Take an unforgettable journey over Thanksgiving aboard our fully chartered expedition ship, the National Geographic Endeavor II—described as part grand hotel, part floating research center. The incomparable Galápagos Islands are situated 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. Journey through the protected areas of the Galápagos National Park and the Galápagos Marine Reserve, where you might see penguins, sea lions, albatross, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, flamingos, and much more—all from an incredibly close vantage point.
View even more amazing creatures such as dolphins, whales, fur seals, and giant tortoises while kayaking, snorkeling, and exploring remote islands. Lindblad enlists only the most experienced of guides and naturalists. These experts will share commentary during day tours and lead engaging conversations while on board the ship.
The Galápagos Islands were the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. Encounter sea turtles, penguins, blue-footed boobies, sea lions, seals, and a vast array of bird species.
Get up-close to tortoises, iguanas, and other wildlife that first inspired Charles Darwin on his expedition centuries ago and learn about efforts to conserve endangered species and their island habitats.
Sailing aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II, a true state-of-the-art research vessel, you’ll be led by a team of expert guides, naturalists, and a photographer who will share their knowledge and lead engaging discussions on the voyage.
