The Essential Toolbox for the Canal Mariner!

Canal Guide is a navigational and touring tool for use by mariners actively navigating or planning a trip on New York's canal system. The Champlain Canal is being used as a pilot before expanding the service to other waterways. The app features the most accurate data available with regards to buoys, beacons, and the preferred navigation channel (based on the most recent bathymetric soundings and imagery). It also features a "navigation mode" which allows mariners to actively follow their proximities to canal features and the deepest water. Shore amenities are highlighted throughout the route, placing emphasis on points where boaters can dock and reach shore.

Excellent resource!

Used this app on our first trip through the Champlain Canal - lots of great info that was easily accessible via app! Detailed lock info, including links to lock master phones, shoreline activities/services, transient boater info, points of interest, local history... Looking forward to the complete NY Canal app!

It's about time! This is just the info mariners need. How long until we get the app for the entire canal system?

Great on the iPad. Blows away other comparable apps. Looking forward to increased coverage.
