National Geographic Endeavour II Galapagos Cruises

The 96-passenger National Geographic Endeavour II is one of the best first-class expedition vessels in the Galapagos Islands, providing renowned expedition leaders and naturalist staff from National Geographic. Enjoy snorkeling, hiking, a glass-bottom boat and more on this 10-day cruise tailored for travelers seeking an active yet highly intellectual experience of the archipelago.

Located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the Galápagos Islands provide a natural habitat for some of the world’s most interesting and unusual animals. Only in Galápagos will you come face to face with wildlife that has never developed a fear of people. 

With an expedition to the Land of Darwin, visit a new island each day, all with the diverse iconic wildlife one thinks about when dreaming of this unique destination. Look forward to opportunities such as observing blue-footed boobies performing a courtship dance, snorkeling with playful sea lions, watching a male frigatebird ballooning his crimson chest pouch to attract a female, kneeling beside marine iguanas and marveling at Galápagos penguins. 

A Galapagos cruise aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II features nimble Zodiacs and kayaks that cruise to the volcanic shores and pristine beaches of Galápagos, and an undersea program utilizes underwater video, glass-bottom boat and hydrophone that bring seldom seen or heard worlds to life. Every expedition in Galápagos is led by a team of five naturalists, including an Underwater Specialist, a videographer and expedition leader, providing a multitude of resources for a rich and unmatched understanding of all that you’ll see. Plus, her unique exploration-based family program, National Geographic Global Explorers, caters to kids and teens, making her an excellent option for Galapagos family cruises.

Days 3 - 8
Galapagos Islands

Although exact routing depends on the Galapagos National Park, the National Geographic Endeavour II may visit the following islands:

North Seymour
Follow coastal trails past playful Galápagos sea lions on this wildlife-rich central island. Continue inland through a silvery forest of endemic palo santo trees, where frigatebirds nest, blue-footed boobies dance and where we may also encounter prehistoric-looking land iguanas feeding on cactus.

Bartolome
Climb the steps to the summit of this 300-foot volcanic wonderland for stunning views. Explore, swim and snorkel from the beach. You might even see Galápagos penguins, one of world’s rarest.

Santiago
Explore tide pools and look for fur seals sheltered in quiet grottos of black basalt. Swim, snorkel, kayak and paddleboard along Santiago’s spectacular coast, and explore an enchanting coastal forest where Charles Darwin once walked.

Santa Cruz
Visit Puerto Ayora, the largest town and headquarters of both the Galápagos National Park and Charles Darwin Research Station. See the monument to Lonesome George, and tour the giant tortoise breeding corrals. See the giant tortoises roaming in the wild in the lush, green highlands.

Isabela
Cross the Equator at Volcán Ecuador, northernmost of Isabela’s six great shield volcanoes. Keep an eye open for whales and dolphins, sea turtles and the elusive ocean sunfish. Over two days, land in the footsteps of Darwin and Melville, and look for wildlife along the wildly eroded volcanic shore.

Fernandina
One of the most active oceanic volcanoes in the world, Fernandina is the youngest and most pristine island in Galápagos—and home to the strange flightless cormorant, Galápagos penguins and the largest marine iguanas. Hikes ashore lead across impressive recent lava flows.

Floreana
Follow a trail past a rose pink-tinted lagoon frequented by flamingos. Snorkel among sea lions and abundant fish, or cruise along Champion Islet by Zodiac. Visit the famous barrel at Post Office Bay.

Española
See swallow-tailed gulls, Española mockingbirds, Nazca boobies and, seasonally, the world’s only population of waved albatross at this birder paradise, also home to vividly colored marine iguanas. Watch sea lions on the wide sand beach and snorkel offshore at Gardner Bay.

Genovesa
Sail across the Equator to the remote northern realm of the Galápagos, surrounded by warmer tropical waters.

San Cristobal
Search for red-footed boobies and the endemic mockingbird and lava lizard—found only on this easternmost island, and dig your toes into the powdery white sand at a gorgeous beach fronted by iconic Kicker Rock. Explore Baquerizo Moreno, where sea lions thrive in the middle of town.
