What You Get With Wayfinder

Largest network of ocean weather data
We’ve got you covered with Sofar’s planetary-scale ocean data network. Continuous weather updates from our proliferation of Spotters help you navigate with efficiency, safety, and ease.

No cost to getting started
Getting started with Wayfinder is simple: install and go. No additional hardware or installation costs, and minimal product training is needed.

Real-time monitoring
The ocean can change in an instant. That’s why we provide instant route updates and guidance, proactively alerting you any time there could be an issue.

Custom vessel performance models
No two vessels are exactly alike. Combining your historical noon report data, ship properties, and our historical weather data, we generate unique speed, fuel, and safety profiles for your vessel to predict its performance in all conditions.

Low-bandwidth access
Keeping in mind internet conditions at sea, we’ve built Wayfinder to ensure that Captains can access it anytime, anywhere — even in bandwidth-constrained situations.

Continuous route optimization
Our algorithms evaluate over 100 million routing options based on the latest weather from our Spotter grid and deliver the safest and most profitable route directly to ship Captains and fleet operations teams.
