National Geographic Sea Bird for Families
Sea Bird might not have facilities especially for kids or an official program, but kids are welcome onboard and catered to when possible. Children younger than 18 receive $500 off their fares. Summer trips see an especially high number of families, as the Alaska and Baja expeditions make great multigenerational trips. On sailings with at least five kids onboard, Lindblad staff will arrange for kid-friendly events, such as pizza-and-movie nights when the kids dine on pizza and watch films in the lounge while their parents enjoy adult conversation in the main dining room. The crew will also offer kids-only Zodiac trips and make sure the kids are in the first boat out when whales are sighted.
Lindblad has no minimum age to sail and does have a portable crib for infants and toddlers to sleep in onboard (or use as a playpen on the beach). Pregnant women should consult with their doctors before sailing.
