Current Atlas Tables

Current Atlas Table

The perfect accompaniment to the Canadian Current Atlas

  • Would you like to know how to use the currents to your advantage?

  • Do you want to find those secret holes that the fish disappear to?

  • Are you tired of being the last one in the harbour and over nighting in the most exposed slip?

  • Do you like saving money on fuel?

  • Do you have a current book and no idea how to use it?

  • The Canadian Current Atlas is an extremely useful tool.  Like any tool, it's only useful if you know how to use it. Our companion book takes all of the guess work out of using the atlas. It is simple and straightforward, with no mathematical equations involved.

So Easy to Use!

Two years ago we purchased our first P&P after cruising in the PNW for 13 yrs and employing any number of cruising guides, tide & current tables, current atlases, and the like to get around. What took us so long? The quality, diversity and volume of info you pack into your publication is amazing. The presentation is excellent. P&P is a fixture in our pilothouse. Thank you.

Last summer, my husband and I took our Uniflight to explore the areas North of Desolation Sound. I was very worried about the passage through Hole in the Wall and Yaculta Rapids. My husband used Ports and Passes to plan our transit time but I still couldn't sleep the night before. It turns out that I had nothing to worry about. He followed your advice and the trip was fantastic. Thanks for your great book!
