Our two expedition ships in Galápagos 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 is right for you.
National Geographic Endeavour
A classic expedition ship, this 96-guest vessel offers the benefit of more naturalists, an ROV for undersea exploration, a glass-bottom boat, and a floating massage platform. Gracious, world-traveled, and much-loved by past guests, Endeavour has a stately air and a casual, contemporary spirit. Kids delight in her expansiveness and sheer number of places to explore.
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.
