Lindblad has established a travel niche by taking small groups of active and intellectually curious travelers to rugged and remote locales around the world or by helping passengers find a fresh perspective on already visited areas like the Mediterranean or Caribbean. National Geographic Explorer sails to Antarctica, the Arctic, Europe, South America, Greenland, Iceland and West Africa. National Geographic Islander and National Geographic Endeavour sail the Galapagos Islands. National Geographic Sea Lion and National Geographic Sea Bird spend their summers in Alaska, British Columbia, and the Columbia and Snake Rivers; then the Sea Bird repositions to Baja and the Sea of Cortez for the winter while the Sea Lion goes farther south to Costa Rica and Panama. The latest addition to the fleet, Orion, fills in the South Pacific gap, offering cruises to Papua New Guinea, Australia and Micronesia.
Lindblad's chartered ships take passengers to Greece, Turkey, the Dalmatian Coast, Scotland, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Southern Caribbean, New Zealand and the Upper Amazon.
Some sailings are advertised as photography expeditions, with workshops led by National Geographic photographers. The photo expeditions include sunrise and sunset landings to take advantage of the best lighting, walks devoted to photography, and instruction from leading nature photographers.
