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 along the East Coast of Florida ending in the Florida Keys.
