Sea Lion / Sea Bird
Overview : The National Geographic Sea Lion and National Geographic Sea Bird are 62-passenger sister ships. At 152 feet in length, they operate comfortably in remote environments. With a shallow draft and small size, the National Geographic Sea Lion and National Geographic Sea Bird can easily reach places inaccessible to larger ships. They have a fleet of motorized Zodiac landing craft that is key to this style of expedition travel and provide passengers close-up views of whales in Baja California, icebergs in Alaska and waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest. All Alaska departures include an Undersea Specialist who will capture the amazing world beneath the water's surface. The vessels are equipped with tools for exploration that guarantee an in-depth experience. Additional special features onboard include: hydrophone, kayaks, snorkeling gear, stand-up paddle boards, Splash-Cam, and video microscope.
