Unique, immersive style of travel
Experiencing the Galápagos Islands on an expedition is an unrivaled experience. And our 360º approach is your guarantee of an in-depth encounter with all its wonders. The 48-guest National Geographic Islander is fully equipped with tools for exploration that will enable you to:

  • See more of the archipelago’s varied islands and habitats
  • Have up close encounters with incredible wildlife
  • Experience the Galápagos undersea, too
  • Benefit from our 40+ years of experience and relationships in Galápagos to see all you came for and more.

Encounter abundant wildlife 
Blue-footed boobies. Flightless cormorants. Darwin’s finches. Pink flamingos. Sea lions on beaches or gamboling underwater. Giant tortoises grazing in the highlands. The wildlife of Galápagos is legendary for its uniqueness and lack of fear, allowing you the rare experience of being treated as an equal in the wild world. Each island contains endemic species, and you’ll have the opportunity to see a panoply of Galápagos’ creatures in their native habitats—on land and in the sea.

Every day is active and engaging
You’ll be able to snorkel nearly every day, sometimes twice a day. For those who prefer to stay dry, there’s the service of our undersea specialist, who’ll share undersea video footage with you during the cocktail hour. And each day you’ll have the option to walk, hike, kayak, or Zodiac cruise, and to join a different naturalist as you choose: there are no assigned groups. See more of what you’ll do.

Travel in excellent company
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, three handpicked naturalists, including a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist. Their knowledge and passion for the islands is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meet the team
