Explore with ease. See where NOT to go in red based on your boat's draft and tidal conditions, view community shared locations, check the weather and more.

Ever have a stressful day navigating on the water? Wanted to know more about the conditions you are about to head into? Are you looking for exciting places to explore, the best place to refuel, or just trying to meet up with a friend?

Wavve Boating takes a new spin on traditional boating navigation by bringing detailed nautical charts, tide predictions, weather forecasts, and more in one easy-to-use tool. Join a fast-growing community of boaters building a network of marine knowledge that everyone can enjoy.

With Wavve Boating you get:

- Simple and Seamless Marine GPS Navigation -

Put away overcrowded and complex charts and apps. Wavve Boating's GPS focuses on important and relevant information so that navigating is as easy as staying in the blue and avoiding the red.

- Custom Nautical Charts -
View and change Wavve Boating's nautical charts based on your unique boating needs and preferences. Set your draft and Wavve Boating redraws the nautical charts to fit your boat. Nautical charts are sourced from the NOAA in the United States and CHS in Canada.

- Community Boating -
Just like at the dock or on the water, we all help each other in Wavve Boating. Share expert knowledge of the local waterways by adding shared points of interest to the map. The community can vote on pins, making sure they are all valid and valuable. Not quite ready to share a great find? No problem, you can keep your points of interest private as well.

- Tides -
Track changes in water height in tidal regions and along rivers and lakes with the tides function. View a body of water in North America, and the app will update to reflect the current water levels. View predicted water heights up to 18 hours in advance and track the next tidal variances.

- Weather -
Check the weather, including a complete seven-day forecast, across all of North America. Easily view the temperature, wind speed, and wave height as you move around the map. The local daily forecasts are color-coded to show if it is dangerous to go boating, using guidelines from the Coast Guard's small vessel advisory.

- Fleets of Friends -
See who is on the water and where they are by adding friends to your fleet. Share your locations with members of your fleet to make meeting up a breeze. Want to keep your best fishing hole a secret, even from your boating buds? Easily hide your location to boat under the radar.

- So Long Chart Plotters -
Marine navigation is more than concentrating on a cluttered chart plotter. Get your head out of the cabin and enjoy the journey. Stop buying marine charts piece by piece for your chart plotter. Wavve Boating has integrated all the marine charts into one map for your boating GPS needs.

Essential for any frequent boater!!!

This app is amazing and goes beyond my expectations! I love the step by step of how to use the app and each of its functions for beginners such as myself! This app has every single available dock logged around me whether it’s for all the local popular well known spots or if it’s the small hidden docks that are not often used, this app has them all marked! I love the weather/wind prediction aspect so you’re always aware of the current and potential future conditions. Also love that you can enter your boat size into the app and it tells you in the what parts of the water are safe and deep enough to travel in and what parts are not deep enough for your boat, and that it changes based on the tides of that time! Overall I highly recommend and If you are a frequent boater this app is well worth the yearly subscription!

I have been using this app for well over 3 years now and it is absolutely incredible. The functionality and interface are rock solid and SIMPLE. You’re not going to be scrolling through various pages, trying to find the information you need. As a professional captain, I have used a lot of charting apps and software. Wavve is, hands down, the easiest and most intuitive nautical navigation app you can find. 5 out of 5 Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love the app…but should be able to install on more than one device

Update: I wrote the review below and they are paying attention and provided me with a temporary solution. Thank you.

I love the app but the subscription is not “family sharing” compatible. So the subscription is under my husband‘s Apple account but I can’t put it on my phone when I vote without him. We utilize family sharing and most apps allow this. Please enable

Developer Response ,

Hi NikTampa! Thanks for your feedback and so happy to hear you love the app! Family sharing is in our product pipeline, just one of those things we are working towards. Please reach out to us at community@wavveboating.com and we will provide you with a free subscription in the meantime.
