ADMIRALTY Mariners' Routeing Guides

Routeing information for the world’s busiest and most complex shipping routes

ADMIRALTY Mariners' Routeing Guides

​​​​​​​​​​​​Essential routeing information to help bridge crews safely navigate through some of the world’s busiest and most complex shipping routes.

Each Mariners' Routeing Guide includes:

  • ​​​Verified information highlighting dangers or warnings to navigation, limited depths and dense traffic areas. This additional information, when used alongside official navigational charts, can help to increase situational awareness and reduce the risk of damage caused by collisions and groundings.

  • Clear guidance on traffic separation schemes and routeing measures that have been adopted by the IMO and national authorities.

  • Weekly updates and new editions to help maintain high levels of accuracy and safety. Some routeing guides also include ADMIRALTY QR codes for quick access to a list of all Notices to Mariners (NMs) that affect each chart.



We provide regular ADMIRALTY Notices to Mariners (NMs) to help you ensure your ADMIRALTY charts are maintained and up-to-date with the latest safety critical information. These weekly NMs can be downloaded for free from our website, or the paper bulletin can be bought from your ADMIRALTY Chart Agent.
