Kids Can Get Licensed in Nautical Navigation — No Experience Necessary

Family travelers looking for something different may be interested in this offering from Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic. Kids, even though they may not be old enough to drive a car, can now get licensed for a different type of vehicle — a Zodiac boat, which is a lightweight, open-air inflatable boat powered by a small engine and used on expeditions to transport passengers on excursions away from the main ship. While usually manned by an expert driver, this summer, the National Geographic Global Explorers Program allows school-aged kids and teens to earn their very own Zodiac “driver’s license.”
