It is always fun to meet boaters and to hear their stories. The winners of the inReach® Mini from Garmin®, Art and his wife Trish,  love to cruise the San Juan and Gulf Islands with their Fisher 30 motorsailer. They have big plans to sail to further remote places such as the West Coast of Vancouver Island and also a trip to Southeast Alaska. The addition of the inReach® Mini from Garmin® will greatly improve their communication connection while in the most remote reaches of these trips.

InReach Mini

The inReach Mini is a smaller and more compact satellite communicator with available two-way messaging and a 24/7 SOS function when combined with an inReach subscription to access the Iridium® satellite network. Measuring just under 4 inches tall by 2 inches wide, and weighing 3.5 ounces, the inReach Mini can easily be carried in a backpack, boat, plane, or glovebox. No more worrying about spotty coverage or being within range of a cell tower – the inReach Mini works anywhere when using the Iridium satellite network.
