More fun and less worry while on the water with Wavve Boating.

Intuitive and custom nautical charts - Mark your favorite spots - See your boating friends on the water.

Ever felt uneasy navigating new waters? Wanted to know your friend's location? Or looking for the best place route through a new body of water?

Wavve Boating takes a new spin on traditional boating apps by providing all of this and more in one easy to use tool. Join a community of boaters building a network of boating knowledge for all to enjoy.

With Wavve Boating you get:

Simple and Seamless Navigation - Forget those overcrowded, and unclear navigation experiences (you know who we’re talking about) with Wavve Boating, it’s as easy as staying in the blue, and avoiding the red.

Community Trips - Get out your boating comfort zone, load a trip up from a fellow Captain and follow in their wake! Save time planning for that excursion with the help of others. You can also plan your own route, record your trip and share it with the community for others to enjoy. At Wavve Boating, sharing is caring.

Customized Charts - Wavve Boating's innovative approach allows boaters to view and change charts based on their unique needs and preferences. You choose your draft and Wavve Boating redraws the chart data with your boat in mind. You can get a preview of our chart coverage at

Fleets of Friends - See who’s out on the water and where by adding friends to your fleet. Fleets make meeting up with friends on the water easy, and helping out other Wavvers even easier. Looking to boat under the radar? Easily hide your location at any time.

Local Knowledge - Just like on the water, on Wavve Boating, we all help each other out. Our map pinning functionality allows users to share their knowledge of the waterways. Our community of Wavvers vote on pins, making sure all pins are valid and valuable. Not willing to share a great find with other users? No problem. You have the option to keep the pins you add private.

Wavve Boating needs you! We've built the platform but it is boaters that will build our Wavver community. Share your knowledge, share your time, and save a prop or two in the process.

Current chart data includes coastal United States and Canada, The Great Lakes, The St. Lawrence River and portions of the Caribbean. Check it our here

I left a negative review some months back because the app was not working. You couldn't sign in. Apparently it's been fixed, so in the spirit of fairness I must admit that this app is really good. I navigated a very dark waterway using Wave and got home safely. Definitely worth the price for peace of mind.

Why spend thousands when you can use this simple app!

So living in the Florida Panhandle, we use our boat year round. There is nothing better than boating in the evenings and after dark. The only problem is that our channel markers are not lit. I don’t have the funds to purchase a fancy GPS unit with the marker coordinates built in. Every time I take my family on the boat at night, I simply pop open Wavve on my phone and have piece of mind knowing where every marker and shallow spot is located. This app is priceless, I literally use it every time I’m on the water! The developers continually keep it updated and they have awesome customer service. At least give the free trial a test. It is one of the only apps that I pay for and don’t mind spending the money for a yearly sub. It is worth every penny and some!

A Lifesaver for an Inexperienced Boater

Our family rented a house on Keewaydin Island, Florida that came with a boat so that we could get back and forth to Naples or Marcos Island. We knew that there were many shallow, almost-unnavigable areas, but we didn’t realize how shallow many channels were until I downloaded this app.

On our way home from Marcos Island one afternoon, a huge storm hit us. If I didn’t have this app, we would have had a really difficult time getting back to our rental house due to the lack of visibility.

I am a total beginner boater, but I was able to use this app to help us get home safely.
