DEAR MEMBERS,
Discover the tropical wonders of Belize on a voyage exploring the full length of the Belize Barrier Reef—once endangered but now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Since the days of the ancient Maya, who flourished along this coast some 1,500 years ago, civilization has had relatively little impact. Much of the region remains genuine wilderness, with large expanses of dense tropical forest, miles of wild rivers, abundant birdlife—and the largest coral reef in North America.

Belize expedition 2021

Few cruise lines venture here and National Geographic Sea Lion is the perfect platform for exploring. Using a fleet of Zodiacs, kayaks, and paddleboards, you’ll explore crystalline waters and land on isolated cayes. The snorkeling is immensely satisfying, and your ship is equipped with all the gear you need. And for those who want to and are certified to scuba dive, excursions can be arranged to fit seamlessly with our itinerary.

Cruise coastal rivers in Zodiacs, and explore the lush jungle on foot, tackling trails with an expert naturalist who will point out colorful birds, tree frogs, monkeys, and other wildlife. At Mayflower-Bocawina National Park, learn about ongoing research into the behaviors of Belize's jaguars from scientists and researchers.

Make the most of your trip with a land extension venturing into the rainforest to the ancient ruins of Tikal, once the hub of Maya civilization. Walk among incredibly well-preserved stone temples, palaces, and ceremonial structures, delving deep into its culture and mystery. And discover seldom-visited Yaxhá, the third largest ruins of the Maya world.

Choose between two exciting itineraries: a 6-day voyage to Belize, exploring its wildlife, reefs, and rivers or a 9-day sea and land expedition combining Belize with the famous Maya ruins in Tikal. I hope you will decide to join us. To reserve your space, please send in the reservation form or call
800-252-4910.
