Once gain, I'm privileged to have been invited by National Geographic Expeditions  to act as trip expert on the company's 8-day "Costa Rica and the Panama Canal" cruise-tours. I'll be escorting the January 23-30 and January 30-February 06, 2010 trips. Please join me!
This will be the second year in a row that I've worked with NGE, and the sixth time I've participated on a similar cruise along this route. The faculty on board the vessel – the 62-passenger 'National Geograpic Sea Lion' – includes biologists and other experts who enhance your learning pleasure.
As you'd imagine, the trips focus on natural history, with daily trips ashore to remote wilderness areas in search of monkeys, sloths, and similar fabulous creatures. There's snorkeling, too, and kayaking around the tiny islands of the Gulf of Panama, as well as the fascinating passage through the Panama Canal. On day trips, we'll go ashore by Zodiak, which grant opportunities to explore remote places few other people get to see.
I invite you to join me on these exciting and intimate cruises.
