At Lindblad Expeditions, our shipboard chefs use fresh, local ingredients whenever possible, including locally grown produce, sustainable catch fish, and other local and indigenous products. By adding regional ingredients and flavors to a menu that also includes traditional favorites, we aim to provide our guests with a greater sense of the cuisine and culture in the regions being explored. 

Recent initiatives promoting sustainable cuisine include:

Chefs at Sea. This program engages the passion and energy of A-list chefs on board our ships and includes cooking demos, lectures and other opportunities for guests to learn about food history and culture such as exploring food markets, gardens or other places of culinary interest around the globe.

SEAFOOD FOR THOUGHT: Seafood for Thought is an initiative designed to provide both information and inspiration when it comes to helping preserve fish stocks world-wide and making informed choices about seafood purchasing. On our vessels we are working to ensure that seafood offerings are carefully selected not only for flavor, but also for the best fishing practices possible.

We research our fish supply to learn where and by what method the catch comes from in order to choose the best available options. We strive to purchase and serve species that are not considered over-fished or caught by practices that have negative environmental impacts. Also, the efforts of responsible fisheries that utilize methods which cause little damage to the ecosystem are rewarded and supported whenever possible. The final result is flavorful, succulent seafood for our guests to savor that supports conservation solutions to help restore living abundance to the world's oceans.
