National Weather Service Marine Products via NOAA Telephone Recordings

The need for marine weather information via telephone recordings has decreased in recent years. As a result, some NWS offices have stopped providing this service. Some of the numbers on the list below may not be in service anymore. If you find a number listed below no longer in service, check this listing of telephone numbers for recorded forecasts from NWS offices. If you still can't find an accurate number, go to and click on an area of interest. The main page of the NWS office responsible for weather information in that area will pop up. Scroll to the bottom and there will be a phone number listed. There may be an option for recorded weather information using that number.  

The National Data Buoy Center offers a Dial-A-Buoy service. Mariners can hear the latest coastal and offshore weather observations using Dial-A-Buoy. Dial-A-Buoy also can read the latest NWS marine forecast, by zone, for most station locations. Dial-A-Buoy provides wind and wave measurements taken within the last hour at 65 buoy and 54 Coastal-Marine Automated Network (C-MAN) stations. The stations are located in the Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, and the Great Lakes and are operated by the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC). NDBC, a part of the National Weather Service (NWS), created Dial-A-Buoy to give mariners an easy way to obtain the reports via a cellular or satellite telephone.

The Physical Oceanographic Real-TimeSystem (PORTS®) offers toll-free numbers to obtain the latest water level, meteorological and temperature data for 18 different port areas.
