Get NOAA Buoy and Ship conditions quickly, both current and past. Depending on the buoy's sensors, you can get air temp, water temp, wind speed, wave height, and more!

This is the no-nonsense app to get you all the buoy information you need without the clutter of tide or weather forecasts.

You can quickly find current buoy conditions with our intuitive map and past buoy data with our interactive graphs.

Data is available from over 800 buoys and over 200 ships worldwide. Including both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans off of the United States and Canada, the Great Lakes, the Caribbean, and the waters around Ireland and Great Britain.

With NOAA Buoy Reports, you get:
- Intuitive map interface
- Quick-view Favorites
- Full buoy current conditions (always free)
- Ship observations (free preview)
- Past buoy data (up to 45 days ago with Professional upgrade)
- Interactive graphs
- Units in Metric or English
- Readings in local time
- Share data via Facebook, Twitter, Email, iMessage, etc.
- Widget to monitor your favorites

With our intuitive map interface, just tap on any buoy to get its latest reported conditions. A second tap will give you a complete summary of current conditions, or a graph of wind, wave, temperature, or pressure information so you can not only see what it's doing now, but what it was doing this morning, or even last week.

You can also add "Favorites" to quickly see what you are important to you with just a glance, and even monitor your favorites with the included Widget.

This app DOES NOT provide tide data, or maritime or other weather forecasts. There are dedicated apps for these from other publishers that do an excellent job. This app specializes exclusively on buoy and ship observation data.

Please note that not all buoys have all types of data available, and buoy's do experience intermittent outages - a life at sea can be harsh!

Raw source data compliments of NOAA and National Data Buoy Center (NDBC).

Outstanding Service

I used this app everyday 27months when I worked in cleaning up the deep water horizon oil spill . I was on Dauphin Island for my complete service. This App Gave me the help i needed to insure the safety of the day. Out in the water by vessel or on Land. In conjunction with Noaa Radar Live and Cost Gaurds updates my day was planned. THE BUOY REPORTS were accurate and let us know when the waters would be choppy on the water .. Thank You ,Lisa
