Expedition Team

Share the adventure with knowledgeable, engaging companions


Over the decades of exploring Costa Rica, 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 Costa Rica tour guides anywhere.

The most robust expedition team in Costa Rica
Explore with one staff member on board for every eight guests—the most robust team working in Costa Rica. 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.

More specialties and personalities
With more naturalists per guest than any other company in Costa Rica, you’re ensured a healthy diversity of naturalist specialties—marine and terrestrial biology, botany, ornithology, geology, and more—and personalities. You are never directed into groups. You’re free to gravitate to the naturalists whose interests mirror your own. And our team will make each day of your expedition deeply rewarding.
