Lindblad Expeditions


A National Geographic Society partner

Board Lindblad's newest ship, the National Geographic Explorer, for the ultimate aquatic learning experience. With features like a remotely operated vehicle (to beam back images of sea life up to 1,000 feet below the surface) and a glassed-in observation lounge, the 81-cabin vessel makes an ideal classroom for a staff compiled of scientists, naturalists, researchers, and conservationists to teach guests about their surroundings. This year's expeditions range from a leisurely cruise along western Europe to a 28-day voyage from Argentina to Africa.
