Unique, immersive style of travel
Exploring Southeast Alaska on our expeditions is an unrivalled experience, and your guarantee of an in-depth encounter with all its wonders. Our 62-guest twin expedition ships are fully equipped with tools for exploration that will enable you to:

  • See more of the region’s landscapes and habitats
  • Encounter incredible and varied wildlife
  • See the Alaska undersea through live video
  • Benefit from our 30+ years of experience and relationships in Alaska to see all you came for and more

Every day is active and engaging 
You’ll have the opportunity to hike over spongy earth on trails used by bears for centuries or along boardwalks built over bogs and winding through forests. You’ll take expedition landing craft past floating icebergs for closer looks at glaciers, and each day you’ll have the option to walk or kayak, and to join a different naturalist as you choose: there are no assigned groups. See more of what you’ll do.

Encounter iconic and abundant wildlife 
Brown bears. Humpback whales. Orcas. Steller sea lions. Bald eagles. Sure-footed mountain goats on steep cliffs. The wildlife of Alaska is legendary—see it in abundance. 

Travel in excellent company 
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, five veteran naturalists, including a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist––the largest and most knowledgeable expedition team in Alaska. Their knowledge and passion for Alaska is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meet the team


This is our second Lindblad tour. We are big fans. You get into places no one else can go. The small size ships and limited passengers make it so personal and intimate. Very caring crew, staff, and naturalists. Love it!
