San Blas Islands, Panama
Spend the day relaxing in this beautiful archipelago surrounded by clear water and coral reefs swarming with marine life, pristine sandy beaches and coconut palms.
One of life’s great experiences is to transit the Panama Canal, one of the world’s key strategic artificial waterways. From Gatun Lake to the Pacific Ocean, the full day journey through the Isthmus of Panama is 65 kilometres long and will take you through three locks where Scenic Eclipse will descend 27 metres. Enjoy this experience from any vantage point on board Scenic Eclipse; from one of the viewing decks to the privacy of your suite’s verandah, it is sure to be a memorable experience.
Darién National Park
World Heritage-listed Darién National Park is only accessible by water on a small ship. A natural bridge spanning the two Americas, it houses a myriad of habitats, ranging from rocky coastlines to sandy beaches and mangroves, and is one of the few remaining examples in the world of a protected area inhabited by humans.
Utria National Park, Colombia
Located off the coast of Colombia, this tiny World Heritage-listed atoll has been transformed from a former island prison to a wildlife sanctuary. Onshore you will discover monkeys, caimans, a myriad of bird species including the blue-footed booby, the magnificent frigate birds and the endemic blue anole, the world’s only pure blue lizard. The deep blue waters and coral reefs around the island host an abundance of marine life, from inquisitive dolphins and porpoises to the majestic sperm whales.
