R/V Point Lobos departs

For over 20 years, the Point Lobos was MBARI's workhorse research vessel, ferrying the ROV Ventana out of Moss Landing Harbor several times a week. During a remarkable 3,697 cruises, the Point Lobos helped researchers record thousands of hours of video, identify dozens of strange and unusual animals, and deploy hundreds of instruments in the depths of Monterey Bay. The Point Lobos was retired in December 2011. Photo by John Ferreira
