Live scientific readings from ocean buoys around the world. Data is provided by the National Data Buoy Center of NOAA and other public scientific organizations. Most buoys report water temperature and swell height, but some have more information available than others. Automatically select the closest buoy, choose one from the map, or choose from the list. Build a list of favorites for quick access to key buoys. With your device's location function turned on, bearing and distance to the buoy is calculated and displayed. This app is lightweight, easy-to-use, and requires virtually no data usage.

Currently, buoys are included from the following locations:

US Pacific: Washington to California
US Atlantic: Main to Florida
US Virgin Islands
Puerto Rico
US/Canada Great Lakes
Gulf of Mexico
United Kingdom

Real information, what a concept!

Unlike other similar apps for wind conditions this one actually appears to use real and recent observations as the source of information it provides. I know this from directly comparing what is happening to what the app says. I cannot find another app that does this. Instead, they all seem to use some algorithms based on old information from locations unknown to provide their users with information; wrong information at least 75% of the time.

Fantastic app

Such a handy app to have if you’re planning on going to the beach. Easy to find nearby water temperatures so you can have an accurate idea before dipping in. 10/10 would recommend! 🙌🏻 also, the developer has been pretty open to suggestions and has had great communication which is refreshing. Download this app!

Makes it easy to prepare for trip

It makes it easy to see conditions before leaving. It makes it clear what time tide comes in and water temperature East app ever! I always have this app tell me the temp and tide values so I know what time to plan for the beach or a surf. Love this app.
