Lindblad Expeditions, National Geographic Sea Bird

Take a tour on board


National Geographic Sea Bird accommodates 62 guests in 31 cabins. All accommodations are outside facing with a window or porthole, and the cabins on the upper and bridge decks open to the outside deck. Double-occupancy cabins include two single beds, and category three cabins feature two lower single beds that can be converted to a double bed, plus a pullout single bed for a third person. Your room is a comfortable space to end your active day, with organic cotton duvets and crisp cotton sheeting. Attentive hotel staff will transform your room while you’re out hiking or exploring, so you can return to a cool, welcoming space.

Every cabin has Wi-Fi access, temperature controls, and is stocked with botanically inspired hair products, soap, and shower gel, plus a hairdryer. Beneath every bed is space to store luggage, and each cabin has one or two closets plus drawers under the beds. A speaker in your cabin is tuned to the microphone in the ship’s lounge.

You can listen to evening lectures while sorting photos on your laptop. Leave your PA turned on overnight if you’d like to be alerted to any sightings that might occur during the hours before breakfast, or simply turn it off if you’d like to sleep peacefully through the morning’s activities.

The global market

Discover the talent of local artisans in the places Sea Bird ventures in the ship’s global market. The global market is a collection of items made by local residents in the places we explore. It is hosted in the ship’s lounge during each expedition. You may find silver jewelry crafted in Alaska, handmade dolls from Baja, paintings and books by your naturalist staff, plus expedition clothing and other essentials. Every item purchased in the global market contributes to the Lindblad Artisan Fund, which supports artisans in communities around the world to develop their potential more effectively and successfully.


You’re invited to the ship’s bridge to see the calm business of navigation unfold. Ask the watch officer questions about navigation. Or, help yourself to the ever-ready binoculars to scan the horizon for whale spouts.
