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.

Makes boating stress free (almost)

The owner of the marina where my boat is docked recommended this app to me 3 years ago, and I have been using it ever since. My boating is exclusively around the coast and coastal waterways of New Jersey.

When I take trips to new places, I find this app indispensable. It has enabled me to choose marinas, restaurants and bars that are accessible by boat, moorings, but most importantly, it is insect repellant for marine police. I used to get stopped multiple times each year, but since becoming familiar with this app, I have been molested by the marine police no more.

Whoever made this app, thank you for all of the great meals and drinks, the filled up gas tanks when I would have had to call sea tow, and most of all, thank you for keeping the insects away!

Best App for Boaters

My friend told me about this app and said I had to check it out. SO happy I did!! I’ve had it for a few months now and I take it out every time I’m on the boat! It gives you all wake zones that are so confusing sometimes, tons of stuff that you can do out on the water, depth and even routing! Kind of reminds me of WAZE but for boats. 10/10 for sure!
