KnowWake: The Leading Boat Navigation App

Getting out onto the open water either as a recreational boater or surfer can be one of the most exhilarating experiences. However, it is also essential to stay connected with other vessels in the area and stay updated with safety information for a more fulfilling boating experience. One boat navigation app is providing an all-around experience, from a minute check-up list before going on the open water to real-time safety information from other boats in the area. That app is KnowWake.

KnowWake is a must-have waterway navigation app that is all about improving the boating experience and staying safe on the water. The navigation app is driven by proactive reporting from real-time on-water users and historical data sourced from local law enforcement and government agencies. With this data, the KnowWake app consistently recommends the safest routes, the best places to go boating, and proximity to critical marine services, helping its users explore all the waterfront and dockside locations across the US, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. 

Additionally, users can find friends, share live locations, create groups with everyone for added online and offline connectivity, and share things like hazards, marine life, police, and other important information in real-time. Users can also easily navigate the water route without using a dated, clunky piece of expensive equipment. This mobile platform puts everything in the palm of your hand. “KnowWake is about safety, connectivity, and fun on the water. The community is growing with more features being added every day to better connect our users in different ways. Sharing and location-based information is a big help on the water,” stated Dan Karsko, KnowWake’s founder and chief manager. 

One of the unique features of the navigation app is that it is absolutely free. It is available for download on the Apple app store and Google Play app store. It’s rated 4.3 stars on the Apple app store, and many users have attested to the helpfulness of the app. 

One user wrote, “If you fish, boat, do water sports or more, using KnowWake is a no brainer. That’s why I downloaded this need-to-have boaters app. After using it a couple of times, I’ve realized that everyone should have it because the captain of your vessel, or your day outing, may not. For example, I visited some friends in Virginia, and we went boating in an area I am completely unfamiliar with, but when they asked what bar we should head to for lunch, KnowWake had the answer. On another occasion, I got up early to go fishing only to find out that my local bishop had just gone out of business and KnowWake had an alternative at 4:30 AM, right when I needed it most. Not just that, but if you live in a place like South Florida, you also have the option to drive to a great restaurant or hangout spot using KnowWake. Thanks to the brilliant team at KnowWake for always having my back when I need or want any fishing or water sport-related suggestions.”
