  • Constant extra fees

    By lpen8464
    Tracking my friends trip from CT to Bermuda on sailing vessel. Unable to get updated position unless I pay extra money every 24 hrs. A little ridiculous. What does the original app fee get you??
  • Great App

    It lets me monitor the movement of my boat at all times from anywhere in the world which i like. Also a great history of where we have been.
  • Cool and Accurate but a scam

    By FrankPagurko
    I use this app to track large vessels coming in for fuel. Worked great at first I thought. It is accurate, but sometimes when I need an updated position on a vessel I’m asked to pay another dollar, to think a $5 app would give you more functionality than that
  • Great service

    By Saguaro & Portia
    Accurate pleasure boat & huge ship position in Puget Sound. World ship & boat positions available when searching world maps.
  • What a shame...

    By BigAssYaht
    This app used to be a great tool for high seas mariners and pleasure boat users alike. Now they are withholding vessel info randomly and requiring payment for limited access to the vessel details. I am happy to pay well for a app and have full functionality. Please make Marine Traffic great again.
  • Information is only accurate half the time

    By KimA735
    I have had this app for almost a year now. My husband works on offshore tug boats and got to to be able to track where he is. It doesn’t track the boat past a certain point once he’s far from land and often it doesn’t even correctly say when he has artifices at his port. I have a basic account but I did still pay for the app and it should at least be able to properly give his position. That’s the whole idea of the app! A very good example is I know for a fact he had been docked at his destination port for over 24 hours now and this app still has him underway using engine near the Bahamas. It does say they have received more information in the last 24 hours and for .99 I can get it. Are you serious?!?!? Much of the time my saved fleet just disappears as well.
  • Great site

    Must have this app. I sit on my deck & can name every ship I see with all the pertinent info. Can’t wait to retire & just watch the ships go by. Thx MarineTraffic for giving me a new hobby for life.
  • About 13 days behind

    By SJGates
    My husband and crew left St. Maarten 13 days ago and are about 20 non miles from the Azores. I just got an alert from Marine Traffic that says they are in Anguilla.
  • They Took Away Yacht Identification!

    By Chippy Spartan
    I purchased this app several years ago to identify Great Lakes shipping. It was always useful and fun to look at the yachts along with their pictures and traffic patterns. In 2019 you can NO longer do that! Now, if you want to know the name of a yacht, you have to pay $1 for only 24 hours. And you ONLY get to see that one boat! I’m angry because I used to have that functionality. If you are into spotting yachts, take your money elsewhere!!
