Mediterranean Expedition Team

Share the adventure with knowledgeable, engaging companions


The quality of our veteran staff and their companionship is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for top-quality expeditions. And now that we are aligned with National Geographic, there is no better team anywhere.

The team composition
Every expedition sails with a veteran expedition leader, a historian, and a naturalist who is also a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor. With an extensive background in the region and knowledge of its natural history, human history, archaeology, and mythology, you can rely on our Mediterranean travel guides to enhance your experience of each place you visit.

Being an expedition filmmaker enables Jeff to combine his love for capturing beauty with his drive to protect the environment. In the words of Jacques Cousteau, “people protect what they love.” Inspired, Jeff created UGENA.org, the United Global Environmental News Agency, an online resource to inspire people to care about the environment.

  • Luke Correale

    Assistant Expedition Leader
    Growing up in Connecticut, a love of the outdoors was cultivated in Luke from a young age, as he spent most of his time on the water exploring its coast. His mother, a laboratory scientist and master naturalist, and his father, a fine-woodworker and sailor, enrolled him in Audubon summer camps, encouraged and nurtured his fishing skills, and allowed for hours of uninterrupted time in the woods. Throughout high school and college Luke worked as a first mate on a classic Sportfishing vessel out of Montauk, NY. He also worked in guest services at a local seaside hotel where he developed a rich appreciation of all peoples.
