Lindblad Expeditions takes a 360º approach to their Galápagos expeditions — and guarantees guests have an in-depth encounter with all the wonders the Galápagos Islands have to offer. The newly-refitted 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour II is fully equipped with tools for exploration that will enable you to see more of the archipelago’s varied islands and habitats, have up-close encounters with incredible wildlife, experience the Galápagos undersea,and benefit from Lindblad Expeditions’ 50 years of experience and relationships in Galápagos.
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 (SCUBA opportunities are also available at charge on select departures). For those who prefer to stay dry, there’s the adventure of Endeavour II’s glass bottom Zodiac. 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.
Travel in excellent company
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, four handpicked naturalists, including a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist. Their knowledge and passion for the islands is your key to this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
