Maritime roaming

Hi, I'm sailing around the pacific on a yacht, can I use my mobile devices with Vodafone maritime roaming? I read the maritime roaming section but find it confusing.

Hi @walkerju

 

If the ship/yacht supports roaming, then yes. This means it's fitted with a satellite to link back to us, and cell transmitters to connect to your phone. 

 

You can check to see if the ship/yacht you're on has this here: http://www.vodafone.co.nz/roaming/maritime-coverage/

 

You can also view the rates there, which can stack up if you're using it a lot. Also, maritime data roaming is being discontinued at the end of the month.
