MV Discovery is a small but spacious expedition cruise motor yacht with plenty of space to relax and observe.
MV Discovery is a compact motor yacht which provides plenty of space for its guests: a maximum of just 24, cared for by 10 staff and crew including a cruise director and bilingual guides.
The 12 en suite cabins are flooded with light from huge windows which allow you to observe the scenery as you pass by. Whether from your cabin, through the huge glass windows of the observation lounge, the restaurant or the fresh air of the outer sun deck, you will have an unfettered view of the canal walls as you rise and fall with the water; the wildlife clinging to the tropical foliage; palm-studded coral islets and the marine-life: maybe even a whale or two, and for sure plenty of birds.
Your expedition leaders share a love for history and a passion for nature. They will introduce you to native human groups that still preserve their customs and traditions, and to a world of stunning natural beauty and rich history unknown by most. They are experts on their fields and they will make your journey onboard the Discovery an unforgettable experience.
