VHF marine radios are a must for any boating enthusiast. Not only can they be invaluable while on the water and in a life-threatening emergency, but they can also help relay to you important information about boating and weather conditions, such as storm warnings from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA). There are several high-quality VHF marine radios on the market today.

Midland Radio Nautico 1

The Midland Nautico 1 is at top of the list of best VHF marine radios for three main reasons: functionality, quality and price. This 88-channel, hand-held two-way radio has a range of 18 miles and includes NOAA severe weather alert notifications. Using NiMH rechargeable batteries, or 4 AA batteries, the Nautico 1 will be ready when you need it. This very affordable marine radio is perfect for kayakers, canoers or any other boating enthusiast who will appreciate the convenience of a hand-held model. A large, backlit display, three call tones, DC adaptor for charging on the boat and a waterproof bag are all standard.
