National Geographic Islander, launched in 2004, spends the year exploring the Galapagos Islands off the Pacific Coast of South America. Carrying only 48-guests, the quaint size allows the perfect setting for adventure, exploration, and discovery. Guests who enjoy nature, wildlife, and learning will have the trip of a lifetime onboard National Geographic Islander.

Joining guests on every voyage of National Geographic Islander will be a number of experts coming from a variety of fields. Expert photographers will teach guests how to use the right setting and techniques to capture perfect wildlife pictures, like those seen in National Geographic magazine. Naturalists and biologists will provide nightly lectures on the sights and sounds of the day's tours. Professional divers will provide guests with a view of what lies beneath the water surface.

As part of the effort to promote conservation and "Eco-Travel", National Geographic Islander uses only sustainable local ingredients. This ensures that the environmental impact of every voyage is kept to an absolute minimum. Chefs onboard are experts at taking fresh local ingredients and turning them into delicious dishes for guests to enjoy.
