With prices for satellite phones starting from £375 and pay as you go airtime from £0.60 per minute, keeping in touch via satellite is now a more affordable option for those at sea. Pay as you go airtime options also offer flexibility meaning that you aren't paying a monthly contract for phones when you aren't using them.
We also offer satellite broadband terminals capable of browsing the web and satellite tracking devices allowing friends and family back home to follow your journey.
If you don't want to make an investment in a satellite phone you could consider renting. Phones are available at just £5/day and with a minimum of 7 days rental this is a flexible option for short trips.
We recognise that people have different requirements for their satellite communications solutions and would be pleased to advise on the perfect solution for you.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you require further advice.
If you simply want the ability to make and receive phone calls at sea see our range of portable satellite phones.
Call charges have dropped in the past few years meaning you can make calls from around £0.60 per minute on a pay as you go tariff.
Satellite phones are also capable of making data connections with your laptop which although they are slow are capable enough to download GRIB files.
Internet via Satellite
If you need faster data we offer a range of compact antennas and terminals designed specifically to deliver reliable maritime communications. They allow you to keep in touch with shore-based networks via internet and telephone, whatever the conditions, from almost anywhere in the world.
Equipment capable of providing satellite broadband for maritime use generally consists of a dome shaped antenna which is attached to a permanent external structure on the vessel. Additionally, a below deck unit is provided to enable voice and data connectivity.
Simply want your friends and family to follow your voyage? Why not look at a satellite tracking device which will automatically transmit your co-ordinates viewable via email, text and internet.
Short-term requirement? Why not rent?
We offer both satellite phones and terminals for rental and with prices from just £5 per day and a minimum term of just 7 days rental could be the solution for you.
