The Expedition Experience

In a mostly uninhabited archipelago, discover untouched pink sand beaches, deep blue holes, and endangered green sea turtles foraging in the clear, still waters of mangrove-lined creeks. On the islands that are inhabited, goats outnumber people, there are no traffic lights, and locals bonefish from their seats at lunch. Join us aboard National Geographic Sea Lion to explore the remote and wild islands of The Bahamas. 

Land on remote islands, with endangered wildlife and habitat passionately protected by Bahamas National Trust and other local conservation organizations. Encounter nesting boobies, flocks of flamingoes, and schools of blue tangs adding their vibrant colors to pristine coral reefs. Learn about and experience the conservation initiatives by numerous organizations seeking to protect fragile ecosystems throughout the length of the Bahamian archipelago. On an active adventure, encounter wildlife on far-flung islands, learn of Columbus and buccaneers, and relish the stillness of turquoise lagoons and powder-soft beaches where the only footprints will be ours.
