Welcome to Reliable Marine WiFi!

Want to connect to hotspots one or two nautical miles distant?* Support multiple devices connecting to a single hotspot? Avoid dropped connections because of short periods of inactivity?

Designed not just for performance, but also for long term reliability, the Coastal Marine WiFi system has the power and sensitivity to effectively bring that far away remote WiFi hotspot right to your boat.

Increased Range: Custom designed system using the market leader in WiFi radios (Ubiquiti Bullet with 600 mW output power) directly coupled to a 8 dBi Marine WiFi antenna. No coax cable is needed, which helps ensure both maximum receiver sensitivity and maximum transmit power allowed by the FCC.

Connectivity: Too often mobile devices don't have the range to work effectively in a marine environment. Our system includes a local WiFi access point that, once connected to the public hotspot via the WiFi radio, will allow all of your multiple mobile devices to connect and utilize WiFi. The WiFi radio power and receiver sensitivity far exceeds that available with mobile devices.

Waterproof: Although the WiFi radio is weatherproof, we developed a waterproof enclosure for it to ensure long term reliability. The enclosure also provides a mounting for the antenna, and is designed to screw directly onto a standard 1"-14 antenna mount. Use of custom PVC parts eliminates potential for corrosion. No tools required except for a small screwdriver!

Easy to Install: This system provides everything you need for installation except for the antenna mount. It has just 7 components designed to be easily connected (view standard system here), making the installation quick and simple. And all systems are provided completely pre-configured; no software installation or additional configuration is required.

Ease Of Use: Unique to Coastal Marine WiFi:  Free Android/iOS and Windows apps make scanning for, selecting and connecting to a public hotspot really easy! No need to struggle with a highly technical website using a smartphone browser.

All apps share common functionality:
  • automatically log onto the WiFi radio;
  • automatically scan for hotspots, ignoring those that have no name and ignoring your own local access point on the vessel;
  • once a hotspot is selected, will connect automatically if no security information is required, else prompt you to enter in the hotspot's security information, and then connect automatically.
  • when connected, will continually check that the connection is good and indicate if you also have internet access.
Other features include:
  • scanned hotspots can be sorted by signal strength, name or security.
  • security information entered to connect to a hotspot is remembered for the next time you log onto that hotspot
  • when connected to a very strong hotspot, transmit power is reduced to avoid interfering with other WiFi systems as well as the hotspot itself.
*Distance depends on conditions, line of sight etc. Actual testing has demonstrated over 2 nm 'line of sight' connectivity from Sidney Spit to free Sidney Wireless
