About Lindblad Expeditions
For over 50 years, Lindblad Expeditions has been turning cruise vacationers into informed and engaged expedition cruise explorers. Together with National Geographic, Lindblad Expeditions offers intimate small-ship expedition cruises. These cruises are your opportunity to encounter the world’s most pristine and inspiring places up close with the seasoned experts who know them best.
The mission statement reads:
Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic have joined forces to further inspire the world through expedition travel. Our collaboration in exploration, research, technology, and conservation provides extraordinary travel experiences and disseminates geographic knowledge around the globe.
Through this alliance, you can travel on a fleet of ships to the planet’s most extraordinary places in the company of world-renowned scientists, naturalists, and researchers, and explore stunning natural environments alongside skilled specialists using state-of-the-art exploration tools.
Lindblad Expedition cruises provide the safest and most innovative ways to explore places already “discovered” and those that are still very, very wild. Whether you choose a Galapagos cruise, an Alaska cruise, a cruise to Egypt, or any of their other cruise destinations, each expedition cruise features an unmatched combination of:
- adventure travel technology
- well-appointed cabins,
- regional and sustainable cuisine; and
- friendly, personal service.
The fleet offers a more than comfortable base for exploring. They are outfitted with cool tools that enable a genuine connection with the destinations and offer inviting private accommodations and gracious public spaces for the expedition community to gather. The Lindblad Expeditions fleet includes:
- National Geographic Orion
- National Geographic Explorer
- National Geographic Endeavour
- National Geographic Islander
- National Geographic Sea Bird
- National Geographic Sea Lion
- Delfin II
- Lord of the Glens

One of Lindblad Expeditions core beliefs is that the more closely its guests are able to connect with a destination, the more valuable an affect it will have on their lives and on how they will come to care about and protect it for future exploration.
