Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic announced plans to add additional cruises for the 2021 summer season in Alaska.

Due to robust demand for the Alaska programming, Lindblad said it would reactivate its 2 remaining USA-flagged ships and add an additional 13 departures.

The 62-passenger sisterships NatGeo Sea Lion and NatGeo Sea Bird are scheduled to explore Alaska on a series of Wild Escape departures beginning June 25 and continuing through August.

The 6-day Wild Alaska Escape (from Juneau to Ketchikan) and Wild Alaska Escape (from Sitka to Juneau) cruises explore Alaska on an active expedition to see the iconic wildlife and epic landscapes of the region. Guests will be able to kayak long routes into glacially carved fjords and hike through forests of towering trees with opportunities for active adventures, all with an expedition ship as a moving base camp. Those looking for a more epic journey can combine both Wild Alaska Escapes as well as benefit from 10% off. Cruise fares begin at US$4,570 per person based on double occupancy.

All passengers 16 years of age and over are required to be vaccinated before sailing. Key components of Lindblad Expeditions' health and safety protocols include negative COVID tests, daily guest temperature checks, thorough cleaning protocols. From beginning to finish, passengers travel exclusively with their expedition community.
