A New Ship for the Galápagos Islands

Explore the Galápagos Islands in style on the new National Geographic Islander II which will embark on its inaugural voyage in August 2022. In this video, join Darrel Schoeling, Director of Expedition Development, and Ana Esteves, Vice President of Hotel Operations, for a behind-the-scenes look at how this spectacular ship was purposely outfitted to reduce impact, build community on board, and foster an authentic connection to the people and culture of Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands.
