The Next Wavve

1_Wavve Tides Prediction

Wavve Boating, a smartphone- and tablet-based navigation app, added a feature that provides real-time tide and current monitoring and water depths.

To seamlessly interpret tide tables, Wavve will utilize more than 4,300 water-level stations maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Canadian Hydrographic Services. As tides change, the map updates depths, contour lines and shoaling information, and displays tidal predictions up to 18 hours in advance.

The tide feature is part of the Wavve package that includes weather forecasts connected to Coast Guard small-craft advisories, customizable charts, crowdsourced points of interest, and the ability to see other users on the water in real time.

“We are working tirelessly to consolidate crucial boating information into one tool to make boating safer, easier and more enjoyable” CEO Adam Allore said in a statement. “This latest innovation is one more step toward our mission.”

The subscription-based service, which launched in 2017, is available for Apple and Android phones and tablets for $5 per month or $19.49 annually.
