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.

    but they’re not showing up on the app. Not worry the $5.00, stick with the lite version.
  • Not good

    By Darrongoofball89
    I’m currently in Grandeur of the Seas, and according to the map on this app, I’m sitting in the middle of the ocean by myself. There is no ship!!! The cargo ship we just passed is also not there! Is this whole day a dream? Get it together!!!!
  • Ok but...

    I like the app but you should know that it only works for ships near the coast. I paid for the ad free version so I could identify ships we passed while on a cruise in the Caribbean only to fine it did not work off shore. If your needs are close to shore I recommend.
  • It was good

  • Not enough images

    I’m kind of disappointed. Most ships do not have images so it feels like the app is not as good as it should be. Search is also not too good. If you reach a cruise ship by name you will rarely find it.
  • Waste of money

    Can’t believe I paid for this. Most of the time it doesn’t track ships and ferries that other apps do.
  • Crap

    Couldn’t find the name of the ship I have found in almost all other ship tracking app.
