Sea routes, distances and lat-long coordinates

Though the sea route calculator is not a navigational tool for navigators; we are very proud of our sea route calculator. We recommend comparing the ShipIntel sea route calculator with any other sea route calculators there are.

In ShipIntel, you can create, save and send sea routes calculated from any of the vessel's real-time AIS positions to any port or combination of ports, or you can route between ports. You will get warnings if you try to route a vessel through a canal or strait if the canal constraints show that your vessel is too large to pass.

The sea route calculator is excellent for cases such as your vessel is on its way to Tubarao with an ETA on the 1st of March, and your broker asks if your vessel can go to Itaqui instead and ask when she will be there. Or, you are asked to give 3 new discharge options after you have fixed the vessel and are asked when you can arrive and to quote a freight rate.

You may need to bunker to reach one of these destinations. Therefore, you can add the bunker ports to find where you can bunker, which grades are available, and at which prices. The bunker prices are updated daily.

You can calculate the sea distance from any of the vessel's positions to any ports to find the deviation time from the vessel's existing position and the ETA to the possible new destination.

Get started by search or click on the vessels or ports, and click the sea route calculator icon. You can click and drag the line on the web to add waypoints or alternative routes (as in Google maps).
