Port Approach Guides

Admiralty Port Approach Guides are single, port-scale charts that contain a wide range of planning information for some of the world's busiest approaches. Taken from existing Admiralty charts and publications, this information can help to simplify a number of passage planning tasks and support Master Pilot Exchange (MPX).

Key features of Port Approach Guides include:

  • Planning information for individual ports including principal lights and landmarks, pilotage and port specific warnings. Displayed on one chart, this information can help users to simplify the planning of port entry and exit.
  • International Code of Signals (ICS) flags and QR codes to help bridge crews quickly identify warnings and current notices for specific ports, increasing situational awareness and supporting safe navigation.
