Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

The National Geographic Endeavour, operated by Lindblad Expeditions, spends the year plying the wildlife rich waters of the Galapagos Islands. A classic expedition ship, she benefits from one of the highest naturalist guide to passenger ratios in the Galapagos, a great benefit for the overall experience of those on board. She offers extensive open deck space, perfect for spontaneous whale watching or perhaps a sundowner cocktail.

She accommodates 96 passengers across 56 spacious outside cabins, each one with a porthole or window and are similarly decked out with a table and chairs, the two suites include a sofa bed, large windows and one or two lounge chairs in a seating area separate from the sleeping quarters. Public areas such as the dining room, lounge and bar are great areas to meet other guests and talk through the days’ exciting goings on.

The expedition team are experts in their own right as specialist geologists, botanists, marine and terrestrial biologists. These highly trained Naturalist guides are there to enhance the passengers experience, in fact many are also certified photo instructors to help capture the perfect shots of the beautiful landscapes and varied wildlife on offer.

Zodiac rides, snorkelling, hiking and kayaking are superb ways to get up close to the abundant wildlife on any Galapagos Cruise, whether it’s a snorkel with playful sea lions, a walk up to a volcano crater or watching the mating dance of the Blue-footed Booby. For those wishing to stay dry or who are not comfortable in the water the glass-bottom boat is an excellent benefit. The on board ROV is operated by the underwater specialist to showcase the marine life that is so renowned in the Galapagos.

Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate the Galapagos Islands into a greater Ecuador & Latin America holiday.
