Encounter the island chain that has enchanted explorers since Darwin first weighed anchor off its shores.

In the evenings, return to the Xavier to reflect on the day's adventures. Retire to air-conditioned cabins with exclusive lower berths and private bathrooms. As one of the region's largest operators, we understand the importance of controlling the onboard experience – that's why you'll never end up on another operator's ship.
