Caribbean Expeditions

A view of the ship Sea Cloud from a local town in the Caribbean

Bursting with biodiversity and home to a rich mix of cultures, the Caribbean has much to offer beyond its popular ports. Take the route less traveled through this idyllic region, sailing to remote islands aboard the historic square-rigger Sea Cloud, or exploring Panama and Colombia’s Caribbean shores aboard the National Geographic Quest. Encounter an array of wonders—from towering volcanoes to lush rainforest—on islands like Dominica and St. Lucia, and dive into the turquoise seas of Guna Yala, Bequia, and more for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Guided by our veteran expedition staff, we also explore the area’s vibrant cultural melting pot in bustling cities from Cartagena to Portobelo.  

Sailing aboard Sea Cloud is always extraordinary, but experiencing her—the most beautiful yacht in the harbor—in the Caribbean is quintessential.

Many are veteran guides who have exclusively worked with us for decades, chosen for their extensive knowledge of subjects like wildlife biology, Caribbean history, and photography. Exploring in small groups, you’ll hear different perspectives each day of your voyage, and because there are no assigned groups you can gravitate toward the experts who share your interests and inspire your curiosity.
