Lindblad Expeditions has just produced a spectacular new fly-through video of their newest ship in their fleet on a virtual tour unlike any other. Follow their drone as it soars over, around, and through every nook and cranny of the elegant National Geographic Islander ll in Galapagos – from the welcoming indoor/outdoor dining areas to the spacious guest suites to the high-tech Science Hub.

The thrilling video was captured using customized FPV drones typically used for racing. These drones are small and fast demanding pilots to wear goggles with a live feed to make quick turns and maneuvers —and require a great deal of training and experience.

With a short 10-hour production window in Galapagos to complete the mission, company Dream Beach Media captured a unique perspective navigating typically hard spaces where traditional drones cannot fly. Racing through the entire ship, the result was the ultimate ship tour video and a great visual tool for the pioneering expedition travel company.
