NOAA’s Ship Tracker

NOAA's Ship Tracker shows information about the location, present and past, of NOAA's ships. Ship location and the conditions where the ship was located are maintained on this site for one year.

  • For information about using the Ship Tracker site, visit the help page.
  • For general information about the NOAA fleet, visit NOAA's Office of Marine and Aviation Operations.
  • This site requires a modern browser and works best with a window resolution of at least 1024x768.
  • Ship locations are available as KML feed. Click here to open the current locations in Google Earth or look at the API on the bottom of the help page.
  • NOAA raster charts are updated monthly and are not to be used for navigation. Information available here. Weather comes from the NOAA nowCOAST site.
  • For questions or problems with the map viewer, please email the EED Shiptracker distribution list at eed.shiptracker@noaa.gov
