BuoyPro Press Kit
BuoyPro is a powerful marine weather app that's also privacy conscious. Get the latest NOAA weather observations from over 800 weather buoys spread across the world's oceans. BuoyPro is a great companion for boating and sailing.
Note: BuoyPro requires an internet connection. While the app provides data around the world, the best coverage is around the United States and US territories.

Who is this app for?
Ideal for sailors/boaters, or anyone else interested in marine weather.
Origin of the app
We started out creating a tides & fishing times app, and included weather buoy observations. We got requests from boaters and sailors for an app that was focused on buoy observations and marine weather, rather than primarily on tides.
BuoyPro is free, but the free version shows ads for our Premium service and is missing some features. BuoyPro Premium removes the ads, trends, full marine forecasts, layout customization, supports ongoing development of the app, and more.
BuoyPro Premium is available at $0.99/month or $5.99/year. Our premium service subscriptions have a 1 week free trial, so you can try Premium out risk-free.
