We had previously sailed with Lindblad in the Galapagos Islands with our granddaughters and had a wonderful experience. They wanted to go on another expedition, so we chose Lindblad again, this time to Alaska. The trip was great. Our granddaughters particularly enjoyed the Explorers program and the naturalist, Jared, who ran the program. The staff and naturalists on board accommodated us beyond our expectations. Of particular interest were the sea mammals - bubble net feeding Humpback whales, sea lions, seals, sea otters and Orca whales. The American Bald Eagles were a pleasure to watch as well. The scenery was magnificent. Large glaciers caving and wonderful sunrises and sunsets, framed against soaring mountains. Truly an environment which is overpowering. The nature walks with the naturalists educated all of us with respect to the ecosystems of southeast Alaska. We learned about the forests and the muskeg. Now our granddaughters want to travel with Lindblad to the Antarctic.
