Wake Watch is the Boater's Resource for information on no wake zones, boating speed limits and bridges. We have no wake zone and boating speed limit maps for FL, NC & CT. We have bridge heights and opening schedules for FL, GA, SC, NC, VA & CT. The app uses your GPS location to track your boat on the map to keep you aware of what bridges and no wake zones are coming up on your route.
This is a must have for recreational boaters in Florida and snowbirds cruising south for the winter down the ICW. Boating in FL can be frustrating due to no wake zones and limited bridge openings. Limited bridge openings could mean waits of up to an hour or more. This tool will help you to stay informed and plan accordingly.
The app covers all of the waterways in Florida, including the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), bays, inlets and canals. Also covers key areas such as the Okeechobee Waterway, New River, and more. Includes information from a variety of sources, including NOAA charts, state and federal Manatee Protection Zones, Boating Safety Zones and more. It covers the ICW all the way up to Chesapeake Bay, and all coastal waters and rivers up through VA.
Tide station information was also added. For each tide station, the times for high and low tides each day are shown. Tidal heights are included as well.
NOAA Coastal Waters Forecasts are now included. These include wave height forecasts up to five days out.
In version 2.60, we've added remote updating for bridge schedules. When the app is started, it automatically checks for updated data. In the past, a new version had to be installed when data was updated. In this version the bridge data has been updated due to schedules and a few data mistakes.
Ratings and Reviews
I received a ticket for $90 because the police informed me the speed zone from November 15 -April is slow zone idle for manatees. I followed the green 30mph FROM the app. This app is out of date and provides inaccurate information that consequently cost me a speeding ticket. When I reached out to developers they didn’t offer to compensate me for my ticket.
The app is really helpful. Now I know all of the no wake zones and what the signs actually say. It's tough to read the fine print in no wake signs when you're speeding by.
Bridge opening schedules are super useful too. Very handy going up and down the icw.
Very Low Level of Detail
I bought this because it advertises that it shows heights of bridges over inlets, canals, and bayous... turns out it really just covers major bridges on major thorough-ways which likely have the clearance posted anyway. Disappointing $2 gamble.
