With depth information and the outlines of hidden sandbars, nautical charts reveal safe passage to sailors. To the casual viewer, they evoke seaside memories and dreams of open water. Provide us with your favorite U.S. town or landmark that is located on the coastline of the Atlantic or Pacific (including Alaska and Hawaii) or the Great Lakes, and artisans in New England will create a cork-backed, rustic tumbled marble coaster set that reproduces a local chart.


If you'd like coasters featuring an inland waterway, such as a lake or river, please see ourNational Geographic "My Town" TOPO! Map Coasters.


Please note: To avoid errors and delays with your order, you must provide the name of a town or landmark that is located along a coastal waterway. Personalized items cannot be returned unless damaged or defective. Please check your order carefully; once placed, your order for this item cannot be canceled. Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. Allow 3-4 weeks for delivery to the continental U.S. and 4-6 weeks for delivery to Alaska and Hawaii.

What is a nautical chart? Nautical charts are graphic displays of an ocean coastal area. They show depths of water, features of the seabed, details of the coastline, navigational hazards, and approaches to land. Scale can vary greatly.


Can I order a nautical chart of any body of water? Nautical charts are created for ocean coastal areas, but we do have charts for many larger rivers and lakes too. We will suggest other options if we don’t have a chart that fits your request.


Why do you need me to specify the nearest town? The nearest town can guide us to your specific waterway if we have multiple options or the waterway name is the same in a few states. For example:

  • The Pacific Ocean and Lake Michigan are too large to capture on one nautical chart. By specifying La Jolla, CA, or Chicago, IL, for example, we can create a chart focusing on where those bodies of water meet those cities.
  • If you request “Cape Cod Bay,” we can picture whole bay (as shown in the images above) or we can zoom in on the coastal town of Wellfleet, MA, for example.

Why is my street not pictured/labeled on the chart? Nautical charts usually do not show street-level details. In some highly populated areas or ports, streets will be illustrated but not labeled. If you are looking for more street details, our National Geographic “My Town” TOPO! Map Coasters or National Geographic “My Town” TOPO! Map Clock are better options.


Our rustic tiles are carved from large marble blocks, ensuring that no two stones will ever be exactly alike. Then the pieces are tumbled to give them character that can be seen on every surface, edge, and corner. The result is a one-of-a-kind keepsake with more personality that would be possible from a piece of manufactured ceramic. Please see additional images for an example of a tumbled marble tile.

    wish I could've had the map centered on the coastal feature I wanted to highlight. the ordering routine requires a zip code and name of nearest town; in Alaska, there are hundreds of miles of coastline without a nearby town. the result was the not-so-nearby town was featured, while the bay and glacier I wanted as the focal point was barely captured.

        Finished product is exactly what I had envisioned. I was a little leary w/ some of the other reviews stating the area they were requesting was not really what was depicted on the set. This is positioned EXACTLY as I had envisioned when looking at a chart for my location. Overall quality seems very good. Just received, so not sure about durability of image on tile. We will see. Also received relatively quick, only two weeks after placing order. Would reccomend to anyone with love of coast/water/beach/boating. Would make great gift too.

          Wonderful coaster set, I have been collecting sets for years and these are by far the best set I have purchased. Made a wonderful gift for my father who is a sailor and he absolutely loves them. The downside was I spent many hours researching nautical charts to ensure I captured a unique coastline with nice detailing wrt the charted waters. Well I found it, and it also happens to be one of my fathers favorite ports along the eastern seaboard, I even matched exactly the size of the map in comparison to the example on the website, the charts were of the same scaling but alas when the coasters showed up the area was considerably smaller than expected, cutting out not only the port but also the most detailed part of the waterway. The way they ask for Zip Code, nearest town and waterway really leaves it up to their interpretation I guess and left me trying to be really exact, I figured they would know what they are doing! Guess not....if only I could have uploaded a picture of what I had in mind.

              Liked these coasters so much that, after receiving them as a gift, we ordered another set! Only one drawback -- after a year or more of use, the surface began to be abraded by cups and glasses.

                    This was a gift to my Dad, a mariner in his 70s. He loves these custom coasters! The waterways on them are the exactly what I requested. The quality is excellent, and they are a great conversation piece. He isn't one to say much, but he said a lot about these coasters. Very happy with this product!
