Twin expedition ships perfect for exploring these islands and seas
Newly Redesigned cabins
Both National Geographic Sea Bird and National Geographic Sea Lion have been transformed. The lounge and bar, center of onboard life, have been handsomely re-styled and renovated to accommodate the expedition community. The refreshed dining room is now doubly welcoming. And every cabin in every category has been outfitted with fresh cherry veneer and our signature bed lines. From the sleekly framed photos on the walls, to the fresh paint, carpets and polished brass, each ship sets new standard for expedition hospitality and comfort.
Our twin 62-guest expedition ships offer the perfect platform for exploring Baja California and the Sea of Cortez. With a shallow draft, they can go where larger ships cannot, sailing through narrow channels where whales feed and among the desert islands dotting the azure Sea of Cortez.
National Geographic Sea Bird
A 62-guest expedition ship, National Geographic Sea Bird accommodates guests in 31 outside cabins. Her open bow and sundeck have ample space for all guests to stand together and share in the wildlife viewing experience.
National Geographic Sea Lion
The twin sister ship to National Geographic Sea Bird, National Geographic Sea Lion is an identical expedition ship also accommodating 62-guests in 31 outside cabins. She has been compared by Andrew Evans, National Geographic writer, as the “closest thing” to Cousteau’s Calypso he’s ever had the pleasure to be on.
