The Lindblad expedition ship, the comfortable and intimate National Geographic Sea Bird, can reach places inaccessible to larger ships due to her small size. She accommodates 62 guests in 31 outside cabins. All cabins face outside with windows, private facilities, and climate controls; some also feature doors that open directly onto the deck. The rooms contain all the basic amenities and are a comfortable place to lay your head at the end of a day filled with friends and exploration. The feeling is similar to that of a large, incredibly stable private yacht, with everyone integral to the adventure.
The ship features a restaurant, library, a lounge with full-service bar and facilities for films, slide shows and presentations; an observation deck; a partially-covered sun deck with chairs and tables, and LEXspa. There is guest internet service (for an additional fee).
This is an expedition-style ship, which means it has state-of-the art equipment that will allow us to get up-close-and-personal with the marine mammals we encounter. There’s a bow camera, hydrophone, kayaks, snorkeling gear, Splash-Cam, underwater video camera, video microscope and Zodiac landing craft.
Plus, thanks to the sturdy fleet of Zodiacs and virtually untippable kayaks, you can be off the ship and out exploring within a moment’s notice. Launch your kayak from a picturesque beach, hike with our naturalists into the rain forest or walk easily along a sandy dune. During your time with us, our expedition staff likes nothing better than to surprise and delight you by directing the ship toward breaching whales, bow-riding dolphins or into an alluring cove.
