So you’re cruising around the bay trying to listen to some tunes. Only there’s no cell service, you can’t reach the marina’s wifi, and none of your favorite music is already downloaded on your device!
Thinking about giving up and just singing the “99 bottles” song to avoid the awkward silence? This is exactly the type of situation where a marine wifi extender comes in.
These small yet powerful antennas boost the signal of nearby wifi signals. They make it so can pick up signals from hundreds or even thousands of feet away (depending on the strength of the antenna). While they don’t provide the wifi themselves, they amplify existing signals coming from the coastline.
These wifi extenders can also come in handy if you already have a wifi router or 4G/5G connection on your large sailboat or yacht. Often, the routers themselves aren’t able to provide consistent service across the boat. By installing a marine-grade wifi extender, you’ll ensure reliable service across your boat.
In today’s article, we’ll look at some of the top-rated wifi extenders on the market. We’ll start with the best marine wifi extender, the C Crane Long Range WiFi Repeater. We also include a buyers guide and several other options in this article.
