Tropical Waters and Remote Island Communities in the Caribbean

Departure date
11 days

Cruise Overview

Your voyage begins in the city of neon, Miami.

From here, we head south to experience a slice of Mayan heritage before disconnecting from the rest of the world as you encounter island living, vibrant sea life and mesmerising coral reefs. 

Mayan majesty

Belize is home to several historic locations of the ancient Maya empire, but arguably none as popular as Altun Ha, just outside of Belize City. It’s one of the best-restored Mayan ruins, enabling you to get a true sense of the ancient civilisation.

A sea of flora and fauna.

White sandy beaches, densely forested islands and a rich variety of sea life await you. We land at the uninhabited Half-Moon Caye island in the Lighthouse Reef, home to the Blue Hole natural monument. UNESCO’s Seaflower Biosphere Reserve in the waters around Isla Providencia has inspired a nickname: the Sea of Seven Colours. In Bocas del Toro, you may have a few optional excursions to spot the exotic wildlife in the UNESCO-listed National Marine Park here.

Island communities.

One of the perks of an expedition with us is the opportunity to learn about the island communities we’ll be visiting. Through lectures from our expedition team, you’ll learn about their history and society. The warm welcome you’ll receive on Big Corn Island will stay with you, and that’s even before sampling the local food of some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.


We'll help you plan where to go, when to visit and how long to stay
