Ship Finder App Description

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.

  • Can’t get any of the boats in the South Pacific , Let alone tracking them

    By cxsxi
    Shouldn’t have paid extra not worth it. Can’t send this because every time I try you say my nickname has been taken starting to think this is a real Sham
  • Awful

    By deniseripley57
    Actually bought this because prior app Marin Traffic, stopped working. I use it to follow my son and the yacht he is working on. So disappointed and have renewed my feelings to NEVER spend money on an app.
  • Nothing shown in Hawaii

    By C-Wave
    I bought this to keep tabs on cruise and container ship traffic in Hawaii. Nothing at all shows up for me in my part of the world.
  • Just Doesn’tWork

  • Disappointed

    By $$John2015
    I bought this to track a cruise I’m going on. It couldn’t find the ship even though it’s Carnival and shows up on other apps even the free ones. Don’t waste your money.

    Great program and it works great.
  • Ripped Off

    By Cookee80
    Not one Royal Caribbean cruise ship can be found. I want my money back, but I doubt that will happen. I should have read the reviews more closely.
