Your key to a deep, rich, fun experience. See who they are
The quality of our veteran staff is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for exceptional expeditions. Add to that the fact that National Geographic Orion’s expedition team also includes a complement of veteran naturalists well-versed in the flora, fauna and human history of the South Pacific, and you can travel with complete confidence, assured of the richest, most in-depth experience of this fascinating region possible.
The team composition
Every expedition sails with a veteran expedition leader, an assistant expedition leader, and a team of four naturalists/cultural specialists. Other members of our South Pacific tour guide team include an undersea specialist, two divemasters, a National Geographic photographer, plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, a video chronicler, and a wellness specialist. Together they provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation for this extraordinary and diverse geography.
More specialties and personalities
Our 10-to-1 guest-to-staff 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.
