Pioneering exploration cruising to destinations such as Antarctica, Arctic Svalbard, the Galápagos Islands, Easter Island, the Amazon, Papua New Guinea and the Seychelles, Lindblad set the standard for this type of cruise. A partnership with National Geographic further enhanced their credentials.
These days the cruise line operates a fleet of 10 ships and offers exploration cruises to all seven continents. The ships are scaled expedition ships that can safely navigate places where larger ships are unable to sail, allowing for authentic, close-up experiences in some wonderfully wild and remote places. Nonetheless, these ships maintain a high standard of style and comfort.
They continue to add innovative elements and expand the potential of an exploration cruise; Lindblad were the first to introduce kayaking to the Arctic, Antarctic and Galápagos Island itineraries and also run an unmatched undersea programme and photography classes in conjunction with National Geographic.
The soft expedition style of adventure cruising on very comfortable ships. Established for over 50 Years, Lindblad were the pioneers in taking citizen explorers to many unusual destinations and are experts in their field. They also run some excellent photography themed exploration cruises, and there are expedition leaders and lecturers on every voyage to enable guests to really get the most out of the destinations they are visiting.
