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

Steps to take:

1) Click on the "Sea Route Calculator" section in the sidebar menu.

2) Choose "From Port".

3) Enter the name of a 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.

4) Continue making your sea route by selecting your next destinations.

Click on the "Choose Destination" field and search for the name of the second port you want to include in your route.

Keep adding as many ports as you would like by clicking "Add Destination".

Note: You can hold and drag the ports in your sea route calculation to change the order of ports.

5) When you are done adding destinations, the sea route calculator will create a route on the ShipAtlas map. To access more information about the route, click on

"Sea route details" in the sidebar menu.

6) If necessary, you can edit the speed and consumption of the voyage sailing this route as you please. You can also make edits to the carbon emissions.

Should your sea route be hard to see because of its color, simply change the color of your route in the card at the bottom of your map.

You can also change the style of your map to make it more suitable for your preferred sea route color. You'll find a tutorial for this in one of our previous guides:

Step 7 (Premium Plan)

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

Simply click on the "Save routes" button at the bottom of the route information card. You can now easily find your way back to it every time you open the sea route calculator.

If you make any edits later on, remember to save them by clicking the same button at the bottom of your sea route calculator.

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