Argo™ helps you find and route to new destinations within the U.S. and Canada, share local knowledge, and connect with other boaters. Think of Argo as having a first mate and the local boating community right in your pocket.

As a boating family hailing from the Chesapeake Bay, we felt there needed to be a better way for boaters to connect and share information with each other. With Argo, we hope to build an active community you can turn to for navigation advice, local knowledge, destination reviews, and more. Download and join us in building this resource.

Here’s a quick overview of our favorite features:

Autorouting and Manual Routing
Enter your boat’s draft and Argo will create a color-coded route customized for your boat. You can also manually plot routes.

Real-Time Reports on Hazards, Map Issues, Local Advice and More
Navigate safely through new waters by checking in on the report pins around you. See what hazards, map issues, etc. other boaters have marked.

Find Restaurants, Marinas, Anchorages and More
Looking to go somewhere? Use Argo to search for places both near and far. Check out pictures and reviews that other boaters have left. If you’re not out on the water, you can also save places to your Captain’s Log for later.

Share Your Location with Friends
Wondering who else is on the water? If your friends have Argo open, they’ll be shown on your Argo chart. This feature is also perfect keeping family members back home updated on your whereabouts.

Join Our Community Today
Share your favorite voyages on your feed. Leave reviews on your favorite places. Drop a local knowledge pin to help your fellow boater. We hope you’ll join us.

Please keep in mind:
Argo is still pretty new so we need your help...Most of our boaters are located in the Chesapeake Bay, so most of our reports and reviews are there as well. Help us by adding report pins and reviews in your area. If you have any ideas or suggestions send us a message.

Great Functionality and It’s Free!

I was looking at chart plotters for my boat so I could explore new areas of the Delaware river but they’re all more than I wanted to spend. On a whim, I searched the App Store to see if there was anything out there that I could use ( figured I wouldn’t often be somewhere that was out of cell range) and I found Argo. And what a find it was!

I love that there are multiple map/chart types to chose from. I really enjoy floating the river at night - super peaceful! The chart plotting options allow me to do that worry free!

I also like that I can search for destination types instead of specific names. This came in handy a few weeks back when I wanted to fill up with gas so I could extend my cruise. I searched for marinas and found one that was close to me ... refueled and has many more hours of fun on the water.

There are so many other features in the app as well. Captains log - has it. Reviews of destinations - has it. Chat with other Argo users - has it.

Over the past year there has been so much added to the app. It’s really a great tool to have on the water!

Great app

This app is very cool & useful if you set the view as NOAA RNC. Much more user-friendly and easy to configure than the others I have tried. When you email the developer/ owner he responds quickly and is open to suggestions. You should get this app especially if you don’t have a yacht wih GPS & chartplotters. I really like that you setup your boat profile including average speed. Then when you plot a course it calculates with really good accuracy the time it takes to arrive. Great app.

Excellent utility

Just came back from a fishing trip to Harkers Island, NC. Used Argo to navigate the inshore waters around the Island and Cape Lookout. I'll have to say, the app was indispensible. Very narrow paths thru very shallow waters. I'm not interested in the social aspect of the app, but as a utility, it does an excellent job. I've never boated in that area before, but with the information provided and the courses mapped out by Argo, I was able to navigate the waters with relatively few problems. I will definitely be using Argo on future trips. Cudos, mates!
