Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic said it will offer free roundtrip air from Miami or a complimentary two-day extension in Panama City for select Panama and Costa Rica sailings aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion this winter.

The two-day option includes visits to the new Canal Expansion Observation Center for the construction site, and the new Frank Gehry-designed Biodiversity Museum as well as a private dinner at the Atlantic and Pacific Co. restaurant, where guests can observe the daily operations of the canal while dining.

Bookings made by Nov. 30 can choose free air or the extension on some January and February 2016 dates. Bookings on the Nov. 28 or Dec. 12 departures receive a $500 air credit. The offers are subject to availability and are for new bookings only, Lindblad said.

Starting next year, Lindblad will offer standup paddleboarding with equipment stored aboard the ship.

Also, a nine-day Costa Rica land excursion can be booked in conjunction with the cruise. Accommodations include a stay in a rustic lodge at the water's edge and private bungalows, Lindblad said.
