This 48-passenger luxury yacht offers guests an intimate Galapagos experience, with the amenities and high class service discerning travelers expect. At 164 feet, the National Geographic Islander is perfectly sized and offers a full range of facilities, including an onboard spa and fitness center. From broad open decks (complete with comfy hammocks perfect for iguana-like basking in the sun) to delectable dining on fresh, local food, the Islander delivers a sophisticated and amiable expedition. Her classically nautical interiors, complete with mahogany and gleaming brass fittings, offer comfortable spaces to take in the scenery and relax after an active, but exhilarating day ashore. With ample deck space and public rooms, you can choose to withdraw to a cozy corner by yourself or join others for an engaging conversation and refreshing drink. Onboard, the Global Market showcases and sells items made by the people of Galápagos and Ecuador. You may find hand-carved wooden chess sets and masks, jewelry crafted from recycled glass beads, woven sun hats and locally made bags, locally grown coffee and avocado oil, plus books by some of your naturalists. The Islander includes mainland services in Quito or Guayaquil and cannot be reserved as cruise-only.
