Mar del Plata (S/F)

The Mar del Plata (Spanish for “sea of silver”) was a barge owned and operated by Carlos. Carlos was hired to transport Dr. Ian Malcolm, Eddie Carr and Nick van Owen and their equipment to Isla Sorna, dropping them off at a river before dropping anchor offshore because of stories about fishermen approaching the island and never being seen again. Carlos, however was very strict about his desire to not stick around long, pledging to return to the mainland if no contact was made. The ship planned for the team’s extraction from Sorna after their mission was complete, but since their satellite phone was destroyed during the attack on the trailers, there was no way for them to contact the Mar del Plata and–thus–the captain eventually left.
