A Boaters Companion

Connect with each other on the water.


App Features

Plan a trip, event, shop, or post pictures and share stories all in one boating friendly app.

Interactive Map

An interactive map that includes places of interest that grows every day. Locations include boat ramps, fishing spots, dive locations, hiking trails, biking trails, hunting spots, outdoor businesses, plus you can add your own.

Local Weather & Tide Info

Location-based weather, forecasts, and tidal details in the area you are checking out! *Tidal details useful for offshore purposes.

Marine Marketplace

List locally or across the country. Community businesses can list for free and showcase specials or events.


Boating Community

Let’s face it, social media can become a very dark place. So why not share posts, images, or videos in the app that doesn’t allow for anger or negativity. Plus, location sharing and a SMART-SOS service to alert local users or friended app users when you need help.

Create & Share An Event

Create and organize your own RaftUp, TieUp, CoveUp or a fishing tournament, or any water event.

A little over 3 years ago my friends and I were in a boating accident. It was very scary and it took the first responders awhile to find us since we weren’t sure exactly where we were. As soon as I found out about RaftUp I downloaded it and told everyone I knew to download it. I have not needed to use the app yet but I feel so much more safe when on the boat with friends and family!!!

It’s also a great way to advertise your business!!!

Thank you RaftUp for keeping me friends and family safe!
