The Station List

The tables below list the coast stations and buoys along the East Coast of the United States. We have broken it down by geographic area to assist in locating the stations of importance to you. We have also converted the mixed character and number station id’s to their numeric equivalent to aid in dialing in the correct number.


We have started in the north with Maine and continued south to Florida and the Keys.

Here are quick links to the major sections of this page:


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 your recommendations.
