones and Apple iPhones).

We also plan on adding functionality you might find in commercial wayfinding apps like:

  • Marking Spots
  • Marking Trips (multiple waypoints)
  • Adding your own comments and photos to these
  • Is there anything else you would like to see??

We are aiming to broaden the scope of this site to appeal to many activities, not just ocean-based activities - to that end you will be able to toggle between seeing maps or marine charts.

If you have any preferences, ideas or comments about this and what you would like to be able to do we would love to hear from you. Likewise we are keen to hear from people to find out what you use this site for - that way we can customise it to suit your needs. Feel free to contact us.
