Lindblad Expeditions is a small ship expedition travel company that works in partnership with National Geographic to inspire people to explore and care about the planet. As pioneers of global exploration, the organizations work in tandem to produce innovative marine expedition programs and to promote conservation and sustainable tourism around the world. The partnership’s educationally oriented voyages allow guests to interact with leading scientists, naturalists and researchers while discovering stunning natural environments, above and below the sea, through state-of-the-art exploration tools.
The company is focused on finding creative ways to explore the places already “discovered” with voyages to some of the most beautiful and fascinating regions on earth. Destinations include Arctic Svalbard, Antarctica, Alaska, Baja California, Central America, Galapagos and beyond.
Venturing to the ends of the earth takes knowledge – and Lindblad Expeditions has more than 50 years’ experience turning vacationers into active and engaged explorers. And, with their history of exploration, they are able to provide insider and many times exclusive access to some of the world’s most interesting places and people. Lindblad Expeditions’ fleet of small expedition ships, Zodiacs, sea kayaks and underwater cameras are all examples of how Lindblad continually strives to help open the eyes of their guests when it comes to truly exploring. They believe that the more their guests connect with these incredible places, the more they will become a force for preserving and protecting them.
This commitment to preserving the world’s beautiful and pristine places has led Lindblad Expeditions to develop robust travel philanthropy programs in Galápagos, Antarctica, Baja California, Alaska and Central America. Together with National Geographic, they have created the LEX/NG Joint Fund for Exploration and Conservation to support initiatives around the world, with a special focus on the regions they explore together; thereby actively impacting the areas they care so deeply about.
