About Wavve Boating

Wavve Boating is a Kingston-based startup that’s goal is to completely disrupt the boating industry with our app that takes a modern spin on nautical charts and the on-the-water social community. Enabling boaters to confidently navigate and explore with ease, while connected to their boating community, is what we do.

Three years ago, we set out to transform the boating experience on the 1000 islands. Today our app serves boaters all across North America, and was just integrated onto the 2021 Sea-Doo.

  • Be Better Every day: We push ourselves and each other to learn, improve, and get better every day

  • Always remember the Data: It supports the decisions and conclusions we make
  • Embrace the journey, together: We learn from the lows, we celebrate the highs, and we always make sure to enjoy ourselves with laughter and fun along the way
  • Collaborative: We love creating win-win situations between our teammates, customers, and stakeholders.
  • Accountability: We own an “it’s on me” mentality to grow ourselves and the business.
