Compatible with iPhone or iPad - FREE to download and FREE to use!

Argo is founded by a lifelong boater hailing from the Chesapeake Bay that felt there needed to be a better way for boaters to connect and share information on the water. We are also building an active boating community within the Argo app that you can turn to for navigation advice, local knowledge, destination reviews, and more.

Share your favorite voyages on your feed. Leave reviews on your favorite places. Drop a local knowledge pin to help your fellow boater. We hope you’ll join us on Argo!

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please send us a message... we welcome boater feedback and we’re working hard to make this your go-to boating app!
