USHarbors.com, the leading online resource for tides, weather, and coastal data, announces that co-founder Jamie Bloomquist has acquired full ownership of the company.

With this acquisition, Bloomquist plans to expand the platform's reach and services, further solidifying its position as a go-to digital destination for marine enthusiasts nationwide.

USHarbors.com was established in 2009 to provide comprehensive coastal information, including tide charts, weather forecasts, and local knowledge tailored to the needs of boaters and coastal residents. Over the years, the platform has grown into a trusted resource over 12 million users rely on for accurate and up-to-date coastal information.

Jamie Bloomquist, who created USHarbors with Joshua Moore in 2009, brings a wealth of experience in the marine industry, including his role as National Sales Manager for Back Cove Yachts. His vision for USHarbors.com includes enhancing user experience, expanding partnerships with coastal businesses and organizations, and introducing innovative features to better serve the needs of boaters and coastal communities.

Commenting on the acquisition, Bloomquist said, "I am thrilled to take on this new role and lead USHarbors.com into its next growth phase. We are dedicated to providing valuable tidal data, weather observations and forecasts, and coastal flooding information while fostering connections within coastal communities across the United States and helping our audience of boaters, coastal businesses, travelers, and waterfront homeowners. I look forward to building upon the success of former owner, John Hanson, and continuing to work with USHarbors President Anastasia Fischer to serve our dedicated members."

Under Bloomquist's leadership, USHarbors.com will continue to prioritize its mission of providing essential coastal information while exploring new opportunities for expansion and innovation in the marine industry.
