Wellness Specialists

Be exhilarated by exploring, be relaxed and rejuvenated by wellness

Our wellness program is the embodiment of our belief that nature is vitalizing and that wildness, as Thoreau famously said, supplies a tonic. The program is designed to complement the natural tonic of wildness. Wellness specialists lead morning stretches aboard, or stretching-oriented walks ashore. And they provide a range of nature-inspired body and facial treatments from Humpback Whale Deep Tissue Massage to a Marine Iguana Salt Glow to soothe, reenergize, and feel more connected to the unique region you’re exploring.

Wellness specialists are aboard every ship in the National Geographic-flagged fleet.
