Aqua Map uses only official Nautical charts with depth contours, buoys, lights, etc. to enjoy the best boating experience. You can download the maps at home within your device and use them on the boat offline (no more Internet connection required). Our charts are derived in part from material obtained from: NOAA, CHS, BA, BSH, IIM, CNIG, AHS, NLHO, Explorer, etc.
Available areas: US, Canada, Bahamas, Caribbean, Bermuda, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, UK, Ireland, France Med, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Croatia, Estonia, Malta, Australia, New Zealand, Seychelles, Maldives, Emirates, South Africa.

Plan your trip, insert and edit waypoints. Navigate your route and your track (NEW) to monitor distance, time (ETA) and direction toward your next waypoint or your final destination.

This function will check in realtime your GPS position against your anchor position previously defined. An acoustic and visual alarm will run as soon as your GPS position is out of the defined range.

You can calculate the prediction for more than 6800 stations in the US & Canada. See the T&C trend on the map and simulate any future date.

The best of the best

I love Aqua Maps. I can’t say that enough. I have been accused of getting a kick back from Aqua Maps because I tell everyone how good it is. I have personally turned over 20 people on to it. I started out in Lake Michigan over a year ago and wanted to use ActiveCaptain for our up coming trip. We had been using it for years and I have a lot of reviews on it of our old cruising grounds but then all the issues came up with Garmin. Three days before we left to head down Lake Michigan I found Aqua Maps. This is one great chart plotter. We use it for all our route planning and as a second chart plotter in the cockpit. The charts are spot on and have not let us down in over 4 thousand miles of ICW to Bahamas cruising. Works great and at a very reasonable cost. We still let everyone know about it. Would not be without it.

Purchased but couldn’t use

At the recommendation of a fellow cruiser, I purchased an annual subscription for the Bahamas as a trial. I was able to use it for a short period of time and then kept getting a message that the tutorial period was over. My only thought was that I needed an internet connection to validate my subscription. If that is the case, this app is useless because while cruising, internet access is not reality. Also because I was in the Bahamas, sorting out the problem was not possible. Now back in the US, I want to know what went wrong before purchasing US charts.

Developer Response ,


we are sorry if you are having troubles with our App and I can confirm you do not need any Internet connection to use our App. The problem you are having is quite strange, also because we do not have any "trial period" for the Bahamas annual subscription. So maybe something went wrong with the purchase, so I suggest to contact us at our email "" (or from inside the App, in the Setting page tap on the email icon) and we will solve your issue.

Best Regards

Game changer

The absolute best app that I’ve found so far for my boating needs. Having used this app up and down the eastern coast and Bahamas I can highly recommend. Aquamap master with a NEMA gateway such as Vesper AIS makes critical information available from anyplace on the vessel.
Information equals safety and having that at a glance, for me, is a sound investment in safety. Active captain data overlaid on charts makes using this app a must have for planning and on tbr fly changes when finding dockage or anchorages.

To top it off support has been wonderful with any questions I’ve had
