Automatic Identification System

We are primarily concerned with small, relatively vulnerable vessels. However we are aware of larger vessels in our area with Automatic Identification System (AIS) equipment on board.

The website marinetraffic.com publishes the locations of all such vessels anywhere in the world. Courtesy of that website, on this page we display that information for vessels currently close to our watchstation.


Let your cursor rest on any vessel to see its name, course and speed – click to see more information about it.
