  • History of the Panga

    The Panga Mystique

    "From Cancun water taxis to Sudan fishermen, mariners the world over recognize the seaworthiness and versatility of the Panga. Pangas are the world's most utilized small boat design... Panga skiffs have a deep history spanning from the smallest fishing villages to multi-national corporations and international banks. The original design started around the large bow intended as a platform from which to cast nets into the water. The large flare also meant that in challenging conditions the boat remains dry, comfortable and safe. Pangas continue to be used almost exclusively by Latin American guides for charter fishing, touring, diving and commercial use." quoted from

Whats the name mean?

The name is from the bible and the work that God did on the 5th day of creation:

Then God said, �Let the water swarm with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.� So God created the large sea-creatures and every living creature that moves and swarms in the water, according to their kinds. He also created every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. So God blessed them, �Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.� Evening came and then morning: the fifth day.
Genesis 1:20-23

Therefore an adventure in the 5th day of creation or 5th day adventures.
