*** Participate in the implementation of a more respectful yachting***

DONIA is above all a community of enthusiasts who exchange information to make their sailing or motoring trips easier, richer, safer and more respectful. Since 2018, Donia users have helped preserve 76 ha of posidonia from being uprooted by anchoring, why not you?

*** By enthusiasts for enthusiasts***

Created by marine biologists and divers from Andromède Océanologie, Donia aims to make maps of the seabed visible and accessible so that everyone can participate in their protection. In order to take advantage of the famous maritime solidarity, the application responds to the desires of users and listens to them in order to make it an innovative and effective tool for anchoring and protection.

*** DONIA Mooring ***

The DONIA application incorporates the mapping of buoys and mooring boxes into a buoy reservation module called "DONIA Mooring". It integrates, in real time: the availability calendar of these mooring devices, pricing by class of vessel and slots, reservation and management of secure payment via mobile phone.


The Premium version of the application (€24.99 per year, €2.99 per month) gives access to the SHOM (Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine) charts (updated in 2022) as well as nearly 230 high-definition bathymetric charts allowing any user to find new sites of interest, plan diving routes, or even visualise faults and rocky outcrops

Geo location only possible if you give permission all the time so that donia can monitor you 24/7 . Welcome to the surveillance era. This app is horrible, but in some place they kind of force you to use it .
