Aboard National Geographic M/V Islander

October 14-20, 2021

December 9-15, 2021

February 3-9, 2022

There’s never a dull moment in Galápagos. In these enchanted isles, you can get closer than you ever imagined to endemic wildlife that lacks an instinctive fear of humans, explore a vibrant and unique undersea, and observe diverse habitats from stark volcanic landscapes to lush, green highlands.

Since not everyone has the luxury of time to commit to an extended voyage, we are delighted to provide a shorter, action-packed itinerary that delivers the best of Galápagos. Now those who have yearned to experience the wonders and wildlife of the most interesting islands in the world don’t have to miss out—you can see, do, and discover it all in just eight days.

Aboard the National Geographic Islander, a 24-cabin, yacht-like expedition ship equipped with a suite of tools for exploring, you will experience the islands with all your senses. Kayak along idyllic beaches keeping watch for passing sea turtles, snorkel with playful sea lions, hike lava fields crowded with basking marine iguanas, or take a sunset Zodiac cruise around rocky shorelines teeming with unique birdlife.

And you will share the adventure with a veteran team of naturalists—locals whose passion for these islands and their conservation will spark your own. In addition, you’ll have the services of an undersea specialist and an onboard certified photo instructor, a naturalist specially trained to help you with your camera, settings, and basics to ensure you go home with incredible photos.
