Ship Finder iOS App Details

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 20,000+ ships simultaneously. Our incredible app performance means that you can see all tracked vessels at once - no clustering here! Simply tap a ship to see its name, type, photos, speed, dimensions and much more. Powerful features such as filters, search 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 regularly to see the latest coverage. Pinkfroot are committed to customer service and continually improve our Ship Finder apps based on feedback.

    Good tool lots of bells and whistles and seems accurate and in real time
  • How do I get my money back?

    By ejt109
    It says it tracks all passenger ships, yet only a handful of major line cruise ships show up. Since I got it to track cruise ships, it is actually worthless.
  • Worthless

    It's not accurate. It can't find the ships that you are looking for.
  • Not accurate

    By Anon my nose
    Does not show ships that are shown on my laptop at the same time. Maybe there is a huge delay.
  • Watching the Boats Go By

    Spending the summers on the shores of Beaver Island, MI, USA, its fin to identify the vessels passing miles off shore. The app provides the name, flag of port, speed, size, and more information on ships. It's user friendly and can be displayed on either Google Maps or Apple Maps. Photos of many of the identified ships help to reveal what you're seeing 15 miles off shore.
  • Don't. Waste money
