Your key to a deep, rich, fun experience. Meet them.
In the 50+ years of our expedition history, the quality of our veteran staff is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for top-quality expeditions. And, with National Geographic, there is no better team anywhere.
Every South American East Coast expedition sails with a veteran expedition leader and a team of naturalists with a variety of specialties: zoology, biology, ornithology, geology, history, and more. Other members of the 15-person team include a National Geographic photographer, plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, an ethnomusicologist, a Global Perspectives guest speaker, an undersea specialist, a wellness specialist, and a video chronicler. Together they provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation for this exceptional geography.
Our better than 1-to-10 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.
