  • No local forecast

    Poor app
  • No buoy data after update

    By jFutrelle
    After updating yesterday, the app isn't pulling wave height/period, wind, temps, or really any data for my local buoys. I went online via browser and confirmed that they are active and logging data. Not sure what's going on with the app. Normally 5-star.

    Awesome resource.
  • No Info

    By Off Fishing
    This app provides very little or no info on offshore sea conditions at the bouys listed.
  • Great App

    Nearly everything I need for marine route planning, with the exception of currents.

    Great access to the most timely information available. Uncomplicated and stable. You can’t beat it.
  • Not finished I hope

    No wave heights , which are very important to boaters.
  • Buoy Cast is awesome!

    Here in North Puget Sound area, it is crucial to know conditions "out there." Buoy Cast keeps us safe. Thanks!

    I don't have to go topside and turn on weather channel or fire up PC or TV... I just open this app and my nearshore weather and forecast is there and in a very pleasing format. I love it! This is the same data I can get elsewhere but quicker and prettier!
