Small-Group Travel Experiences: 


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.

Join us to explore the Caribbean coast.

Wondering Who is Pili?

The mission at The Adventures of Pili is to create books and other educational products that increase children’s awareness of global environmental issues and foster multi-lingual literacy. We are on our way to donating 7,000 bilingual books in remote communities.

The Adventures of Pili in Colombia is a fable of love and friendship, a quest for answers to explain why the birds have lost their colors. At once full of radiance and joy, sadness and loss, the book encourages children to embrace conservation, to love nature, and to be kind to the world. Kike Calvo has written a beautiful book destined to be beloved by many.”

New York Times Bestselling Author

“The birds are losing their colors out of sadness because they are losing their homes. A world without colorful birds is a world much less beautiful than the world we were born to. Can Pili find a way to reverse this tragedy, and get the birds’ colors back? There is a way. As you’ll read in this terrific story.”
