National Geographic Sea Bird

Lindblad Expeditions' National Geographic Sea Bird can reach places inaccessible to larger ships due to their small size, yet each comfortably accommodates 62 guests in 31 outside cabins. It has more of a large private yacht feel to it with everyone integral to the adventure. Accessibility means freedom. The captains have decades of sailing experience and they know when and where to navigate so that you do not meet hoards of other boats. Their sturdy fleet of Zodiacs and virtually untippable kayaks mean you can be off the ship and out exploring within a moment's notice. The expedition staff will be on constant marine watch and like nothing better than directing the ship toward breaching whales, bow-riding dolphins or into an alluring cove.

The ship features a library; a lounge with full-service bar and facilities for films, slide shows and presentations; an observation deck; partially covered sun deck with chairs and tables. Kayaks, snorkeling gear and wet-suits are also provided. The "Open Bridge" policy provides guests an opportunity to meet the officers and captain. Meals are served in the dining room at set times with an informal atmosphere and the menu concentrates on local cuisine.

All the cabins face the outside with windows, private facilities and climate controls. The main deck Category one cabins are all conveniently positioned between the dining room and lounge, these cabins feature two lower single beds, a writing desk and a view window. Category two cabins are located either on the upper or bridge deck and include two lower single beds and a view window. The Category three cabins and the largest feature a seating unit with table and two large view windows. The upper deck, Category three cabins, include two lower single beds which can convert to a double bed and a pull-out single bed for a third person — bridge deck cabins include two lower single beds only.
