The Expedition Experience

On our Galápagos cruise tours, you’ll be snorkeling, hiking, paddleboarding, and cruising by Zodiac. You'll encounter animals unafraid of you.

Join us to get everything our more than 50 years' experience in Galápagos Islands cruise has to offer, aboard the 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour II or the yacht-scaled 48-guest National Geographic Islander. Since the first international tourist expedition cruise to the Galápagos Islands in July 1967 with Lars-Eric Lindblad, we’ve introduced generations of guests to these strange and wonderful islands, the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sailing twice weekly, all year round.

Explore the undersea on our Galápagos cruise tours. In the 50+ years we’ve been exploring here, we’ve introduced generations of guests to the magic and mystery of a cruise to the Galápagos Islands— the best islands in the world.
