In ShipAtlas it is easy to check the distance, or the time it will take to sail, between two ports because you can use our sea route calculator to create a sea route between any ports on the map.

How to Create a Sea Route from a Port

Step 1

Click on the "Sea Route" section in the sidebar menu, then click on "From a Port".

Step 2

Enter the name of the port in the search field or pick a port from the list of your recent searches. You can also use the funnel button to the right in the search field to use filters in your search.

Step 3

Then click "Choose Destination" and search for the name of the second port you want to include in your route. Keep adding as many ports to your route as you want by clicking "Add Destination". You can click and drag on the ports in your sea route calculation to change the order of ports in the calculation.

If necessary, you can edit the speed and consumption of the voyage sailing this route as you please. You can also click on the vessel icon on the right side of "Voyage Information" to use the speed and consumption of a specific vessel.

If you are happy with the given information that is already there, just leave it be.

Step 3

When you have added the port(s) and are happy with the vessel information the sea route calculator will create a route on the ShipAtlas map. If it is unclear because of its color you can change the color of the route on the card at the bottom of your map. This card also shows you the ETA, distance, time at sea, and consumption on the voyage.

Step 4

If you want to access more information about the route, you can click on

"More Details" in the route menu.

Step 5 (Premium Plan)

If you have the premium plan, it is time for you to save your route!

Give it a name and click on the "Done" button. You can now easily find your way back to it every time you open the sea route calculator.

Unfortunately, this step is not available for the FREE and Standard plans.
