United States Coast Pilot®
CoastPilot

The United States Coast Pilot® consists of a series of nautical books that cover a variety of information important to navigators of coastal and intracoastal waters and the Great Lakes. Issued in nine volumes, they contain supplemental information that is difficult to portray on a nautical chart.

Topics in the Coast Pilot include channel descriptions, anchorages, bridge and cable clearances, currents, tide and water levels, prominent features, pilotage, towage, weather, ice conditions, wharf descriptions, dangers, routes, traffic separation schemes, small-craft facilities, and Federal regulations applicable to navigation.

U.S. Coast Pilot now offers completely updated publications every week.

To increase efficiency and timeliness, Coast Pilot updates will only be posted on this website,
and no longer be included in the Coast Guard Local Notice to Mariners.

Due to a technical glitch, updates on 16-FEB-14 listed for CP4, CP7 and CP9 were never posted. The books themselves were updated and corrected appropriately. The weekly record of updates in the back of each book is correct. The 16-FEB-14 is now posted.
