Set off on an all-new expedition cruise aboard Le Dumont-d’Urville into the heart of the lush landscapes and hypnotic shores of Honduras and Belize.

During your odyssey aboard Le Dumont-d’Urville, expect to hear birdsong and see dense tropical forests and the intertwined roots of mangrove burgeoning with life. From Punta Sal, you will explore the Jeannette Kawas National Park, a haven of peace where the forest melts into the sea, allowing you to contemplate unique biodiversity. You will then explore a completely undiscovered island, Guanaja, which is full of treasures. Here you will discover the Caracoles people, who take pride in their traditions, on the small key of Bonacca, also known as The Cay, with its mangroves, tropical rainforests and sandy beaches sheltering rich wildlife.

A little further on, the Bay Islands and the Cayos Cochinos will surprise you with their immense coral reef, where protected access is regulated by a local research foundation. The idyllic shores here are amongst the most beautiful in the Caribbean.

The stunning nature here will reveal itself in the heart of a Caribbean atmosphere imbued with history and tradition. The Garifuna people will welcome you to the small island of Chachauate in the Cayos Cochinos with a unique performance, a visit of their village and the possibility of tasting their singular gastronomy.

Half Moon Caye, the picture postcard view of Belize, is also on the program of this cruise; in this enchanting place, you will see nesting frigatebirds and red-footed boobies up close. The Great Blue Hole cenote, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the world’s most stunning diving sites.
