Your iPhone is a great resource for information on boat and beach conditions.  It is truly amazing the amount of data you can have at your fingertips. Here is a list of my favorite apps that I have on my phone!

Boat Ramps-  This handy app will show the boat ramps in your neighborhood by entering your location. It lists the address of the ramp and can give you directions.

EPA Sunwise UV- When your out on the water or on the sand you are exposed to a high amount of UV radiation. By using this app you can your current uv index for your exact location. It also gives you recommendations on how to protect yourself based upon the uv index number. It also gives you a 3 day UV index forecast for all of the U.S.

NOAA Buoys- Curious what the current water temperatures and wave heights are in your area? Well this neat app can give you that information! It also offers low and high tide information as well as past hourly observations of air and water temps as well as wind speeds!

NOAA Radio Free-  No longer do you need to carry a weather radio! You can get the current weather conditions and storm warnings, as well as special weather statements for any state in the U.S. with this excellent app!
