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 30,000+ ships simultaneously.
Our incredible app performance means that you can see all tracked vessels at once.
Simply tap a ship to see its name, type, photos, speed, dimensions and much more.
Powerful features such as filters, search, night mode 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.

Does not work
Even if big ships is passing the coast where we live (Torre del Mar), they do not show on Shipfinder!
This app sucks
Ship finder used to my favourite tool helping identifying and locating ships wherever I go working in the maritime industry. For well over a year now it has been unable to locate any ships within a radius of approx. 25 miles from my position. I have reported this and received no reply. Have tried deleting and reinstalling, tampering with all settings etc. all to no use. Just like the app. Recommend all other apps cause this is just the worst. Shame on Pinkfoot.
Only half of the vessels visible to the eye is located in the app
