Description

Ship Finder shows live moving ships on a worldwide map. The intuitive design combined with incredible performance puts you in control. Watch in full screen, view in AR, search, add filters and so much more! Ship Finder has been top rated and top ranking since 2009 and covers most of the world, tracking 20,000+ ships simultaneously. Our incredible app performance means that you can see all tracked vessels at once - no clustering here! Simply tap a ship to see its name, type, photos, speed, dimensions and much more. Powerful features such as filters, search and the ability to save favourite ships are included. (You can choose Apple or Google maps too!). Add and browse bookmarks to saved locations around the globe to quickly navigate to areas or ports of interest. You can even use Augmented Reality (AR) view to identify ships out at sea using your device camera. Ship Finder works by picking up AIS ship feeds used by all passenger vessels, vessels over 300 tons and increasingly by smaller pleasure craft and yachts. This technology is actually faster than radar and is used by vessels for safety and navigation. Ship Finder provides near real time “virtual radar” AIS maps. It’s easy to use and is an amazing app for anyone interested in shipping, cruising and sailing in ports and locations across the world. It’s also great if you simply want to know what boats are out there or want to see where your friends and family are. Ship Finder is also used extensively by maritime professionals and mariners. Our global AIS coverage is impressive and expanding all of the time as we add new AIS feeds and receivers. Please check www.shipfinder.co regularly to see the latest coverage. Pinkfroot are committed to customer service and continually improve our Ship Finder apps based on feedback.

    I was looking for an app that could track ships in the Great Lakes. This app doesn’t do a very good job. Would recommend boatnerd.com.

    This app works great until the ship get over a 100 miles from shore and then it disappears... even from the search menu. If you are planning on tracking a cruise ship for its entire voyage... forget it
  • Not too good

    I live in Hawaii and bought the app to learn more about the cruise ships that visit here daily. It doesn't show the 3000 passenger ship that is right in front of me, or any ship traffic in Hawaii at all. Total waste of money.
  • In & out info

    Great app but lately the AIS info has been missing for certain areas, Savannah and Tampa on a regular basis. The rest of the world seems to be covered. Has anyone else experienced this?
  • Helpful but slow

    We use it to keep track of bigger boats as we sail around the San Juan islands near a big refinery port and across busy shipping lanes & ferry channels. It’s generally helpful, but the refresh interval often seems to be as long as 10 minutes, which is too slow.
  • Ships do not show up

    My house is on Lake Huron. Ship out front did not show up on your app. Why?

    This app shows vessels but I can’t figure out what/who the vessels are. Doesn’t relate to vessels I can physically see.🤷🏻‍♂️
  • Not worth the space or the money.

    Zero stars. Very disappointing. Not showing an exceptionally large cruise ship I am watching off shore headed out to sea. That is the rule rather than the exception. Don’t bother purchasing this app.
