Wavve Boating releases a new water level/tides monitoring and prediction tool. Using over 4300 water stations, the Wavve Boating map dynamically updates to show current and future water level predictions to make navigating tidal areas easier. This update is available now for Apple and Android phones and tablets.

If you haven't heard of Wavve Boating, it is an easy to use marine navigation app that helps boaters navigate and explore with ease, while connected to their boating community. It's like Google Maps or Waze, but for boaters. Recently promoted by Apple as a "New App We Love", and integrated onto the 2021 Sea-Doo GTX, this app provides intuitive, customizable nautical charts, crowdsourced points of interest, and the ability to see your aquatic friends. "We are working tirelessly to consolidate crucial boating information into one tool to make boating safer, easier and more enjoyable" stated Adam Allore CEO of Wavve Boating. "This latest innovation is one more step towards our mission and we can't wait to help more boaters this summer".

Interpreting tide tables is a crucial step prior to a successful day on the water. Unfortunately, it is often overlooked because it is yet another difficult step in the navigation process. Many recreational boaters, new and experienced, find themselves running aground or stuck on a sandbar when the tide goes out.

This innovation consolidates tidal information and nautical mapping in one seamless experience. Wavve Boating's map updates depths, contour lines, and shoaling information as water levels change and shows tidal predictions up to 18 hours in advance to help boaters stay out of trouble.

This new feature accompanies state-of-the-art weather forecasts, connected to Coast Guard small craft warnings, and a redesigned Wavve Boating experience that makes it easier than ever to navigate and find new adventures on the water. As the demand for recreational boating grows, and more families look to the water to build familial bonds, the technology to teach and support new boaters has become more important than ever before.

In March of 2021 there was a 57.8% year-over-year increase in boat registrations for vessels under 30 feet in length. However, more boats on the water has resulted in more boating accidents. In 2020, Florida counted 16% more boating incidents, and according to the Mariners General Insurance Group, hitting underwater objects is the most common accident. After seeing that first-time boat buyers accounted for 31% of new boat sales, Wavve Boating created a solution that offers the most critical safety information for boaters in one convenient platform. "We're doing our job if we can help new boaters reduce their anxiety of heading out on the water while supporting this renaissance in boating" stated Allore.

Wavve Boating's Tides update is available now in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. You can start a free, two-week trial or subscribe for $4.99 per month or $19.49 per year.
