Get a sense of exploring expedition style
Unique, immersive style of travel
Experiencing the Galápagos Islands on an expedition is an unrivaled experience. And our 360º approach is your guarantee of an in-depth encounter with all its wonders. The 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour II is fully equipped with tools for exploration that will enable you to:
Encounter abundant wildlife
Blue-footed boobies. Flightless cormorants. Darwin’s finches. Pink flamingos. Sea lions on beaches or gamboling underwater. Giant tortoises grazing in the highlands. The wildlife of Galápagos is legendary for its uniqueness and lack of fear, allowing you the rare experience of being treated as an equal in the wild world. Each island contains endemic species, and you’ll have the opportunity to see a panoply of Galápagos’ creatures in their native habitats—on land and in the sea.
Every day is active and engaging
You’ll be able to snorkel nearly every day, sometimes twice a day. And advanced scuba divers are invited to dive incredible sites of stunning biodiversity over two days at an additional charge. For those who prefer to stay dry, there’s the adventure of Endeavour II's glass bottom boat. And each day you’ll have the option to walk, hike, kayak, paddleboard or Zodiac cruise, and to join a different naturalist as you choose: there are no assigned groups for your Galápagos adventure travel.
Travel in excellent company
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, four handpicked naturalists, including a certified photo instructor and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist. Their knowledge and passion for the islands is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
