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.
- Today 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 Today 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!

Great buoy app

Really easy to use and read buoy app . Some buoys are wind and temp and some buoys are wave direction and period. Fast loading and easy to scroll all over the world map. Can save certain buoys to your favorites for quick info reading in a favorites list . My favorite buoy app so far

Easy access to info

I work on boats. Getting buoy report quickly and easily makes my job safer. I know what I’m heading into. Being able to see reports from across the ocean makes it possible to track weather systems. I use this a lot.

Very Handy

I drive boat for a living. I use this app to help me make routing decisions. It’s nice to be able to get current info on what the weather is doing right now. Takes a lot of the guess work out of it.
