I've been fortunate enough to travel around the world and see a lot of great sites. I've done budget group travel, and I've hoofed it on my own, but have also stayed with the most exclusive 5 Star Inns and tour operators. They all have their place, but for certain destinations -- particularly the arctic, Antarctic, and Galapagos, I would not consider anybody but Lindblad.

Yes there are others that call themselves Expedition ships, but I've been on 5 expeditions now, and I've have dozens of conversations with staff members who've worked for a variety of expedition companies. There's a reason so many of them work their tails off for years to try to get a job with Lindblad.

Will you have a good experience with the lesser-brand expedition ships? Sure. But for all the money you spend to get to these once-in-a-lifetime destinations, you want the best captains and the most aggressive and knowledgeable expedition leaders. Consider this: Your trip with Lindblad might lead to an afternoon spent on the nesting grounds with 200,000 penguins, or a night out hiking on pack ice, or swimming with whale sharks, when other nearby ships didn't want to risk the tricky tides at the nesting grounds, or were instead caught in a storm just a few miles away.

About Lindblad Expeditions

Lindblad Expeditions is an expedition cruise specialist with almost 50 years experience. The company was founded by Antarctic explorer, Lars-Eric Lindblad in 1969, who pioneered leisure travel expedition cruises to places like Antarctica and the Galapagos.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Lindblad is one of the most well-known adventure travel brands in the world, with a rich history of exploring the far corners of the earth. All of their trips have an element of education, such as lectures from naturalists and photographers. In fact, Lindblad has long partnered with National Geographic to provide this enriching, educational aspect to their tours. Although you are on board with a large group, sometimes 100+ people, this is not your typical group tour. Travelers have flexibility and can choose their daily activities based on personal interest. In places like Antarctica, smaller groups form to make landings via a zodiac boat.

Who Travels With Them?

Lindblad attracts a curious, well-educated traveler - someone who wants to truly immerse themselves in nature and their surroundings, versus a more passive traveler. Lindblad travelers have diverse backgrounds such as professional photographers, artists, teachers, and scientists. You can expect your expedition group to be of all ages, although many passengers are 40+.

Where Do They Operate?

Lindblad offers a wide range of tours to classic expedition cruise destinations like the Galapagos, Alaska, and Antarctica as well as non-traditional places like Costa Rica, Panama, and the British Isles. Their fleet of ships numbers 10 in total.

Why Travel With Them?

If you’ve always wanted to explore distant places like Antarctica or tough-to-reach lands like the Galapagos, then Lindblad could be your best bet. They have many years experience fine tuning their hands-on, but comfortable, expeditions to provide a fun, educational experience. This certainly isn’t your classic cruise experience.
