The original and most highly rated ship tracking app

Our popular Ship Finder apps have been featured in maritime and sailing publications and websites across the globe.

Don’t take our word for it – check out our ratings and the wide range of positive press we’ve had across the world.

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.

Features include:

Live moving ships
Ship route trails
Search by vessel name
Ship information such as – Vessel Name, Port of Registration, Destination, ETA
Technical information such as – MMSI, IMO, Callsign , Heading, Length, Width, Draft

Ship Finder works by picking up AIS ship feeds used by all passenger vessels, vessels over 300 tons and increasingly smaller pleasure craft. This technology is actually faster than radar and is used directly by vessels for navigation.

Our global coverage is impressive and expanding all of the time, please check regularly for current coverage.

Pinkfroot are committed to customer service and continually improve our Ship Finder apps based on feedback. Follow us on Twitter @pinkfroot, and join our online community at If you have any questions please email and we’ll be happy to help.

Our companion App – Plane Finder is highly rated and enjoyed by both professionals and anyone with an interest in planes and ships.

    The program force closes on HTC Desire. Completely unstable. Should not be marketed.

    Unlike the PC version there doesn't seem to be an option to turn off ship tracking path so vessels like ferries get lost behind all the white lines.
