Tour Description 

A little world within itself,” as Darwin described it, where life-altering encounters with animals–curious, or sublimely indifferent to our presence–happen like nowhere else on earth.  It’s magical. Each island is different and diversely fascinating. And you’ll explore the islands and habitats of this legendary volcanic archipelago aboard our intimate expedition ship, National Geographic Endeavour II, waking each day to fresh experiences. We’ll use our onboard fleet of nimble Zodiacs and kayaks to explore up-close and personally. Gain fascinating insights from our dedicated expedition team. Hike among the wildlife. Explore the vibrant sea —snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, and swimming daily with sea lions, sea turtles, and penguins. And, capture your experience in your best photos ever—with the help of our certified photo instructor.

  • Special permits allow us to kayak and stand-up paddleboard along the coastlines and in peaceful coves teeming with wildlife
  • Be amazed by the undersea life without even getting wet via our glass-bottomed boat
