Lindblad Expeditions, in partnership with National Geographic, is offering guests the opportunity to make art and support local artisans while sailing the Galapagos Islands through the Make Art, Make a Difference program. The new program, available on select voyages this August and September, allows guests to observe and learn about the area’s natural history through an array of activities, including on board and ashore drawing sessions led by Lindblad’s artists-in-residence, Amy Bartlett Wright and Jonathan Alderfer. Guests also have the opportunity to learn about the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic Fund’s trash-to-treasure transformation through presentations and a visit to the Fund’s newest glass workshop on the Santa Cruz Island, where local artisans transform recycled paper into jewelry. Before returning home, Linblad will provide guests with two complimentary keepsakes made by artisans from recycled materials: a handmade glass and a Paper to Pearls keychain. Rates start at $6,590 bb dbl in a Category 1 cabin. Special offers for this cruise include free roundtrip airfare from Miami to the Galapagos, as well as a 15 percent discount off standard solo rates on select dates for solo travelers.
