SHIP

National Geographic Sea Bird

The National Geographic Sea Bird, built in 1981 and refurbished in 2005, comfortably accommodates 62 guests in 31 outside cabins. The ship features a library, lounge with full-service bar, observation deck, partially covered sun deck, and LEXspa. "Open Bridge" provides guests an opportunity to meet our officers and Captain and to learn about navigation. Meals are served in a single seating with unassigned tables for easy mingling. Special expedition equipment includes a bow camera, hydrophone, expedition landing craft, ​kayaks, Splash-Cam, underwater video camera, and video microscope.

National Geographic Sea Lion

National Geographic Sea Lion, like her twin ship National Geographic Sea Bird, is a tried and true expedition ship. With a shallow draft and small size, she can easily reach places inaccessible to larger ships. She can venture into fast-moving channels where whales come to feed, nose up to waterfalls in secluded coves, and sail into protected anchorages in small bays perfect for snorkeling and kayaking.

Sea Lion accommodates 62 guests in 31 outside cabins. Her inviting public spaces foster a sense of shipboard life where everyone is integral to the adventure, engendering a sense of expedition community. She is equipped with special expedition equipment that guarantee us an in-depth experience in all the places we explore - a bow camera, hydrophone, kayaks, Splash-Cam, underwater video camera, and video microscope. And her open bow is a natural gathering place that accommodates the entire community at once for shared wildlife viewing experiences.
