Storm headed your way? Get the latest NOAA Buoy & Ship conditions! Includes graphs of past data, and often Includes wave height, wind speed, air/water temps, & more!

This is the no-nonsense app to get all the buoy information you need without the clutter of tide or weather forecasts.

You can quickly find current buoy conditions with our intuitive map, and past buoy data with our interactive graphs.

Data is available from over 1000 buoys and over 200 ships worldwide. Including both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans off of the United States and Canada, the Great Lakes, the Caribbean, and the waters around Ireland and Great Britain.

With NOAA Buoy Reports, you get:

With our intuitive map interface, just tap on any buoy to get its latest reported conditions. A second tap will give you a complete summary of current conditions, or a graph of wind, wave, temperature, or pressure information so you can not only see what it's doing now, but what it was doing this morning, or even last week.

You can also add "Favorites" to quickly see what you are important to you with just a glance, and even monitor your favorites with the included Widgets.

This app DOES NOT provide tide data, or maritime or other weather forecasts. There are dedicated apps for these from other publishers that do an excellent job. This app specializes exclusively on buoy and ship observation data.

Please note that not all buoys have all types of data available, and buoys do experience intermittent outages - a life at sea can be harsh!

Additionally, please note that some buoys may be seasonal, and may be physically removed from the water during winter months,, such as in the Great Lakes.

Raw source data compliments of NOAA, National Data Buoy Center (NDBC), and the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

Outstanding Service

I used this app everyday 27months when I worked in cleaning up the deep water horizon oil spill . I was on Dauphin Island for my complete service. This App Gave me the help i needed to insure the safety of the day. Out in the water by vessel or on Land. In conjunction with Noaa Radar Live and Cost Gaurds updates my day was planned. THE BUOY REPORTS were accurate and let us know when the waters would be choppy on the water .. Thank You ,Lisa

Love this app. great for fishing and any other boating weather awareness requirements. I used to use these to predict where hurricanes would track. I’m no meteorologist, but it’s a fun challenge.

Long ago when I was in aviation, I used them to see what the water temperature was. It helped us predict inevitable fog on Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Block Island.

Always file a float plan!

Useful and easy

Very easy app to use. Awesome that you can favorite for east future look up. I wish you could apply filters so if, for example, you wanted to know the wind you could filter off all those that don’t record wind. Or turn off ships. Other the having to find what you’re looking for the app is extremely straight forward and useful.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! An "Interactive Map Legend" has been included in the latest release that allows you to filter out buoys/ships based on various criteria.
