Better Data Means Better Forecasts Saildrone’s mission is to collect and share more data about the planet. The oceans cover more than 70% of Earth’s surface and drive weather, regulate temperature, and ultimately support life on Earth. Much of the weather we experience on land starts in the oceans, so we believe weather forecasting should start in the oceans, too. Our global fleet of saildrones continuously sails the world’s oceans collecting atmospheric and oceanographic data. These expeditions generate unmatched, proprietary high-resolution data sets that are used by scientists at the world’s leading science organizations to better understand air-sea interactions and improve long-range weather forecasting and prediction of extreme weather events. We invite you to join our mission! Download Saildrone Forecast now. Some icons by Icons8.

Hit or Miss

When this app shows data, it is 5 star. Easy to navigate. But sometimes I log on, zoom in on SF Bay, overlay tide, and just see a blank bay with no tide, as I did just now. Looking for SF Tides for a regatta today, and when I pull up the app, nothing. I can overlay wind, but not tide. This seems to happen 25% of the times that I open my app. Paying for an app that is this unreliable is quite frustrating. Pearl

Interesting and pretty accurate

Saildrone Forecast is an interesting endeavor using autonomous marine vehicles to collect weather data. This allows them data that others don’t have, making weather forecasts pretty accurate, especially on the coast. The UI is nice and has a richness that makes it nice and easy to use. So why not 5 stars? Mainly two items. The first is that every time I open the app it shows winds, and I cannot seem to change that. I would like either a default setting, or that it remembered what layer o had active last. The second is that when you click the “Help & FAQ” link in the app, it takes you to a Zendesk page that says the following “Oops, this help center no longer exists The company you're looking for is no longer using our help center. We suggest reaching out to them directly via their official website.” To me that is very lacking in care of customers. Especially for a paying customer.

I love this app!!!

I just started using this app to track off-shore current as well as tidal current in the SF Bay. A fellow multi-hull racer shared this app with me. What a find and how sporting of him to share - Really! There is nothing else like it. I’ll be using it for races as well as for cruising. 😎 🏆⛵️

This one (Saildrone) and Windy are my two favorites while doing maritime activities

Best sailing app

I love full time on a sailboat. Trust me,this app is so accurate. No other apps can match the current and oceanic weather predictions. So far it’s been spot on and we have other apps that give 5-6 models all different with having to try to be ready for everything. This is my go-to app for sailing. Their Gulf Stream real-time is fantastic. A must have for sailors or anyone on the water. SV Kalon II

Too expensive.

Pretty pathetic compared to some others

What’s the point in providing layers, or at least calling them layers, when it’s only possible to see one at a time? Looked good from the outside, but not so great in action. Back to MyRadar!
