Lindblad Expeditions announced it plans to resume operations for the 2021 season in Alaska and Galpagos in June.
“Our internal team has spent the last year examining every single aspect of our operation to be prepared to operate in the ‘new normal.’ Led by our resident medical expert, Dr. David Lorber, we have enlisted the assistance of many health and safety experts and met with authorities in the regions we intend to explore,” said Sven Lindblad, CEO of Lindblad Expeditions.
“We will also require that all guests 16 years of age and over be vaccinated prior to travelling onboard.”
Comprehensive health and safety protocols required include: two negative Covid-19 tests, daily guest temperature checks, and thorough sanitation protocols.
In resuming travel to Alaska, Lindblad begins the season with six and eight-day itineraries aboard 100-guest sister ships National Geographic Quest and National Geographic Venture, with the first departures on 5 and 6 June.
Galpagos cruises resume on a 10-day itinerary aboard the 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour ll. The first Galpagos departure is set for 4 June.
