Captain's reviews of the Cruising Guide to New Caledonia

superyacht twizzle review

"I can't praise you highly enough for the absolutely marvelous job you have done with the cruising guide. It has taken some extraordinary effort. Can't help thinking about how ALL yachts visiting New Caledonia can be convinced that your guide is an absolute MUST. If they don't have it they don't know how much they will miss out."

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.

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.

"Your cruising guide of New Caledonia has been a great help for us to find the most beautiful anchorages. Your beautiful photos, aerial and 360? views and all the knowledge, all interactive make this cruising guide unique. I think it's the world's best cruising guide and I recommend it to everybody who is cruising New Caledonia.

" 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 New Caledonia before you arrive. I highly recommend it to any cruiser or professional crew. Well done."

MY Suri

"When I started using the Cruising Guide to New Caledonia more than 2 years ago I was immediately enthusiastic about it.

This is a tool so sophisticated and so loaded with features, that I still discover new ones. The easy and quick jump to an area of interest, the interaction there, the quality of aerial and other images, the information given, the chart overlays, the countless routes based on waypoints….

You name it,  this is without any doubt a cruising guide unparalleled on the market.."

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

Before we go again I will be in touch to see about updates to the guides. Thanks for the enormous effort you have put into these guides - it shows."
