    • Free



DECKEE is the free boating assistant that keeps you safe and informed on the water. Get on-water location sharing, an automated logbook, marine weather, heatmap guidance, safety alerts and more, so you can explore the waterways with confidence!

• On-water location sharing – DECKEE automatically detects when you are on the water, and will magically do things you often forget to do, like letting your Safety Contacts know where you are, and automatically logging your boating activities.

• See who’s on the water – Spot other DECKEE members on waterways around the world and look out for each other. Now everyone can be visible on the water, not just the vessels with AIS equipment.

• Risk forecast for your watercraft – Have you ever tried to work out what the weather forecast means for your boat? It’s not easy! The DECKEE risk forecast takes into account a variety of weather data factors and combines it with your boat length to assess the risk and make your decision to go boating easier.

• Automated logbook – DECKEE automatically logs your activity on the water for you so you never forget. In your logbook you can see your activity stats, learn from your past trips, improve your decision-making, and reflect on your favourite experiences.

• Local knowledge heatmaps – DECKEE Heatmaps help you see what pathways and routes other boaters follow, so you feel confident to discover new places, find those quiet spots to relax, and other insights to plan a fun day on the water.

• Chart info, POIs and zones – Enhance your situational awareness with interactive navigation aids, points of interest, speed zones and safety alerts. We are regularly adding more information and updates to DECKEE maps to improve your experience.

• Worldwide vessel tracking – Explore global AIS vessel positions for free in the DECKEE app. When combined with DECKEE Signal location sharing, you can see the full picture of what is happening out on the water!

Whether you’re a beginner boater or an experienced navigator, DECKEE is your must-have assistant to plan and prepare a successful day on the water.

Was Good But Nagging PopUps Ruined It - Update Fixed.

Was a great app but the recent update to include detecting if you are on the water and the app not turned on is great function, but the downside is that I am constantly bombarded every several minutes to set my background location on. My privacy is important and letting apps track and monitor location in the background is not a good thing - lets remember google analytics. I chose to allow location only when using the app but the continual bombarding of pop up’s telling me to set my background location to always is annoying and that’s being polite. Your app went from useful to nagging in one update. Please take this onboard and change the software to not force the background location and stop nagging. I understand the purpose of the location to detect if I’m on the water but I don’t want it, don’t want the popups and nagging.

Update on July 2023.
That little annoying bug has been fixed. Thanks to the Devs for doing that so quickly.

Hey Ozwands, we're sorry about this bug that was constantly prompting you. It only affected a small number of users and has since been fixed - you should not experience this anymore. Thanks!

I have such high praise for this app! It is very well put together with a good design and great info. As far as I can see, the weather data matches BOM to a tee, which I find very important. Well done!
One thing I rely on greatly is ‘Feels like,’ as 24°C can sometimes feel like, for example, 17°C and other times like 29°C. The app shows the current ‘Feels like’ temperature alongside the current actual temperature, which is great. I would love to see the ‘Feels like’ temperature on the same chart as the actual Temperature throughout the day. That way, we could pan the chart left and right to see whether the morning, afternoon and evening are going to be on the cooler or warmer side of the actual temperature.
Overall, you’ve created a wonderful. Very impressed ☺️

Just what I was looking for…

New to boating and looks like I’ve hit gold. Allows me to plan my day out on the water- the weather, tide and my course. Also let’s me explore new adventures from the comfort of my lounge room.

Only thing that might be missing is the sunrise/sunset time and the ability to plot a course in advance (though that could take the fun out of things!)

Well done team. Loving it.

Thanks so much for this feedback! There are many more improvements in the pipeline to our weather information, and also the plotting capabilities in Deckee. Stay tuned!
