Welcome to Frugal Navigator!
We are Official Agents of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Our charts are printed "On Demand" with all the latest updates and corrections. When you order, we print.
For those of us plying coastal waters in smaller craft, handling a traditional NOAA Chart can be inconvenient at best and dangerous at worst. Have you ever opened and tried to refold a full-sized nautical chart while orienting yourself in wind, wave and current?
You can cut up your NOAA Charts, this is true, but then you lose the big picture and continuity that you may need to follow a course.
We've solved this problem at Frugal Navigator by splitting these charts in half, printing on both sides and formatting them to fit the deck of your kayak. Our charts are printed on heavy coated paper with waterproof ink, folded in a convenient accordion format and shipped in a clear waterproof storage case. If you don't have one already, our Small Craft Charts are designed to fit a large SealLine Map Case.
We are excited for you to try one of our Small Craft Charts on your next paddling trip.
