National Geographic has announced that it is going to offer a voyage expedition to Savannah and starting in April 2022.

The National Geographic excursion “Sailing The Low Country: From Cumberland Island To Charleston” expedition will bring travelers to Savannah during an 8 day excursion along the entire Georgia coast.

The 8 day itinerary starts in Fernandina Beach, Florida, and day two takes travelers to Savannah to enjoy “exploring Savannah on foot, starting off with a stroll among the Spanish moss-draped trees of Forsyth Park, the First African Baptist Church – the oldest African-American congregation in the country – founded in 1773, several Savannah squares including Greene Square, named for Revolutionary War hero Nathaniel Green, where the Emancipation Proclamation was read and soon-to-be freed slaves were promised 40 acres and a mule,” National Geographic’s Beaufort Itinerary said.

Other amazing stops on the way to and from Savannah are Cumberland Island, Jekyll Island, Sapelo and Ossabaw Islands, then on to Daufuskie Island, SC and ending in Charleston, SC.

The excursion is currently booking now. The price? Starting at a cool $5,590 per person.

The “voyages”, as National Geographic calls them, are aboard the National Geographic ship Sea Lion. Accommodating just 62 guests in 31 outside cabins, the National Geographic Sea Lion is large enough to operate in remote environments in comfort, yet small enough to enter ports and inlets inaccessible to bigger ships. The ship carries sea kayaks and a fleet of expedition landing crafts, providing easy access to coastlines and other places of interest.
