Aerial Images of Open Hatch Handysize Dry Bulk Carrier MV ‘Atlantic Oasis’
33,472 DWT, built 2011 at Shin Kurushima, Japan
Unloading Wheat in the Port of Manta, Ecuador
On September 3rd, 2015, we visited the Port of Manta and took pictures of the open-hatch handysize vessel MV ‘ATLANTIC OASIS’ discharging wheat. The following day we were fortunate to be given a helicopter tour of the City and Port of Manta, courtesy of Ariel Tours, when we had the opportunity to take aerial pictures of the vessel while still discharging wheat. Amazing detail a bird’s eye-view can provide!
We are thankful to the Department of Tourism of Ecuador, the Port of Manta and the authorities of the City of Manta, and, of course, to Ariel Travel for the helicopter tour, one of the many features they can provide to make any excursion and travel to Ecuador stand out! Gracias!
