Recommended Boating Apps...

  • Navionics – Please do yourself a favor and purchase the Navionics app for your iPhone or Android device! Buying maps that cover the U.S. & Canada costs $14.99 and is well worth it. This can act as a backup navigation device (charts are as good as the chartplotter), and it has several terrific planning functions including tide tables and current information.

  • Anchor Alarm - This is a must for spending the night on the hook! It will alarm if the boat drifts beyond your set limit.

  • Weatherbug – Good weather overview, non-marine forecasts, make sure to get marine weather!
(Official Marine WX on Gateway’s site:

  • WSDOT – Great tool for ferry routes and maps. Also excellent for traffic and pass conditions –
