This is a Small Ship 62 People. When National Geographic and Linblad team up is is superb. The ship is outfitted very well and the entire team, the naturalists, photographers, sea life divers were informative, fun and cared about how you enjoyed your experience. This was a fun expedition in Southeast Alaska. The Captain, Crew and Chef were first Class, the food was extraordinary. If Sherry B is a tour guide she is the best.
Well worth the extra $ to see and experience what we did. We saw it all Glaciers, 50 or so Orcas, up close. Humpbacks, Eagles Grizzly bears and cubs. Sea Otters all kinds of Birds including ruffled Puffin. Icebergs a plenty! Just special. Undersea life. We hiked, Sea KAYAKED and learned about the Flora and Fauna. Glacier National Park was spectacular. Getting in the expedition zodiac boats and see Glaciers up close and personal and icebergs you could touch was special. Spectacular waterfalls that seemed to come to the boat. We met a native american Interpreter that was outstanding Mr George. Yes and I did a polar plunge!
