From Antarctica to Alaska, our expedition cruises—operated through our alliance with Lindblad Expeditions—bring you to some of the most remote and pristine places on the planet. Traveling aboard the National Geographic-Lindblad fleet, you’ll explore alongside a dynamic expedition team—seasoned photographers, marine biologists, historians, or naturalists, as well as a National Geographic-Lindblad certified photo instructor trained to help you take your best photos. Flexibility is built into each itinerary, so that we can take advantage of wildlife sightings or other spontaneous opportunities that arise. Our nimble expedition ships can navigate narrow waterways and small harbors that larger vessels cannot reach, and they're equipped with exploration tools such as kayaks or paddleboards, snorkeling gear and Zodiacs, hydrophones and underwater cameras, so that you can discover wild places close up.
Our expedition cruises aboard the National Geographic fleet include a broad spectrum of engaging experiences—from whale-watching and exploring pristine islands off Baja California to discovering a dazzling world of ice and penguins in Antarctica. Traveling aboard our fleet, you’ll enjoy the daily thrill of discovery without sacrificing comfort. Each of our ships provides an inviting home base with superior amenities, personalized service, and a vibrant yet casual onboard atmosphere. Step aboard and you’ll find comfortable cabins, a well-stocked library, and dining rooms serving regionally inspired cuisine with fresh, local ingredients. Expansive decks provide an exceptional vantage point for spotting and photographing wildlife—a polar bear lumbering near the ship’s prow in Arctic Norway, or a humpback whale breaching off Alaska's coast. Thanks to a range of exploration tools designed to get you into the field, you’ll see and learn more than you ever imagined. And, after an invigorating day spent on shore with our naturalists, you may find yourself unwinding with a massage in the ship’s spa or enjoying a lively conversation in the lounge with one of our experts.
