Sail Lindblad Expedition Cruises
In 1979, Sven Lindblad founded Special Expeditions as a division of Lindblad Travel, enabling the company to further its mission of offering innovative and educational travel expeditions that were primarily marine focused.
Offerings expanded to Costa Rica, Baja California, Antactica and beautiful Alaska cruises providing travelers with opportunities to explore, with small ship cruises, the islands, coves and open spaces of the sea that reminded Lindblad of the remote and vast expanse of the Serengetti plains. The company’s name was later changed to Lindblad Expeditions.
Today the company's goal is finding innovative ways to explore the places that have barely been discovered. Their growing fleet of small expedition ships, Zodiacs, sea kayaks, onboard scientists and underwater cameras are all examples of how Lindblad continually strives to help open the eyes of their passengers when it comes to true exploration. They do this because they believe the more their cruise vacation guests become involved with these incredible places, the more they will become a force for preserving and protecting them for future generations.
Under the guidance of experienced naturalists and National Geographic staff who have a great respect for natural and cultural environments, Lindblad Expedition Cruises continues to approach expedition cruise vacation travel as a launch pad for making a difference in one’s life, and around the world.
