What our customers are saying

Finding the item to order (the spice kit) was simple and quick. Ditto for placing the order. I’m getting status emails…This is how online shopping should be. I’ve been dealing with Celestaire for years. Online Celestaire is as enjoyable as when buying things at the boat show. Just no chance for a quick chat with Ken.

EZ to navigate website. Excellent products for navigation. Competitive prices. Might not be the very cheapest, but service is excellent! I highly recommend Celestaire.

Online ordering was easy. One of the items was backordered and I received an email from the owner explaining that there would be a delay in order fulfillment. It was nice to get a personal note!

Many marine stores carry navigation equipment such as compasses, charts, GPS devices etc. but if you want to get good advice from people who are in the real business of navigation equipment, stock an amazing variety, and know from experience what are the best choices – go to Celestaire. Their prices are competitive, outstanding service and they have the widest choice in equipment, reference material and just fun stuff.
I have been buying from them for more than 15 years – sextants (2), pelorus (1), yearly almanacs, various fun references, plotting and drafting supplies. They cant’ be beat.
