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.

Marine Marketplace

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!
