Research Vessel Operations

In 2007, Barry A. Vittor & Associates, Inc. completed renovations to the R/V Kimberly Dawn. The 95 ft. research vessel (formerly a commercial shrimper) provides a stable working platform for projects in the Gulf of Mexico. Fitted with modern communications and ample deck gear, the vessel is equipped for a wide range of oceanographic and environmental research. The R/V Kimberly Dawn fuel efficiency makes it economical to operate anywhere in the Gulf of Mexico. Comfortable accommodations and the experienced professional crew makes the R/V Kimberly Dawn an ideal choice for marine research operations.

The Kimberly Dawn is available for charter. Servicing the Gulf of Mexico, the vessel splits time between Lake Charles, LA and Bayou La Batre, AL.
