National Geographic Sea Bird: Built to see wildlife


National Geographic Sea Bird from National Geographic-Lindblad Expeditions is designed to navigate narrow inlets and wildlife-rich passageways inaccessible to larger ships, while comfortably accommodating 62 guests in 31 outside cabins. Along with spacious viewing decks, this nimble vessel carries innovative exploration tools, including a SplashCam and a hydrophone that enable passengers to look and listen beneath the waves.

Public areas include a lounge with a full-service bar and facilities for film, slide shows and presentations; a dining room; a library; an observation deck; a partially covered sun deck with chairs and tables; a gift shop; and a spa. All meals are served in a single seating with unassigned tables for an informal atmosphere and easy mingling.

The ship (like her sister ship National Geographic Sea Lion) is equipped with Zodiacs and kayaks, snorkeling gear, exercise equipment and a wide range of cameras to record the surrounding wildlife. A full-time doctor, a photo instructor, a video chronicler and a wellness specialist accompany every voyage. Internet access and laundry service are available on board. All cabins have a window with an outside view, private facilities and climate controls.
