The Caribbean’s Current Marine Weather Observations

Dial-A-Buoy - Caribbean

Dial-A-Buoy provides the mariner with an easy to use system to receive current weather information for the Caribbean and its surrounding waters. The system is accessed through a toll free phone number allowing the mariner to gather up to date weather information any time and anywhere they can make a phone call.

The Station List

The table below lists the coast stations and buoys in the vicinity of the Caribbean. We have also converted the mixed character and number station id’s to their numeric equivalent to aid in dialing in the correct number.

While not every station has been included, the list is comprehensive enough to provide very good coverage. If any errors are noted or if you would like to see a particular station included that we have left out, please e-mail us with any corrections or recommendations.
