Amazing customer service

I used the service one year and forgot that it automatically renewed. I emailed to cancel my subscription bummed out that I had just bought another year on accident. Turns out RipCharts just expired my account and refunded my money without having to ask. The App was excellent as well for fishing assistance!

Don’t leave the dock without it

The mobile app is game changer and makes it simple for anyone to use at home or on the water. The built in navigation and ability to download charts and use outside of cell range is invaluable.

Go RipCharts Go!

I have subscribed to RipCharts for many years now. I love all the different map views and tools. I find it to be very easy to navigate and they keep adding more features for the same price. Highly recommended!
