Does anyone know what website I can get charts for the reef for a Lowrance depth/fishfinder?

I already went to Navionics.com and the chart for this area is suspended until 2012

None of the charts for Belize are very accurate even the most recent chips can be off by a few hundred yards and none of them show great detail.

You can buy Navionics chips for Belize through West Marine.

Simon, do you mean the Admiralty charts? Just curious, I wouldn't mind having a set for the wall of my den...

I believe Simon is referring to the chips you insert into a gps. Best guess why they have stopped selling the chips is they aren't very accurate and therefore more dangerous than helpful since large ships will rely on the bad info and get themselves into trouble.

You can get the charts that are in the cruising guide for Belize at http://www.windmillhillbooks.com/

For navigating the waters of Belize you need a combination of those charts, the cruising guide, the most recent GPS chip, good local knowledge and most importantly your eyes.

I don't know why the charts weren't available till 2012, but someone hooked me up with the chip so I got it. Thanks for all the input.
