Wales Cruising Guide

Books    Charts

Cruising Wales means getting away from the crowds to an area where stunning scenery and historic castles are the norm.  Visit the North Wales Coast where you will find the walled town of Conwy, the beautiful Menai Strait and Holyhead on the isle of Anglesey, or try Cardigan Bay for an abundance of marine life as well as interesting ports and harbours such as Pwllheli and Aberystwyth.

The vast natural harbour of Milford Haven provides the gateway to the Bristol Channel, known for its vast tidal range and where you will find Swansea and Cardiff when you find yourself in need of some city life.

Wales Charts

There are several useful chart packs and folios covering Wales produced by both the Admiralty and Imray offering significant savings on the purchase of individual charts.  Go to the Port Pages for relevant charts covering each port or harbour as well as the approaches to each destination.
