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.

    Side by side, Marine Traffic has better coverage. For example, at 2:45 PM US eastern, this app thinks there's one ship in the entire USVI. Marine Traffic shows 20+. Having just come back from down there, I can tell you which is right, and the answer isn't

    Very disappointed. It's not anywhere close to the standard of plane finder. No wonder there isn't a trial version to try! Don't download, find something else.

    I should of read the reviews before buying this app, complete waste of time and money, you would hope that the developers of this app would take on board all the poor reviews and do something to rectify

    I installed application but there is only a empty map. No any vessel. No any information. No any search possibility. This is definetely crook robbing programme because there is no refund money option as well.
