We have 2 different types of weather service (Custom and Regional):

Custom forecasts by email, voice telephone, text, created just for you and your itinerary, including departure timing advice, forecast, routing advice (we coach you to make optimum weather-based decisions), and GulfStream currents, if applicable. Geography is worldwide. Cost is $35-$70 per forecast, depending on length, or $299 for a 10-pack of Custom forecast credits, good for a year.

We also do Custom forecasts by Webcast and SSB Voice Nets for a flat subscription of $199/yr or $99/mo

Our 2nd type of forecast is a Regional Daily Email forecast, providing the information you need for making your own good weather-based decisions (information is geared specifically for small sail and power vessels, but is not Custom for your vessel and itinerary). Regions include Caribbean, Bahamas-Florida, and US E Coast. Cost $199/yr, or $99 for 3mo, or $55/mo. You can also COMBINE with Webcasts/SSB Voice Nets for a total of $299/yr or $129/mo.

Still not sure which service is best for you?

Many clients use both - relying on our economical Regional Daily Email forecasts to make their own good decisions most of the time, then purchasing a Custom forecast when they want personalized input from an experienced meteorologist.

To do this, we suggest starting with the Regional Daily Email Subscription, and if you also want a Custom forecast immediately, add a NOTE to the order asking us to add that.

If you do NOT have an account, please visit then click any orange "sign-up" link then complete and submit the form, or call 863-248-2702 anytime after 10am AST/EDT.

We look forward to assisting...Chris, Shawn and Stormy.
