National Geographic Endurance
National Geographic Endurance is a next-generation expedition ship, built for polar navigation. A fully stabilized, highly strengthened, ice-class Polar Class (PC5) vessel, it is designed to navigate polar passages year-round, and safely explore uncharted waters, while providing exceptional comfort. Its patented X-BOW® is key to its design; its powerful wave-slicing action provides an extremely smooth ride in even adverse conditions, and even reduces spray on deck, for superior observation. She carries a full suite of expedition tools and offers a variety of experience-enhancing amenities. The ship carries a fleet of Zodiac motorized landing craft, kayaks, snowshoes, and cross-country skis; as well as a sophisticated equipment that allows our undersea specialist unique access and ability to share the underwater world. Public areas include a lounge with bar; a gym, a yoga studio; infinity-style outdoor hot tubs; saunas with ocean views; a library; a spa; state-of-the-art facilities for films, slideshows and presentations; a photo workshop area; and two restaurants featuring local, sustainable cuisine, plus a Chef’s table for intimate, small group dining. Services include a full-time doctor, a National Geographic photographer, a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor and video chronicler, a wellness specialist, laundry service, and an internet café.
National Geographic Venture
National Geographic Venture is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built expedition vessel made for exploring remote locations in comfort. Spacious cabins, beautiful public spaces, open decks with a tiered system for optimal wildlife viewing and specialty tools for exploration make her the ideal ship for sailing in the remote areas of Alaska, Canada, Baja and the Pacific Northwest.
National Geographic Resolution
The National Geographic Resolution is a 126-guest innovative polar expedition ship set to begin sailing in Antarctica and the Arctic in late 2021. The ship’s name honors Capt. James Cook, the legendary explorer who was the first to circumnavigate Antarctica, cross the Antarctic Circle and the first European to reach Hawaii. While he served as the master of several ships, his favorite was the Resolution.
Set to begin sailing in the fourth quarter of 2021, this educational polar vessel has a specifically designed hull to break through the tough pack ice, increasing the ability to explore these hard-to-reach destinations and making new expeditions possible.
