Max Passengers: 48
Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship

The Islander is a versatile 164-foot twin-hulled vessel with 24 spacious cabins comfortably accommodating 48 guests. She offers guests an intimate experience, with the amenities and high class service discerning travelers expect. The Islander is a sturdy expedition ship, designed for year-round discovery and active exploration of the Galápagos and can reach places inaccessible to larger ships due to its small size.

Accessibility means freedom. The captains of the Islander have decades of sailing experience in the Galapagos archipelago. They know when and where to navigate so that you feel the places you visit are all yours. Thanks to a sturdy fleet of Zodiacs and virtually untippable kayaks, you can be off the ship and out exploring within a moment’s notice.

During your time on the Islander, your expedition staff likes nothing better than to surprise and delight you by directing the ship toward alluring coves or bow-riding dolphins. A seasoned crew consists of expert Zodiac drivers and considerate service providers. Their energy, enthusiasm and local field expertise are sure to enhance your experience. This is what expedition travel is all about: not just seeing wildness, but being out there, in it.

A multitude of options are offered for exploring any Galapagos Island, including some shore landings before breakfast and coastal explorations from Zodiacs and kayaks. You'll be provided with a properly fitting wetsuit and snorkeling gear that are yours for the expedition — no need to pack your own. Jump in and go snorkeling in deep water with sea lions, or join some members of your friendly expedition team in the shallows for practice. The Islander carries the resources to add depth to your experience – and every activity offered on board is included in the price.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
