Lindblad Expeditions

Lindblad Expeditions

Description:

Since 1979, Lindblad Expeditions has provided an alternative way to explore the world. Although each expedition is different, there are some elements that are common to all of them: they are designed to take you to places of natural beauty and compelling history, avoiding crowded tourist stops to actively experience beauty, wilderness and the seldom-seen. While the destinations may be adventurous, guests enjoy comfortable accommodations, fine food and service. An enthusiastic staff of naturalists and historians, National Geographic photographers, and Lindblad-National Geographic certified photographers are on hand to share their knowledge and inspire you. Drawn from the top tiers of journalism, science, and world affairs, the speakers in our Global Perspectives program add an extra layer of insight  to the expertise our expedition team and National Geographic photographers provide. Available exclusively aboard National Geographic Explorer, our program enables guests’ to travel with fascinating people that they might have seen in the news, on television, or in a lecture hall – now easily available to them in person, in the intimate and conversational context of an expedition. You’ll experience the sheer joy of traveling to new, exciting places with a small group of like-minded people, in an informal atmosphere. Spontaneity and flexibility are hallmarks of Lindblad’s expedition style, so you’ll always experience the wonders of the unplanned events nature provides along the way, from breaching whales, to an inspection of the ship by a curious young polar bear.

Inspired by Jacques Cousteau, Sylvia Earle, Bob Ballard  and other National Geographic explorers, Lindblad ships travel with undersea specialists who dive to video and reveal the undersea – then displayed in the warmth of the ship’s lounge in vivid HD with interesting commentary by the specialist. The footage may be of marine life few scientists, or human eyes for that matter, have ever seen.
