Everyone Living in South FL Should Have This

If you boat, fish, do water sports or more KnowWake is a no brainer. That’s why I downloaded this need-to-have boaters app. However, after using it a couple times I’ve realized that everyone should have it because the captain of your vessel, or your day outing, may not. I recently visited some friends in Virginia and we went boating in an area I am completely unfamiliar with, but when they asked what bar we should head to for lunch, KnowWake had the answer. On another occasion, I got up early to go fishing only to find out that my local bishop had just gone out of business and KnowWake had an alternative at 4:30 AM; right when I needed it most. Not just that, but if you live in a place like South Florida you also have the option to drive to a great restaurant or hangout spot using KnowWake. Thanks to the team at KnowWake for always having my back when I need or want any fishing or water sport related suggestions.

Long time app user

I have been a know wake user for a couple years now and love the way the app works. Clean, easy to use platform. Used this app last week to locate diving/snorkel spots off South Florida’s eastern coast, location pins and information was very accurate. Perfect app for boaters to share and receive information 👍🏼

Definitely the boating app you need!

Super helpful to finding all the little areas I need to know about on the water. Used it on the intercostal waterways and it had every spot I need! Great app, very useful!
