Ever been curious about the ships and yachts off the Oregon Coast?
Port pilots, dockworkers, ship spotters, and maritime enthusiasts rely on Ship Finder, an app that identifies commercial vessels and pleasure craft.
You can view the information online or on your smart phone. Track a friend on a ship or boat, or just learn more about the vessels at sea.
The Ship Finder App can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. The App works by picking up ship feeds used by commercial and pleasure vessels to transmit their name, position and status. The radio transmissions are sent to internet servers and uploaded onto live data coverage maps. It’s a fun way to see all the traffic on the water.
If you have ever been curious about the ships from around the world or the yachts from afar that travel off the Oregon coast, to the Port of Astoria and up the Columbia River, Ship Finder is how you can learn more.
Tolovana Inn’s ocean front rooms are great for spotting vessels at sea.
