The National Geographic-Lindblad fleet
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.
The hallmark of all expeditions with Lindblad is the team of experts that accompanies every trip—seasoned naturalists, undersea specialists, and researchers who share their knowledge and insights with travellers and bring each destination to life. On select voyages, the team will be joined by a National Geographic scientist, historian, photographer, or explorer. In addition, a veteran National Geographic photographer joins every expedition aboard the National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion.
Each ship in the fleet is equipped with the latest innovations in exploration technology, such as bow cameras, remotely operated vehicles, undersea cameras, hydrophones, and video-microscopes—the eyes and ears beneath the waves.
