It is a 'must have '

Complete, user friendly

I have been using the Rocket nautical guides for New Caledonia and Vanuatu for several years and they are the most complete, user friendly cruising guides I have ever seen. I have found them to be very accurate and there is more good information than I have found in any other cruising guides.

I highly recommend it

" I have sailed in every ocean of the world and have never come across a guide so interactive and user friendly. The images are top quality and you feel as you have already been to Vanuatu before you arrive. I highly recommend it to any cruiser or professional crew. Well done."

Like having your own tour guide aboard!

"The rocket guides are like no other cruising guide we have seen. The amount of information that is contained in these guides is truly remarkable. Having the Rocket Guides aboard when you cruise New Caledonia or Vanuatu will ensure that you get the most of the experience. It is like having your own personal tour guide aboard your boat!
?We recommend the Rocket Guides to all the participants of our Go East and Go West Downunder Cruiser's rallies.?"

I genuinely rely on the Rocket Guides

I genuinely rely on the Rocket Guides. I've never seen any other cruising guide that even comes close to the amount and quality of information or ease of use.

"We have used the Rocket cruising guide to Vanuatu for the past month and it is priceless. We took Mastika into Crab Bay on Malakula in the evening. We never would have attempted it without your guide. A yacht came in behind us and when he came over he said, 'I can't believe you could get a vessel this size in here.'"

Bamboo Free


"Bamboo Free is a 20 metre maxi charter catamaran based in New Caledonia but often sailing to Vanuatu. We use the Cruising Guide to Vanuatu regularly. We can't rely on the accuracy of the charts in the Banks islands and being able to cross-check with the accurate GPS points on the Cruising Guide to Vanuatu has been a precious aid for us in Vanuatu."

The world's best

"Your cruising guide of Vanuatu has been a great help for us to find the most beautiful anchorages. I think it's the world's best cruising guide and I recommend it to everybody who is cruising Vanuatu."

You know exactly what to expect

Captain B Review

"The Rocket cruising guides for New Caledonia and Vanuatu are unlike any other guides I have used. They are very quick & easy to navigate around. They are full of all the usual information that a guide has but with added bonuses of Aerial pictures of the anchorages, Underwater shots of the marine life at that location, 360 degree images of the area that you are visiting and lists of "things to do" when you get there- you know exactly what to expect when you arrive safely at your destination. I highly recommend these guides."

"The whole trip was tremendous - New Caledonia, Vanuatu and the sailing exceeded expectations. Both the Vanuatu and New Caledonia guides were fantastic and we could not imagine cruising these areas without them. "

Worth Every Cent!

The Cruising Guides to New Caledonia and Vanuatu have in depth information displayed in an easy to use and intuitive manner. The electronic format allows the user to "drill down" from an overall view to more and more information, unlike paper guides this allows the user to stay in touch with where they are relative to the big picture. If you're cruising Vanuatu and New Caledonia these Cruising Guides are a must have. We use and highly recommend them to captains in our Island Cruising Regattas. They are worth every cent!

A Must Have

Captain Jams

"Having used the Rocket Guides for both Vanuatu and New Caledonia this season we consider the Rocket Guides a "must have" for all skippers cruising these waters. The route and anchorage data is extremely accurate and the information re local services, walks and snorkelling is invaluable."

Highly Recommended

Captain Squander Review

"With two sailing seasons in New Caledonia and Vanuatu behind us we have found the Rocket Cruising Guides an invaluable, essential resource for information on cruising these fantastic islands. With stunning visual presentations and an instant, intuitive interface, we have been able to quickly find essential navigation information and comprehensive coverage of everything we needed to know to explore these waters. Highly Recommended!"

Well Worth the Investment


"We would not have cleared into Port Resolution without your guide. The charts don't have anything like the detail and information you give and we would not have attempted it. Your guide was well worth the investment."
