Lindblad Expedition Cruises

Find an Expedition Cruise

Founded in 1979, Lindblad Expeditions pairs adventure travel with environmental education to create unique vacation experiences. Lindblad's fleet of small ships and innovative Zodiac landing craft allow easy access to distinctive destinations around the globe, with vessels traveling to out-of-the-way places that larger cruise ships can't reach.

The travel style and onboard atmosphere is informal, and itineraries are unhurried and flexible -- if you encounter a school of dolphins while sailing, for instance, the captain might stop the ship for a moment. Daily excursions include short walks, longer hikes, bird-watching, snorkeling, scuba diving, beachcombing and kayaking.

Small, intimate groups of travelers are a key component of any Lindblad trip, with groups ranging from 30 to 110 guests. Lindblad expeditions are all-inclusive and include port charges, shore excursions and most meals and gratuities.

In addition to its expedition leaders, Lindblad employs cultural experts, historians and naturalists. Academic lectures, cultural presentations and lively group discussions provide enrichment and entertainment, and each day ends with Lindblad's popular "recap" meeting, allowing travelers to meet with expedition experts, share daily discoveries and compare wildlife photos.

Conservation is a hallmark of every Lindblad vacation. The company seeks to limit the traveler's impact on the environment and has teamed with conservation leaders like the Marine Stewardship Council, the National Geographic Society and the World Wildlife Fund to preserve sensitive ecological areas visited by Lindblad guests.
