The Discovery is a 33 meter, purpose built catamaran providing 8 queen and 4 twin cabins. Passenger numbers on the Discovery are limited to just 24 people, ensuring everyone can enjoy serenity and privacy together with the excitement and closeness of a true exploration cruise.

All cabins have individual climate control, bathrooms and huge windows which extend along the length of the cabin allowing you to enjoy the scenery in complete privacy.

The dining area, bar and lounge are located on the mid deck which is fitted with floor to ceiling “glass walls” providing a spectacular dinning experience and plenty of space to unwind. Enjoy Panamanian cuisine as we delight you with exquisite indigenous dishes prepared by our talented chef. A BBQ and sun deck are located on the topmost observation deck.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
