Binoculars for Boating
by: Derek Robinson

If you've ever gone on a dolphin or whale watching excursion, you know it's rare to see the animals up close. Boats are supposed to [] keep a safe distance from wildlife to avoid disturbing them, and sometimes the animals are just frightened away by the sound of a boat's engine, or excited people yelling about seeing a whale or dolphin in the water. You don't want the excursion to be a waste of time or money, especially since those trips can be expensive. The best way to ensure you get to see what you went out there to see is to take some []waterproof binoculars with you.

Any binoculars will work, of course, but out on the ocean, even in a boat, nothing stays completely dry. Waves splash against the boat, the motion of the boat kicks up spray, and if a curious whale or dolphin does approach the boat, you may get sprayed or splashed by them. If you're going to spend money on binoculars, it's best to get a waterproof model to protect your investment.

[] Pentax binoculars have several waterproof models to choose from, so you can find what best suits your needs, and your budget. You can also choose between full size and compact binoculars. Compact are easier to travel with, but full size can also offer longer range views, depending on the model. A little bit of research will help you make the right decision about which binoculars to buy.

Waterproof binoculars are the first choice to take on any boating trip, but you may also consider trying [] image stabilizing binoculars. Even if the boat is stopped on the water, the motion of the waves can make it difficult to focus on any wildlife you may have the opportunity to see. Trying to do so can also increase the possibility of becoming seasick. Image stabilizing binoculars keep the image steady, even when you're moving, so you can keep the object in your field of view, and avoid seasickness.

Perhaps your interest is less in watching marine wildlife, and more in catching it. Whether you're fishing on a lake, or going after big game while deep sea fishing, binoculars can help you find game and keep your bearing while on the water. If you're in a small boat without navigation equipment, binoculars allow you to keep land in your sight so you don't get lost. While fishing, one thing to look for is a group of birds flying and diving over one location. This is an indicator of a school of fish near the surface. Binoculars will help you keep your eye on where the fish are.

When looking for a good set of binoculars to take when you go fishing, one high quality option is [] Tasco binoculars. They offer waterproof models at very affordable prices, without sacrificing any quality. A well-known name for [] more than 50 years, you can be sure that any model you choose will provide clear, sharp images. They even make a model with a built-in compass to help you find your way out on the water.

Whatever your boating purpose, there is no shortage of information to help you find a great pair of binoculars.
