National Geographic Islander II

A New Ship with Just 26 Spacious Staterooms and Suites Sailing the Galápagos Islands

Overview

Lindblad Expeditions is thrilled to welcome the National Geographic Islander II to our fleet. Sleek and elegant, she sails year-round in the Galápagos Islands and elevate the guest experience to an entirely new level.

 

National Geographic Islander II is a gracious expedition vessel that feels like a private yacht. With only 26 staterooms and suites, and accommodating just 48 guests, she sails with a 1:1 guest-to-crew ratio.

 

Special features include teak decks, indoor-outdoor dining options, an impressive observation deck, and new amenities like a climate-controlled marina and a dedicated science hub.

Fly through our newest ship in the Galápagos on a virtual tour unlike any other. Follow our drone as it soars over, around, and through every nook and cranny of this elegant vessel.
