“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.” –

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 120 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. One of the best tools for professionals and general enthusiasts alike.

NOAA Buoys

Great app,very intuitive to use. With all the major NOAA buoys available, the info supplied from the buoys lets you know what is happening with the ocean direct from the NOAA buoys. Watching the ocean while checking the buoy data on your iphone gives you insight for later as to what the conditions are when you can't see the ocean, a great learning tool. Finding buoys at other locations is a snap also.

Awesome app let's me check the tides in hawaii where alot of my family lives and you know how Hawaii can get some huge waves. Although it does have one problem, some buoys can go offline like during a hurricane, tsunami, or technical difficulties

NOAA Buoys

Extremely useful and very easy to use. A buoy often used was missing and they added it very quickly. I use the buoy reports for scuba diving and this app provides the information quickly
