Paid to BoatWavve Boating’s newest app feature allows you to record your boating trips and share it with the community so other Captains can follow in your wake. For a limited time, get paid to record your favorite cruises.

In time for summer, Wavve Boating is announcing the release of the highly anticipated Community Trips feature. Similar to Strava™, Wavve Boating allows users to contribute routes directly to a map interface, except this map has over 2000 nautical charts across North America. To help populate the map with useful routes for other boaters, Wavve Boating has launched ‘The Admiral Program’, to compensate selected mariners for their input. Available for download on Apple and Android mobile devices, Wavve Boating is the perfect on the water companion.

Wavve Boating is gaining traction across North America where it has been promoted by Apple as ‘News Apps We Love’ and was nominated as the best new technology product at the Newport International Boat Show. Delivering the freedom to have fun, Wavve Boating has simplified the nautical chart reading process with customized and intuitive nautical charts. You input your boat details, and Wavve Boating redraws the chart data recommending everywhere your boat CAN go in blue, and everywhere you can’t, in red.

The newest Community Trip feature, has enhanced the social functionalities offered to the Wavve Boating community. Now with the first EVER repository of community generated, shared, and reviewed routes i.e Trips, mariners can browse, preview, and follow proven trips taken by vessels with a similar draft (depth into water), instead of planning a new trip of their own.

With the help of the Admiral Program, Wavve Boating is populating the community map with various types of trips i.e fishing, sightseeing, and longer destination trips. These selected Admirals, are compensated based on how many times their route is used by other ‘Wavvers’. Interested in applying to become an Admiral? Check out the application page here.

Regarding Wavve Boating’s market, there are 17 million registered recreational boats within the United States and Canada, and the industry is growing at 5% per year. Wavve Boating is tailored to a younger generation that has seen less boat ownership, but similar rates of boating participation when compared to older generations. This millenial market has seen the success of apps like Waze™ and Strava™ that focus on the value of community sourced information. As stated by Adam Allore, CEO and Founder of Wavve Boating - “There is so much on-the-water knowledge, but it is in everyone’s heads. This industry needs a proper crowd sourcing platform, and that’s what we are providing at Wavve Boating”.

Wavve Boating is offered via two subscription options of $2.99/month or $12.99/year. For the next month, Wavve.
