Canada Expedition Team

Our superb team is the key to your experience


The team composition
Every expedition sails with a veteran expedition leader and a team comprised of eight naturalists and historians with a variety of specialties: geology, biology, archaeology, anthropology, maritime history, and more. Other members of the 15-person team include an undersea specialist, a National Geographic photographer, plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, a video chronicler, and a wellness specialist. Together, our Canada travel guides provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation for this exceptional place.

More specialties and personalities
Our better than one-to-ten staff-to-guest ratio ensures you the benefits of diverse backgrounds, and the freedom to head out on activities with the naturalist whose interests mirror your own. You are never assigned to a specific group, and our team can custom-tailor activities to match your activity level—to make each day of your expedition uniquely yours, and deeply rewarding.
