The Gulf of Mexico map is an extremely useful reference. Zoom in to any coastal location to find an overlay of nautical chart data providing reference depths at mean low water. This information is for casual reference only. It should not be used for small boat navigation, especially where safety at sea is a concern.
To obtain official NOAA Nautical Charts for navigation, go directly to this well-known reseller, Nautical Charts Online, ask for NOAA Charts - Gulf Coast.
Also note that the U.S. Coast Guard routinely updates published NOAA charts via regular broadcasts and published, downloadable PDFs as official "Notices to Mariners". Visit the USCG Navigation Center, find your specific district, then hunt for any local, recent Notices to Mariners. The USCG "Notices to Mariners" do not extend to the coastal areas of Mexico and Cuba. For Mexico Notices to Mariners, published monthly regarding any developments that pose a threat to coastal navigation. These "Notices" are published by the General Office of Oceanography, Hydrography and Meteorology ( DIGAOHM ) of Mexico's Navy.
