From the tropical rainforests to isolated beaches, from remote Native villages to the Panama Canal, this is a cruise for marine animal and wildlife enthusiasts.
Nearly every day of your cruise, small excursion craft allow you to explore forest-lined rivers, tiny islets, and bird rookeries on seaside cliffs - or, to just poke around the next headland to see what's there. Visit Corcovado National Park, where liana-draped trees roost nearly 300 species of birds, Isla de Coiba, where you'll snorkel with sea turtles and puffer fish and Golfo Dulce with mangrove forests and the beautiful gardens at Orchid House. Transit the most exciting passage of the Panama Canal and visit a remote Embera village tucked away on the coast of the Darien Jungle. Also included is a visit to Manuel Antonio National Park where you'll delight in exploring long strands of magnificent beach backed by a jungle full of monkeys agoutis, three-toed sloths and the rare white ibis.
