Scenic Eclipse guests visiting these destinations have easy access to land via a fleet of zodiacs, can explore the coast on paddleboards and kayaks, venture under the surf for up close views of marine life and colorful coral sea beds in the yacht’s six-guest submarine, Scenic Neptune, or soar over the jungles and waters in one of two state-of-the-art, six-guest helicopters.

Guests can enjoy a slew of Caribbean sunsets on the nine-day “Turks & Caicos Islands to Jamaica” sailing, departing Nassau on October 23, 2023.
