Tahoe City, CA, Oct 31, 2012 â Small ship cruise expert AdventureSmith Explorations (http://www.
adventuresmithexplorations.com/), the active travel company securing matches between adventure-seeking clients and a treasure trove of expedition ships, reports savings on a handful of close-to-home, sun-drenched cruises.
âShort flights from Canada and the US to such cruise destinations as Hawaii, Baja and Belize mean more ship-and-shore time,â said Todd Smith, AdventureSmith founder and director. âPlus, while North America is locked in a deep chill, it's nice to escape to the sun-drenched tropics!â
Three mid-winter departures of an 8-day Costa Rica & Panama Canal adventure aboard the 62-passenger Sea Lion come with a free pre or post cruise extension to the Monteverde Cloud Forest or $500 off the expedition cost that starts at $4,980 per person, double occupancy. The dates for this promotion are Dec. 1-8, Dec. 15-22 and Jan. 5-12, 2013 (note: cruises depart weekly from mid-November through early April).
In both countries guests walk rain forest trails in national parks and wildlife reserves, swim, snorkel and kayak Panama's famed Isla Coiba, horseback ride, learn the lore of the canal and visit Barro Colorado with scientist escorts from the Smithsonian Research Station.
