As pioneers in exploration, Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic share a passion for adventure, discovery, and conservation.
Since 2004, we have sailied extraordinary small-ship voyages to some of the world’s most remote and fascinating places, from the icy wilderness of Antarctica to the dramatic fjords of Alaska’s Inside Passage.
Lindblad Expeditions’ fleet of six expedition ships includes the National Geographic Endeavour; National Geographic Islander; National Geographic Sea Bird; National Geographic Sea Lion; our flagship, the National Geographic Explorer; and the newest ship in our fleet, the state-of-the-art National Geographic Orion. National Geographic Endeavour II will launch in 2017 to be based in the Galapagos Islands.
Lindblad Expeditions have brought expedition travel into the 21st century, navigating distant, unspoiled territory without sacrificing comfort. All of their ships feature comfortable cabins, a lounge, a library, and wellness services so that you can unwind after an active day. Chefs on board create delicious meals that reflect the cuisine of the places we visit using fresh, local, and organic ingredients. On board each ship, you’ll find Zodiac landing craft, sea kayaks, and snorkeling gear, as well as specially designed tools that allow for more extensive exploration.
In addition to the six National Geographic ships in the fleet, Lindblad Expeditions also charter five ships, including riverboats and a tall ship, that are well suited to exploring diverse regions such as the Amazon, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, Scotland, Greece, Turkey, and the Dalmatian Coast.
