Marine binoculars are excellent for applications on or near water such as boating, fishing, or sailing. Due to the close proximity with water, marine binoculars are often rugged and nitrogen-filled or -purged for waterproofing and fogproofing, allowing them to perform well in conditions with varying temperatures and humidity levels.

The most common and popular specification for marine binoculars is 7x50mm the brightest image at a reasonable size - 7x magnification is considered to be the maximum strength that can be handled satisfactorily at sea due to the motion of the boat, whereas 50mm aperture promotes better light gathering. For smaller and lighter binoculars, consider 7x42, 7x35 or 7x26 specifications – these work well in daylight but will be hard in distinguishing objects and colours in poor light conditions.

Think also about the focusing mechanism in your binoculars. Individual focus models where each eye must be focused separately are desirable for marine use as the target is not rapidly changing its proximity. These models are also usually aligned better and have fewer moving parts to fail. Otherwise, focus-free binoculars are excellent for immediate viewing without the need for adjustments.

Some of the marine binoculars on sale with us have unique features such as floatation mechanisms, in-built compass, and image stabilisation as well.
