Since 1979, Lindblad has been taking travelers on special innovative and educational travel expeditions on small ship cruises. Today, the company has
joined forces with National Geographic and takes guests to some of the most beautiful and fascinating places on Earth.
All ship and hotel accommodations where applicable, all meals aboard ship and most meals ashore except when an itinerary provides an "at your leisure" morning, afternoon
or evening. All non-alcoholic beverages aboard ship, tips, taxes, port charges and service charges (gratuities to ship's crew at your own discretion),
all shore excursions and sightseeing, entrance fees, special access permits, transfers to and from group flights, use of kayaks, snorkeling gear and
Zodiac excursions and services of their Expedition Team and special National Geographic Guest Speakers.
Lindblad offers small ship expeditions to Africa, Alaska, the Amazon, Antarctica, Arctic, Costa Rica and Panama, Egypt, Europe, Galápagos, Mediterranean,
New Zealand, South America, and more.
Lindblad maintains a fleet of innovative and comfortable expedition ships. National Geographic Explorer is a state-of-the-art expedition ship, and the
newest addition to the Lindblad fleet. It is a fully stabilized, ice-class vessel, enabling it to navigate polar passages while providing exceptional
comfort. Their twin expedition ships, National Geographic Sea Bird and National Geographic Sea Lion, can reach places inaccessible to larger ships
due to their small size, yet each comfortably accommodates 62 guests in 31 outside cabins.
Full buffet breakfasts, casual lunches, and leisurely dinners are served in their comfortable dining rooms, on deck or even ashore on a remote
beach. Entertainment onboard stems from the day's explorations: films and informal talks about the destination, videos from the day's undersea
explorations, perhaps a performance by local dancers or musicians-and plenty of laughter.
Zodiacs, sea kayaks, onboard Naturalists and underwater cameras are all examples of how Lindblad continually strives to help open the eyes of our
guests when it comes to truly exploring.
