On Tuesday 14 November, the Australian National Maritime Museum played host to the anticipated launch of Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic’s 2019-20 Explorations brochure, also revealing the release of National Geographic Endurance, the world’s most advanced expedition vessel, due to launch in 2020.
Neil Rodgers, Managing Director of Adventure World Travel, welcomed media and consortia partners in the Tasman Light Gallery where guests caught a glimpse of the ‘Unbroken Lines of Resilience: feathers, fibre and shells’ exhibit. Celebrating NAIDOC 2018, the exhibition features Australia’s most renowned Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, experts in their fields of weaving and shell stringing.
Special guest, Maya Santangelo, Lindblad Expeditions’ Naturalist and Expedition Diver, was also in attendance sharing her passion for exploration and understanding of ocean life with guests. Maya also spoke of her experiences as a marine biologist and professional dive guide and instructor, combining her passions for science communication and diving, while sharing her love for the underwater world with Lindblad Expeditions guests.
Commenting on the release of the National Geographic Endurance, Neil Rodgers stated: “Lindblad Expeditions’ science and explorations are more vibrant than ever. And while discovering new continents is no longer possible, Lindblad Expeditions’ ships can still help guests discover what’s in them. The National Geographic Endurance will be the world’s most advanced expedition vessel, where travellers will explore unchartered waters in exceptional comfort.”
To further celebrate the launch of the Explorations collection, Lindblad Expeditions has launched a special offer where travellers can bring a child or grandchild to Alaska on select departures for 50% off, and the second child for free as well as an all-inclusive offer including free bar and crew tips. *Conditions apply.
