The National Geographic Venture is a state-of-the-art expedition ship, and one of the newest additions to the National Geographic-Lindblad fleet. This fully stabilized vessel is designed to navigate narrow inlets and wildlife-rich passageways inaccessible to larger ships, while comfortably accommodating 100 guests in 50 outside cabins. Along with spacious viewing decks, this nimble vessel carries innovative exploration tools, including a SplashCam and a hydrophone that enable us to look and listen beneath the waves.
Public areas include a lounge with a full-service bar and facilities for film, slide shows, and presentations; a dining room; an observation deck; a partially covered sun deck with chairs, tables, and an outdoor grill; a global gallery; and a spa. All meals are served in a single seating with unassigned tables for an informal atmosphere and easy mingling.
The ship is equipped with Zodiacs and kayaks, snorkeling gear, exercise equipment, and a wide range of cameras to record the surrounding wildlife. A photo instructor, a video chronicler, an undersea specialist, and a wellness specialist accompany every voyage; and Internet access and an elevator are available on board.
