App Description

Ever wanted to know more about ships and boats, or track a vessel around the globe? Boat Watch lets you spot and identify boats and ships in an instant.

An optional In-App purchase even sends you alerts when a boat you track sets sail or arrives - perfect for people with loved ones at sea, for tracking ferries and rescue vessels - or following cargo across the world!

Boat Watch is a free app, which offers...

* Spot any boat or ship via real-time AIS network
* See the name, type and destination of each vessel
* Set any boat as a favorite, and track it on the map
* Search and find boats and places

Optional In-App Upgrade Purchases adds...

Pro upgrade ( one time purchase):-
* Full boat information - picture, speed, where its from, etc.
* Show boat's recent tracks
* Set multiple favorite boats, to find them easily
* Get alerts when a tracked boat arrives or departs
* Augmented Reality. View a ship and see its name and details
* OpenSeaMap charts with buoys, lighthouses & shipping lanes

Fleet upgrade ( subscription):

Boat Watch also gives you the option to buy official NOAA nautical charts for the US and UK&IE so you get the same view of the ocean as the ship's navigator. See the shipping channels, buoys, lights and hazards and why a ship is taking a particular route.

Our ship coverage is global and amongst the best in the world. You can find out how our system works and check our coverage here :-
