Two ships offering weekly Friday and Saturday departures year-round
Our Galápagos ships offer two different, but equally appealing experiences of the islands. Which to choose depends on your travel schedule and whether you’re traveling on your own, as a couple, with family or with a group. Our expedition specialists will help you determine which departure and ship are right for your Galápagos Island vacation.
National Geographic Islander
Yacht-scaled and trim, her mahogany and gleaming brass fittings create a gracious and welcoming environment. Guests of this 48-guest twin-hulled expedition ship often compare Islander to being aboard a private yacht—one that’s as smart as she is lovely and dedicated to discovery.
National Geographic Endeavour II
Our newest 96-guest ship replaced Endeavour and continues to operate the exact same itineraries, with the same tools for exploration, including a glass-bottom Zodiac, and the same top team. Quiet, maneuverable with a shallow draft to get you up close, this purpose-built expedition ship was completely refitted in 2016 for Galápagos service.
