Costa Rica and the Panama Canal Photo Expedition

  • 8 day photography expedition in Costa Rica aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion

Ship/Deck Plan


National Geographic Sea Lion

Accommodating just 62 guests in 31 outside cabins, the National Geographic Sea Lion is large enough to operate in remote environments in comfort, yet small enough to enter ports and inlets inaccessible to bigger ships. The ship carries sea kayaks and a fleet of Zodiacs, providing easy access to coastlines and other places of interest. All cabins have windows and are attractively and comfortably furnished with lower berths, private bathrooms, reading lights, and individual climate control. The Sea Lion is authorized to operate in the Tongass National Forest under a Forest Service Special Use Permit.
