Costa Rica's Cloud Forest through the Panama Canal

Skip to


From cloud forest and rainforest to pristine bays and eco-rich islands, journey deep into wilderness and private reserves, UNESCO-listed natural wonders, and national parks to unlock the fabled treasures of Costa Rica and Panama. See myriad exotic birds soar over tropical jungles, listen for the screech of howler monkeys, and connect with people who protect a traditional way of life. In addition to active exploration—hiking, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkeling and Zodiac cruising—you'll transit the man-made marvel of the Panama Canal.

Highlights

National Geographic Quest: Designed for Adventure

Built in 2017, National Geographic Quest is ideal for the fast-moving channels and shallow coves of the Pan-American waters. Her design and engineering were informed by our nearly 40 years of experience in the narrow straits of Alaska, the coast of Costa Rica, and into the gray whale nursery lagoons of Baja. 

Examples of features unique to Lindblad Expeditions include twin boarding platforms that enable our team to load two Zodiacs at once, so our guests can get off the ship quickly to take advantage of wildlife sightings and maximize exploring time. She also features a shallow draft, allowing her Captain to navigate the inner reaches and provide more intimate experiences.

Modern, clean-lined, with large expanses of glass to take in the extraordinary views, National Geographic Quest enables guests to see, do, and experience the best of her geographies.
