Red Frog Beach Marina – Panama
Red Frog Beach Marina in Panama provides
safe and comfortable dock access surrounded
by beautiful and entertaining amenities
By Christine Carpenter
Nestled in a bay among the Isla Bastimentos, Bocas del Toro, Panama, Red Frog Beach Marina allows marine-goers of all kinds to enjoy luxurious accommodations in a safe harbor. Recently expanded in 2011, Red Frog Beach Marina’s 1000′ of face docks can accommodate yachts of up to 250 feet with an additional 32 x 40′ and 32 x 50′ slips. “Red Frog Marina is the most modern, clean marina and the safest in the region. It is strikingly beautiful with the surrounding natural protected mangroves,” says Managing Partner, Boris Kushnir.
Their unique location on the Caribbean side of Panama allows for beautiful scenery as well as a lengthy list of activities and amenities. Fishing, sailing, SCUBA, snorkeling, and soft, sandy beaches beckon the water-enthusiasts, while bird watching, hiking, canopy zip-lining, horseback riding, and chocolate farm tours allow for delightful experiences unique to this region. During a number of these explorations, don’t be surprised if you spot a monkey, sloth or other exotic animal that call Panama its home. If you opt to spend your docked days in a more luxurious, leisurely way, you can enjoy the modern bathhouse, villas, spa, and on-sight restaurant and bar. Or, if you prefer, take their complimentary 10-minute water taxi to the vibrant Caribbean town to shop, dine, and escape into the lively culture.
In addition to their picturesque location, luxurious amenities, and fascinating activities, their marina also offers extreme convenience to yachtsmen. “In addition to our normal 110/220 volt, 50 and 100-amp single-phase electric service, we also have 480 volt, 200-amp three-phase service for mega yachts. We have a very modern fuel dock with clean fuel- both diesel and gasoline,” boasts Kushnir. Along with drinkable dockside water, Red Frog Beach Marina has every modern access that make boating stress-free.
Approximately 25 miles from the Costa Rica border and 133 nautical miles from the Panama Canal, Red Frog Beach Marina is a true yachting oasis on the edge of the rain forest with deep water access throughout, easy fueling, provisioning and food/beverage service. Safe, clean, modern, and convenient- all words that marine travelers love to hear accompany their docking experience; paired with a myriad of luxurious resort amenities, exciting outdoor adventures, and sandy beaches in a secluded Caribbean bay – that sounds like a place worth exploring.
