Maritime Shipboard Emergency Medical Response Training

By Captain Thomas E. Bliss

November 7th is a big day for me, and for more reasons than the election, its Emergency Medical Response Training day for the crew of the newest ship in National Geographic’s fleet, the Vessel “Venture.”

As a maritime training professional I don’t always lead such an exciting life of training aboard amazing vessels like Lindblad-National Geographic’s “Venture”, but every now and then I get an amazing opportunity.

This is much more than your average “First Aid Class”, our focus will be more advanced life saving skills, as this ship is often in remote areas and far from the quick response of 911, or the United States Coast Guard.  These types of classes are a full day, and include a very interactive, dynamic, hands on approach.

A Lindblad-National Geographic expedition is arguably the most exhilarating overseas adventure experience a person can have. Nothing else comes close to approximating its authenticity and all-five-senses engagement. Discover the planet’s most remarkable places, accompanied by experts able to illuminate all you see, and with cool tools to use to explore up close and personally.

The 238’-6” x 44’ x 10’ Jones Act coastal cruise vessel is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built expedition vessel made for exploring coastal waters, shallow coves, and fast-moving channels where wildlife congregate; while sailing with the luxury of supreme comfort. Spacious cabins, open decks for wildlife viewing, and specialty tools for exploration make it the ideal platform for voyaging in remote areas.To book a class aboard your vessel, please contact us at
