62Ship Type: Expedition Cruise ShipOperated by: Lindblad Expeditions
The Sea Lion, sister ship of the Sea Bird, can reach places inaccessible to larger ships due to their small size, yet it comfortably accommodates 62 guests in 31 outside cabins. Cruise remote regions of Alaska, Mexico's Baja, Northwest Pacific and more. The feeling, we’re told, is often compared to that of a large private yacht, with everyone integral to the adventure.
Accessibility means freedom. These captains have decades of sailing experience in the regions you'll explore. They know when and where to navigate so that you feel the places we visit are all yours. Thanks to a sturdy fleet of Zodiacs and virtually untippable kayaks, you can be off the ship and out exploring within a moment’s notice. Launch your kayak from a picturesque beach, hike into the rain forest or walk easily along a sandy dune.
Your seasoned crew will consist of expert Zodiac drivers and considerate service providers. Their energy, enthusiasm and field expertise are sure to enhance your experience.
In addition, the ship features a library, lounge with full-service bar and facilities for films, slide shows and lectures, an Observation Deck, and partially covered Sun Deck with chairs and tables. The "Open Bridge" policy also allows you to meet Officers.
Meals are served in single seatings with unassigned tables for an informal atmosphere and easy mingling. Breakfast is a wide selection buffet and lunch is often served family style. Menu emphasizes local flair.
All cabins face outside with windows, private facilities, and climate controls.
