Paddle Logger is an iOS app designed by paddlers for paddlers to track your water routes and miles, give you safety features and more. This app helps add even more value to all your paddling adventures.

For paddleboarders, canoeists, kayakers and packrafters, Paddle Logger is an award-winning app with both a free and paid version for iPhone and iWatch (sorry, it’s not available for Android yet):

Paddle Logger: What Does the Free Version Include?

With Paddle Logger’s free app you can track your routes, edit trip notes and share your routes with your friends, use the detailed logbook with its data and maps, and view your paddle statistics with its built-in widget.

It includes an adjustable delay so you can stow your iPhone safely away in a dry bag before starting, if necessary. It recognizes Siri and integrates with Apple Health.

It even has a built-in water lock for your Apple Watch in case you take an unexpected swim or take on splash from waves.

What Paddlers Are Saying about Paddle Logger

With almost 4,000 reviews as of this writing, Paddle Logger has a 4.7 star rating on the Apple Store—pretty darn good!

Here’s what a couple users said about Paddle Logger:

“I am a hobby paddler in Oahu and was looking for something to track my workouts. After looking around, PaddleLogger was everything I was looking for and more! As a personal rule I look for free services because paying for apps has always seemed to me a waste of money but after having (and enjoying) the free version of PaddleLogger I went ahead and bought the upgrade to unlock my speed data and I could not be happier!” - 4/2021

“This is my second season using Paddle Logger. I’ve logged hundreds of miles of river and lake kayaking with the Apple Watch app and then reviewed my workouts on the iPhone. Regular updates have steadily added worthwhile new features and improved functionality, and occasional bugs have been fixed quickly. I’ve reached out to support on several occasions and each time they’ve been responsive, proactive, thorough, and successful in helping me solve my problems. I highly recommend both the app and the company that makes and supports it.” - 9/2020
