Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic announced today that it plans to add additional voyages for the 2021 season in Alaska this summer.
Due to strong demand for its Alaska programming, Lindblad will reactivate its two remaining U.S.-flagged vessels and has added an additional 13 departures. The 62-passenger sister ships, National Geographic Sea Bird and National Geographic Sea Lion, will explore Alaska on a series of Wild Escape departures starting June 25 and continuing through August.
The six-day Wild Alaska Escape: Juneau to Ketchikan and Wild Alaska Escape: Sitka to Juneau voyages explore Alaska on an active, exciting expedition to see the region’s iconic wildlife and epic landscapes in the compact time frame of one work week. Guests will hike through forests of towering trees, and kayak long routes deep into glacially carved fjords.
All guests 16 years of age and over will be required to be vaccinated prior to travelling onboard. A complete list of health and safety protocols are listed here. Key components include: negative Covid-19 tests, daily guest temperature checks, and thorough cleaning protocols. From start to finish, guests will travel exclusively with their expedition community.
