About this app

This is the no-nonsense app to get you all the buoy information you need without the clutter of tide or weather forecasts.

You can quickly find current buoy conditions with our intuitive map and past buoy data with our interactive graphs.

Data is available from over 800 buoys and over 200 ships worldwide. Including both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans off of the United States and Canada, the Great Lakes, the Caribbean, and the waters around Ireland and Great Britain.

With NOAA Buoy Reports, you get:
- Intuitive map interface
- Quick-view Favorites
- Full buoy current conditions (always free)
- Ship observations (free preview)
- Past buoy data (up to 45 days ago with Professional upgrade)
- Interactive graphs
- Units in Metric or English
- Readings in local time
- Share data via Facebook, Twitter, Email, iMessage, etc.
- Home Screen widget to monitor your favorites

With our intuitive map interface, just tap on any buoy to get its latest reported conditions. A second tap will give you a complete summary of current conditions, or a graph of wind, wave, temperature, or pressure information so you can not only see what it's doing now, but what it was doing this morning, or even last week.

You can also add "Favorites" to quickly see what you are important to you with just a glance, and even monitor your favorites with the included Today widget.

This app DOES NOT provide tide data, or maritime or other weather forecasts. There are dedicated apps for these from other publishers that do an excellent job. This app specializes exclusively on buoy and ship observation data.

Please note that not all buoys have all types of data available, and buoy's do experience intermittent outages - a life at sea can be harsh!

5* SO FAR! Just now downloaded this app because of the March 16, 2022 Honshu, Japan tsunami threat. I want to see if buoys were being tossed about so I would know if I should be watchful here on the Oregon Coast. Unfortunately (or fortunately) the buoy I tapped on says there is currently no reading. So either that buoy's reading are out of service or there is truly no threat. But I figure, every little bit helps. So I think Im really liking this app so far. I will update if it is problematic.

Thank you for trying the app and the review! One word of caution though, due to the nature of Tsunami waves (small height in deep ocean, only get big in shallow water), using the wave height reported from buoys is not a good indicator of tsunami threat. For tsunami threats, a great source of info is official NOAA web page at "https://Tsunami.Gov".
