“The official NOAA buoys are essential tools that pro surfers use, and you should too. This app is definitely a steal.” – Surfer Magazine
"’It's actually great for figuring out what's going on when you wake up in the dark and need figure out what's going on, without leaving your bed’ […] If the surf hasn't cleaned up yet, or the swell hasn't arrived, no one wants to stumble out into a 40-degree morning […] It's also good for getting real time info to track a swell, watching the numbers rise or fall.” – www.espn.com
The app “processes countless data from NOAA’s buoys and displays it in an easy-to-read format on your phone.” – Eastern Surf Magazine
The NOAA Ocean Buoys application provides users with access to live data transmitted from over 200 buoys scattered throughout North America, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean. Most buoys provide information about current wave heights, wave periods, wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, water temperature, atmospheric pressure, pressure tendency, and dew points. It also provides tide information for the USA including Alaska and Hawaii. You can also save your favorite Buoys and Tides for easy retrieval! One of the best tools for professionals and general enthusiasts alike.
THIS APPLICATION IS PERFECT FOR:

This app all the sudden stopped working. When you click on it the screen goes to a Go Daddy screen. I can't even contact customer support. I paid for this app too. I liked it and used it frequently. I just wish if would start working again or someone would tell me it will soon because now I'm searching for the next best thing.
Solid app, but one other feature would be nice
App is great. Does everything advertised. Just wish it would let you view historical data for buoys. At least going back a month would be a start.
I have the non-pro version and just upgraded so I could get the tides around me and it's exactly what I wanted. Also being able to save my favorites is really helpful. Perfect for fishing here in Florida!
