Spring expedition cruises - Lindblad in the Sea of Cortez

Spring expedition cruises

Spring is a time when many ships reposition from north to south, offering rare opportunities to visit remote areas of Africa, Latin America and the South Pacific. At this time of year Japan turns pink with cherry blossom, Patagonia is flushed with autumn colours and gray whales congregate in Mexico’s Sea of Cortez.

Our insight

Where to go in spring

The spring months can be a great time to find more unusual expedition voyages, as ships reposition between their winter and summer bases. Options to consider include West Africa, with some fascinating itineraries visiting destinations such as Benin, Cape Verde and Namibia.

April is the tail end of the green season in the Galapagos, when the islands are still covered in lush vegetation, and waved albatross begin to arrive on the island of Española in large numbers. Spring is also the best time to see large pods of dolphins and whales in Mexico's Sea of Cortez, memorably described by Jacques Cousteau as 'the world's aquarium'.

Spring is cherry blossom season in Japan, and an increasing number of expedition voyages offer you the chance to see more off-the-beaten-track corners of this intriguing country. Meanwhile in the southern hemisphere it's autumn colours that predominate, and this can be a beautiful and less busy time of year to visit Patagonia and the Chilean Fjords. Elsewhere in South America it's high water season in the Amazon, when more of the forest is navigable by river cruise vessels.
