Your favourite boating app has had an exciting rebuild in time for summer.
We’ve made major changes following feedback from water users.
The brand new look and feel is cleaner and easier to read, and there’s a fresh new home screen icon to match.
The app now opens to the map screen, giving you easy access to tide times, VHF channels, boat ramps and other helpful info.
The app is faster, so you can get to what you’re looking for quicker.
We hope you like it. Leave a review to give us your feedback about the new app or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy and stay safe out there!
Ratings and Reviews
Took several attempts before it loaded properly- display was jumbled. Finally got it.
Easy to use, relevant local information. Helps you find boat ramps etc. and allows you to work out where you can or cannot play!!!
I have told lots of people about this. Boat ramps and the costs are helpful.
Best boatie app I have have seen here or overseas!
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
