Lindblad Expeditions

Overview of Lindblad Expeditions

    A Lindblad-National Geographic expedition is arguably the most exhilarating overseas adventure travel experience a person can have. Nothing else comes close to approximating its authenticity and all-five-senses engagement. We offer you the world’s ultimate, authentic expedition experience: Discover the planet’s most remarkable places, accompanied by experts able to illuminate all you see, and with cool tools to use to explore up close and personally.

    Expeditions are extraordinary experiences—designed with curious, intelligent people in mind. There are opportunities:

  • To go to the planet’s exceptional places, many of which are either otherwise inaccessible (e.g. Antarctica) or best accessed by a ship (e.g. Galápagos, Alaska, Baja’s Sea of Cortez, Costa Rica & Panama, to name only a few)
  • To have privileged, personal encounters with the world’s wonders
  • To travel accompanied by veteran expedition teams with the expertise to ensure you see all the facets, and contribute insight along the way
  • To share the experience with like-minded others
  • To have incredible stories to share, a priceless stock of memories, and perhaps, even the best photos of your life
  • Lindblad-National Geographic believes that travelers don’t want to be passive tourists, so their expeditions foster active engagement. Their ships are equipped with tools for exploration—to get you out there for up-close forays, or to let you see deeper into the marine or terrestrial environments surrounding you. You will see and do things that are cool. Watching killer whales circle a seal on an ice flow, devising hunting strategies before your eyes is cool. As is having a marine biologist with you when it happens. Having a gray whale calf surface alongside your Zodiac is cool. A superb expedition team greatly adds to your understanding and appreciation — through dedicated looking to make sure you miss nothing (finding Arctic polar bears against white ice isn’t easy; knowing where whales are congregating takes insider knowledge of Alaska). Providing insightful commentary on all you see. And giving engaging presentations that weave the expedition into a cohesive narrative for you.

    Lindblad-National Geographic fleet consists of nimble, intimately-scaled expedition ships, able to safely venture where larger cruise ships cannot, allowing us to offer authentic, up-close experiences in the planet’s wild, remote places and capitals of culture. More than comfortable as your base for exploring, our National Geographic cruise ships are outfitted with cool tools that enable a genuine connection with the places we visit, and offer inviting private accommodations, and gracious public spaces for our expedition community to gather.

    You can dine with whom you wish. Share a drink with anyone from a naturalist to the guest speaker on board. Hole up in the library with a good book or participate in collective sociability when the mood strikes. Many friendships are sparked aboard Lindblad ships. And families traveling together reaffirm bonds in revitalizing ways. Whether you’re planning to travel independently, share the experience with your spouse, significant other, friends, or bring the whole clan to celebrate a landmark event, an expedition with Lindblad-National Geographic will exceed your expectations, and change the way you see the world. It might even change your life.
