Lindblad Expeditions announced that they plan to resume operations for the 2021 season in Alaska and the Galapagos in June.

Sven Lindblad, CEO of Lindblad Expeditions said in a press statement, “we have always turned to nature, in times of collective stress and trauma, for the restoration of our spirits, believing in what Thoreau called the healing ‘tonic of wildness.’

“Our internal team has spent the last year examining every single aspect of our operation to be prepared to operate in the ‘new normal.’ Led by our resident medical expert, Dr. David Lorber, we have enlisted the assistance of many health and safety experts and met with authorities in the regions we intend to explore to ensure we are welcome and meet or exceed their expectations. We will also require that all guests 16 years of age and over be vaccinated prior to travelling onboard,” he stated.

Health and safety protocols include two negative COVID-19 tests, daily guest temperature checks, and thorough sanitation protocols.

In resuming travel to Alaska, Lindblad will begin the season with 6 and 8-day itineraries aboard their 100-guest sister ships National Geographic Quest and with the first departures June 5 and June 6.

Guests will explore the remoteness of the Galapagos archipelago as they visit volcanic isles inhabited by wildlife on a 10-day itinerary set aboard the 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour ll.  The first Galapagos departure is set for June 4.

Guests will search for wildlife and explore the Alaska and Galapagos archipelago landscapes under the guidance of the Lindblad expedition team.
