Lindblad Alaska Cruises are active & involved Alaska small boat cruises. Their small, 62-guest ships can tuck into secluded coves and harbors and view glaciers up close. When there is more to explore, they simply launch small Zodiac boats or kayaks for a more firsthand experience.
Size does matter when talking about an Alaska Small Ship Cruise!
All Lindblad Cruises have more naturalists on board than any other expedition company in Alaska. They love sharing their passions whether it is the rainforests, creatures of the sea, or knowledge of Alaska. This means more knowledge, perspective and personal experience! Their high caliber, expert staff is just as excited to be in Alaska and excited to see wildlife as you!
And as of 2011, a Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic-certified Photo Instructor is on every cruise. You will have your own photo coach with you on the cruise, allowing you to capture the best images possible! And with their knowledgeable staff that knows both where and when to look for wildlife, you will surely come back with incredible images of your tour. And if you want to leave the photos up to the professionals, a video chronicler is onboard and will make a DVD of your trip.
At the end of each day the passengers & naturalists is an informal recap session of the day where you can share your experiences with everyone & discuss what you enjoyed.
Nothing says Alaska Adventure Cruises more than kayaking around glaciers!
