A peaceful Scottish morning looking towards the Eilean Donan Castle. . Lord of the Glens guests headed to Eilean Donan, built on the mainland at the confluence of three sea lochs. The castle walls are at least 700 years old, but it was eventually destroyed in 1719 as a consequence of one of the Jacobite rebellions, and lay in ruins until it was lovingly restored in the early 20th century by Lieutenant Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap. . . . 📷 cred: @stevemorello . . . #lindbladexpeditions #scotland #lordoftheglens #expedition #adventuretravel #travelphotography #travelgram #exploremore

Somewhere along her solo ski route across Antarctica, British polar explorer Felicity Aston began to see small, bald men riding dinosaurs. Her brain, starving for interaction and stimulation, began to fill in the gaps in creative ways. Pushing boundaries is what intrigues Felicity, what drove her to become the first woman to ski alone across Antarctica, and one of the many reasons why we salute her as July’s brave addition to #WomenLEXplorers. .

Meet the ocean’s master navigator: the green sea turtle ✔️ One of Earth’s oldest creatures. Dating back more than 200 million years, when dinosaurs roamed! ✔️ The temperature of the sand where a sea turtle nests determines the sex of the hatchlings. Warmer sand produces more females, cooler sand produces more males ✔️ Spend their entire lives at sea. Powerful breath control lets them dive up to 960 feet for food and stay submerged up to 7 hours . . . #lindbladexpeditions #wildpersonality #greenseaturtle #seaturtle #oceanconservation #ocean #planetorplastic #expedtion #travelmore #learnmore #oceanlife

Hey again all, this is @kayvonmalek with one final post for my #worldoceansmonth takeover. Just wanted to say thanks for letting me invade your insta feeds! It's been a pleasure to showcase some of my favorite moments from working in Southeast Alaska with Lindblad Expeditions as an Undersea Specialist. I thought I'd end showing another photo from Alaska of one of my favorite fish, a China Rockfish. I also threw in some of my other favorite photos from areas I've worked with Lindblad including California, Antarctica, and Baja California. All of these photos are special to me because they showcase the vast and immense beauty of our oceans. Our marine ecosystems are full of the most amazing life, but to preserve these animals we need to keep the oceans in our hearts and on our minds. Reducing plastic waste, choosing sustainable seafood, and supporting ocean conservation are all great steps to protecting our seas. But we can't forget to get in the water, be it on a surfboard, in a kayak, or blowing some bubbles below the surface. Just appreciating and enjoying the gift that is our oceans can inspire great change. So thanks for joining along and maybe I'll see you out there on our ocean planet.

Image by @livingcookiesdream There’s always something so majestic about Manta Rays, but when one larger than yourself swims right by you, towards the sun beams, in the emerald waters of the Marquesas Islands, it’s somewhat magical. I guess that’s why some people call them magic carpets. This beautiful animal casually swam by while a group of snorkelers were out in the water. We had high hopes of seeing mantas, but weren’t having much luck. When one finally swam by and became comfortable with us it was so special, eventually the rays swam away and we all just looked up at each other glowing, smiling, jaws dropped, knowing words couldn’t give justice to what we had just experienced. #worldoceansmonth #magiccarpet

From the towering biomass of the temperate rainforests that earnestly cover the land, to the cold nutrient-rich waters being flushed in from the Pacific Ocean, there is something for all trophic levels. To compliment the diversity of flora and fauna, our morning expedition in Dundas Bay was similarly varied. Bright orange kayaks soon added a splash of color, along with a few more literal splashes, to the placid waters that are protected by rising peaks.
