Argo™ is a free boating app that allows you to find the best route to local hot spots, customize your chart, plan and track your trips, connect with others while out on the water, and share your experiences. Think of it as having a first mate and the local boating community right in your pocket.
We’re a boating family hailing from the Chesapeake Bay and we want to take the frustration out of boating so you can sit back and just enjoy the ride. Whether you are a new or seasoned boater, you will find it fun and easy to navigate with Argo. Check out our favorite features below:
Custom Charts with Autorouting
Enter your boat’s draft and Argo will create a custom route just for you. The route changes color based on how close the bottom is to your boat to make navigation easier and safer.
Real-Time Updates on Hazards, Map Issues, Police, Marine Life, Weather and More
Navigate safely through new waters. Use the Argo community to stay up to date on any new hazards, map issues or points of interest. View reports others have created and add your own.
Find Local Beaches, Restaurants, Marinas and more
Plan your trip before you get out on the water. Search for places and read a brief description, view pictures and see reviews that other boaters have left. Then bookmark your favorite places and voyages to your Captain’s Log for next time you’re on the water.
Share Your Location with Friends
Going for a spontaneous weekend trip and want to let your friends know where you are? No need to coordinate over the phone, they can just check your location and route to you. This feature is also perfect if you keep family members back home updated on your whereabouts.
Social Boating Community
Join our community to share your boating experiences through reports, reviews, social posts and more. See nearby boaters on the water and connect via messages.
Who’s Argo for?
Our community is for everyone who loves boats and being on the water. It doesn’t matter if you have a motorboat, sailboat, yacht, or even a kayak. Welcome to our family.
Please keep in mind:
Argo is currently still in its beginning stages, so we need your help! Most of our boaters are located in the Chesapeake Bay, so most of our report pins and local knowledge is there as well. Are you a boater from somewhere else in the US? Or maybe you’re even traversing the Great Loop? Help us expand our community of boaters and sailors from coast to coast. Thanks! We’re glad to have you on board.

App in the works
Even in its fledgling state, Argo Navigation shows great potential. The founder treats it like his baby and it shows.
Using the app today for a cruise from Gwynn’s Island to Reedeville and possibly Tangier Island.
We use it as a secondary gps but four nding it to be the first screen we look at. Extremely user friendly.
Keep up the good work Jeff!

Thanks for the nice review and support!
Best Navigation app!!
I’ve downloaded multiple apps that I payed for the charts and annual subscriptions.
Argo is like Waze on the water!! No need to input waypoints and this app takes you in the safest route. This is the only app I use now and I’m in the Chesapeake Bay.
The charts are very nice just as good if not better than my furuno charts! “From 2011” The social feature is really nice to. The depths are accurate, the speed is on point, reporting logs, trees, debris in the water is quite handy too. Have loved using it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
