Their ships are intimately scaled expedition ships that safely venture where larger cruise ships cannot. Their National Geographic vessels are all US registered. Therefore, shipboard employees on those vessels must be able to legally work in the United States.
Facts About Lindblad Expeditions
Lars-Eric Lindblad pioneered expedition travel to Antarctica with his company, Lindblad Travel. In 1969 his company launched Lindblad Explorer, the first private, purpose-built expedition ship. As well as Antarctica, he was also the first to bring civilians to some of the most exotic places including Galápagos, the Amazon, Papua New Guinea, Antarctica, Asia, and more.
The company’s name was changed to Lindblad Expeditions in 2000, and in 2004, Lindblad Expeditions became partners with National Geographic to further inspire the world through expedition travel. The partnership’s educationally oriented voyages allow guests to interact with and learn from leading scientists, naturalists and researchers while discovering natural environments, above and below the sea.
In March 2013, Lindblad acquired Orion Expeditions and then in 2015, Lindblad merged with Capitol Acquisition Corp. II to become a publicly traded company.
