This is not your average Panama Canal transit. It's not a transit at all. Aboard the Discovery, 24 passengers enjoy serenity and privacy, together with the excitement and closeness of a true exploration cruise. Imagine kayaking and snorkeling in the area of the Panama Canal. Meeting indigenous groups and exploring the forest around you. A journey on the Discovery is a feast of intense, sensory experiences: the aroma of remote places, the texture of unknown things, the multicolor tapestry of nature, the accent of unheard languages, and the exquisite flavour of what has never before been tasted.
Darien Jungle- meet the local Embera Natives and let them show you their carving and basketry. Snorkel and swim, explore the deserted beaches. Transit the Panama Canal! Explore Gatun Lake and it's wildlife. Explore Fort San Lorenzo.
The Discovery is 33 metres in length, a purpose built catamaran with 8 queen and 4 twin cabins. All cabins have individual climate control, en suite bathrooms and huge windows.
