ABOARD NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC QUEST
COLOMBIA: EXPLORING THE CARIBBEAN COAST
October 30-November 6, 2021
DEAR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS,
Few travelers have explored the marvel of the Panama Canal in its
entirety, taking in rich green shores by day and watching light-dotted
ships sail through the night. On the 50-cabin National Geographic Quest,
you’ll not only transit the canal, you’ll explore beyond it, to discover the
Caribbean coasts of Panama and Colombia over the course of eight days.
You’ll discover these two countries as an active explorer, not a tourist.
You’ll learn the history of the canal, one of the seven wonders of the
modern world. The canal bisects a wealth of natural treasures: the
tropical paradise of Panama, and the vibrant natural and cultural history
of Colombia. As you alight on the shores of Portobelo or cruise by boat
through the backwaters of Cispatá Bay, watch in awe as a kaleidoscope
of parrots fly overhead while wading birds hunt the mangrove-lined
channels. You’ll journey deep into secluded islands and riverside towns,
where you’ll meet fascinating local populations as they preserve and
celebrate Colombia’s legendary beauty.
The National Geographic Quest is outfitted with Zodiacs, kayaks,
snorkeling gear, and stand-up paddleboards, offering you myriad
delightful ways to witness the Caribbean’s marine life. The ship’s
expedition team of naturalists will ensure you don’t miss the plethora of
mammals, birds, and insects hidden in the dense forest canopy, while the
certified photo instructor will help you capture your best shots ever.
Few have gone where you will go and explored the abundance of this
Caribbean coast the way you will on this expedition. I invite you to join
us October 30-November 6, 2021. To make your reservation, please return the
enclosed reservation form or call 800-252-4910.
