You can download the charts, tide & current tables, and weather forecast information as eBooks. The book layouts are arranged for double-sided printing. If you need a paper version, print it yourself or have a local print shop do it.
The Bras d'Or Lakes book, laser-printed in colour, may cost as little as $25. Or print only the pages you need. eReaders (Kindle, Kobo, etc.) will read the eBooks.

It takes less than 35 MB on a laptop, tablet, or flash drive. The latest edition is usually uploaded around the beginning of each month. The Website and App undergo frequent unannounced changes to enhance user experience. So, always grab the latest version! Important note!

App Option 1 — Self-extracting zip-file (Windows users only)

Depending on your browser, you may be able to run this directly to install it; otherwise you will be required to save the file and then run it directly from the web browser's download. Follow the instructions. This operation will create a directory 'CruiseCB' on your C-drive where the files are stored and provides a shortcut on your desktop: 'CruiseCB'.
NOTE: When using this option there is no need to delete an older version when updating—it simply replaces it.
