Sea transport is provided in Guinea by:
- Société Navale*, a limited liability company partially controlled by the state, operating two coasters
- GUINOMAR, a semi-public company run jointly by Guinea and Norway founded in 1979 for ore shipping (mostly bauxite, alumina and gold)**
- private shipping agencies groupes into the AGEMAP
- small private companies operating coasters.
* Most likely "SNG" (Société Nationale Guinéenne) shown above
** In 1994, bauxite, alumina and gold represented 43.4%, 16.5% and 13.3% of the exports of Guinea, respectively. Production in 1996 was 15,888,600 t of bauxite, 564,237 t of alumina and 7,863 kg of gold. [Encyclopaedia Universalis - Les Chiffres du Monde 1998]
