Small Boats

The Naos Island marine laboratory has a fleet of three small boats that are stored on the Naos dock and deployed by crane as needed. These boats support research within a radius of about 100km of the lab, and provide access to an extensive range of marine and shoreline habitats throughout the northern part of the Gulf of Panama, including the entire Pearl Archipelago.

The two smaller boats, a 15ft boston whaler and the 24ft Agujon, also can be taken by trailer to support research in other areas of Panama.
