Ship Type: Luxury Expedition Ship

The Island Sky is an all suites, all inclusive small expedition vessel with touches of elegance throughout. Carrying a maximum of 108 passengers, she provides an abundance of public space for wildlife viewing, relaxation, and taking in lectures and briefings. For excursions ashore, the Island Sky carries a fleet of Zodiacs, and bridge visits allow for the chance to see her expert officers and crew at work.

The passionate Expedition Team and crew aboard this ship can’t wait to show you around and take you to places most people only dream about. Every day presents a new adventure. An early wake-up call may signal the sighting of nearby whales, while an afternoon Zodiac cruise may present you with the intense blues of passing icebergs.
