Which paper chart do I need between Nanaimo and Campbell River?

I have chart books for the San Juans & Gulf Islands and Jervis Inlet/Desolation Sound. I also have a strip chart for the Sunshine Coast.

However, the east coast of Vancouver Island between Nanaimo and Campbell River is not covered in any of my chart books. Can anyone tell me which chart(s) I need to complete my coverage? Am I missing other areas that I'm unaware of?

I'll be making my first run north to Desolation Sound in August. Can't wait!!

Thanks for the help,
Mary

Kolive and Northern Spy - thank you so much for the links. I do much better with visual overviews than just reading a list of chart titles.

I'm thinking that these 4 will provide me coverage of the Vancouver Island coastline as well as some overlap as I get closer to DS:

3512 - Strait of Georgia - Central Portion
3513 - Strait of Georgia - Northern Portion
3538 - Desolation Sound and Sutil Channel
3539 - Discovery Passage

I'm up at work so don't have my chart books handy to do a thorough check. I'd like to order what I need so they're waiting for me to drool over when I get back to the boat next month.

Thanks again.
