The Galápagos Islands, located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, provide a natural habitat for some of the world’s most unusual animals. This remarkable journey aboard the 48-guest National Geographic Islander brings you face to face with the extraordinary natural wonders of this wildlife sanctuary. With an experienced staff of naturalists, you encounter wildlife that does not fear people and is so abundant that you may have to watch your footing to avoid disturbing the nap of a resting sea lion or a passing iguana.

Animal life varies from island to island, but likely encounters include: sea lions frolicking in the waters, blue-footed boobies performing a courtship “dance” ritual, a male frigate bird ballooning his crimson chest pouch to attract a female. You can snorkel in colorful waters, scuba dive with an incredible variety of fish, or view the marine life up-close from our glass-bottom boat.

Accompanied by UW Professor Dee Boersma. Read a recent New York Times interview with Professor Boersma.
