Ships in the Lindblad-National Geographic fleet are a platform for scientific exploration and knowledge. While exploring some of the wildest places on Earth, the fleet brings travelers face-to-face with nature and gives them the opportunity to contribute to scientific endeavors above and below the water. Guests are encouraged to submit photos of whale sightings to Happy Whale and bird sightings to e-Bird, aiding real-time scientific research efforts.
