|Sharing & exploring the planet's wild, seldom-seen places
Venturing to the ends of the Earth takes experience—and we have more than 50 years experience turning vacationers into active and engaged explorers. Come aboard and discover a world of adventure travel you never knew existed.
Formed in 2004, the Lindblad-National Geographic alliance encompasses these key elements:
- A fleet of five expedition ships that carry the National Geographic name. These ships often act as a platform for National Geographic experts including photographers, writers, field researchers and film crews to visit field sites with guests in tow. Our ships have also hosted forums around current events and world issues, and carried teachers of geography and other subjects on adventures of a lifetime.
- Every departure aboard a National Geographic-flagged ship provides the services of a Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic certified photo instructor. Our instructors are veteran naturalists and talented photographers, who have completed a certification program created and taught by members of both organizations. These instructors are there to help photo enthusiasts of all skill levels better understand their cameras, and take the best photos of their lives.
- With the help and support of our guests, the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic Joint Fund for conservation and research raises some $750,000 per year to support projects ranging from scholarships for students in the Galapagos Islands, to purchasing tags for scientists studying killer whales in the waters surrounding the Antarctic Peninsula.
