drone VIDEO: National Geographic Islander II FPV Ship Tour

   September 24, 2022 ,   Cruise Industry

Lindblad Expeditions produced a spectacular FTV/fly-through-video of the company's newest ship - National Geographic Islander II (1991-built, fka Crystal Esprit for the old Crystal Cruises).

Follow the drone as it soars over/around/through every nook of the Galapagos-deployed Nat Geo Islander 2 - from the indoor/outdoor areas to the passenger staterooms and the high-tech Science Hub.

The video was captured using customized FPV drones that are typically used for racing. They are small and fast and demand pilots to wear goggles with a live feed to make quick maneuvers, requiring a great deal of experience.

With a 10-hour production window in Galapagos, Dream Beach Media captured the unique perspective of navigating hard spaces where traditional drones can't fly. Racing through the entire vessel, the result was the ultimate ship tour video and a visual tool for the pioneering expedition travel company.
