About Marina Carenero

History of Marina Carenero

Marina Carenero was established in 1997 and opened officially for business January 1st, 1998. The original dock was built out of low-cost native materials and was up-graded to marine treated pine poles and decking in 2003-2004.

The marina is located in the cove on Careening Cay (Isla Carenero), a secure 200 meters distance from the town of Bocas. The site is cooled by abundant sea breezes and protected virtually 360 degrees by the surrounding islands. Power, water and phones come from the town of Bocas under the 100 meter wide channel between the islands.

The original concept was to provide a friendly, secure, service oriented center for cruising sailors, based on the cruising experiences of the owner. The scope of services offered are really too numerous to mention, as they include the fulfillment of many personal, and sometimes peculiar requests from absentee boat owners. Essentially, we are here to help the cruising sailor.

The owner, Mary Robertson, has lived in Bocas since 1997. She cruised the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean before moving to Panama. She has raised 2 sons in Bocas, home-schooling them for college in the US.
