The National Geographic Islander II departs on its inaugural cruise

Acquired by Lindblad Expeditions in 2021, the vessel is now set to offer year-round expeditions in the Galápagos Archipelago. 

Replacing the 1995-built National Geographic Islander, the ship will offer two different itineraries, the seven-day Wild Galápagos Escape and the ten-day Wild Galápagos & Peru Escape – which also includes a land-based tour to Cusco, Machu Pichu, Lima and the Sacred Valley.


This is especially good news, as National Geographic are a very old, very aware American company, and they will bring even more quality, sense and eco-tourism to travelers. Look into selling cruises, if you haven’t already. And don’t forget that people need to get to the docks, and may need to stay overnight: good opportunities for you, too.
