Product Description

Sounds a powerful blast!

The loudest whistle you can buy, even if it's drenched. Special self-draining chambers quickly purge water so it can sound a blast many times louder than U.S. Military whistles. You can even hear it underwater! Plastic construction with easy-to-grip ridges.

    Comments about West Marine Storm Safety Whistle:

    It sounds exactly like every other whistle you have heard, only it's bigger. I really should take this back for a refund. It's a gimmick. I was looking for a small sound producing device to fulfill Coast Guard requirements. I don't think this will fly.

      No reason to buy any other whistle.

      Comments about West Marine Storm Safety Whistle:

      All the lesser whistles brag about how loud they are. Lies! This whistle truely is so loud it hurts my ears to blow it. It would be prudent to wear ear plugs when blowing this whistle. I have tried the others but have finally learned my lesson. This is by far the LOUDEST whistle you can buy for any amount of money.

        Comments about West Marine Storm Safety Whistle:

        We have bought several of these whistles for our River Patrol volunteers. A blast on the whistle is often all it takes to stop silly people doing silly things on the river. It is also a great safety device if one of our volunteers gets into trouble or comes across others that do and needs to summon additional help. The whistle can be heard even above high winds a long way away and will guide help to you.

          Comments about West Marine Storm Safety Whistle:

          It is used of course for raising a ruckus if you go overboard. This will do that and then some. Since it also works underwater, I hope it scares sharks, being that I'd be in the waters off Chatham, MA aka Seal Heaven.
