Expedition Team

Share the adventure with knowledgeable, engaging companions


Over the decades of exploring Central America, the quality of our veteran staff, and their companionship is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for top-quality expeditions. And, together with National Geographic, there are no better tour guides anywhere.

Every expedition sails with an eight-person team including a veteran expedition leader and four naturalists. Other members of the team include an undersea specialist, a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, and a video chronicler. Together they provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation for this exceptional place.
