AdventureSmith Explorations, the international experts in small ship expedition cruising, announce availability over Christmas and New Years on expedition ships exploring the ideal holiday destinations of Baja, Hawaii and Costa Rica that are easy to access by air from North America.
Reservations made by July 31, 2019, for a December 2019 holiday cruise into lands of sunshine and warm waters can mean savings of up to $500 per person.
The crews on these cruises will assure that these holiday departures reflect the season with festivities and celebrations on board the ships, and the destinations take care of themselves when it comes to remote, scenic coastlines that can only be accessed by water.

On land locals reveal through demonstrations and old-fashioned chatter the charm of a still-intact culture, and wilderness preserves display a flora and fauna washed by waterfalls and rainbows.

When away from the ship guests may travel by motorized dugout canoe to meet the local Emberá people and learn from the indigenous culture of the Guna Indians, hike the magnificent Darién Jungle in search of wildlife, search for unique marine life in the Gulf of Panama, stroll a private butterfly- and flower-rich tropical preserve and marvel at the engineering feat that is the 48-mile-long Panama Canal. Along remote shorelines kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and snorkeling bring guests almost nose-to-nose with marine and land wildlife including blue morpho butterflies, exotic birds and howler and spider monkeys, to name a few.
