This trip was exceptional in every way from the initial planning to the moment we debarked. The service we received from Linda Young and Florence Banks at the Young Travel Agency met our needs and provided us with everything we needed for an amazing trip. The crew and staff of the Sea Lion were exceptional. THANK YOU ALL!

This is my seventh Lindblad trip that Michelle has helped me plan. She is wonderful to work with; highly competent; and, very personable.

A fun and exciting way to see Alaska

By: Lisa B

Reviewed on: 17 Jun 2018

From start to finish, the experience was great. The crew was knowledgeable and adaptable. There were fun outings everyday. (hiking, kayaking, lectures) It is a small ship (62 passengers) so logistics are much easier as is getting to know other passengers. My only complaint (though not enough of complaint that I still wouldn't rate the trip as 10 out of 10) was the food. Bland is being kind. Overall though, it would be the only way I would recommend seeing Alaska from the water. The smaller ship could get in places the large cruise liners can't and can have more personalized experiences. Will definitely be on another Nat Geo ship in the future!
