National Geographic Islander: An exceptional 48 passenger luxury yacht

Days: 10 | From: $7,550/per person

The National Geographic Islander is a 48-passenger ship with 22 outside cabins, 8 of which have glassed-in terraces, as well as 2 suites with wraparound views over the bow. The Islander offers outdoor hammock decks, a library, wellness center, and an indoor bar and lounge that hosts a nightly cocktail hour and photo recap of the day’s adventures. The dining room features fresh local food. Unlike most Galapagos cruises, the Islander’s program begins the day before you arrive to Galapagos, giving you a chance to explore Guayaquil and get to know your fellow passengers. Excursion options include hiking, snorkeling, and kayaking. With top quality naturalist guides, great food, and comfortable cabins, this is an excellent option for exploring the Galapagos.
