The National Geographic Endeavour carrying just 96 guests in 56 outside cabins, is a small ship that is superbly designed for expedition cruising in the Galapagos Islands. She is small enough to go where large ships couldn't possibly venture, yet large enough to operate in remote environments in complete comfort. The fleet of Zodiac landing craft carried on board extends the Endeavour's reach even farther, allowing you to venture off the ship almost anywhere, at a moment's notice - one of the keys to expedition travel. You'll also find sea kayaks for quiet personal exploration in the remote places the National Geographic Endeavour visits.
Choose the National Geographic Endeavour if you are an active and inquisitive traveler seeking to learn much more than just the names of Galapagos wildlife. The experts and equipment on board this true expedition ship provide the finest Galapagos intellectual and educational experience. As an expedition ship the Endeavour is not luxurious, so don't expect five star accommodations and ammenities. There are other luxury ships if this is your priority. But if your priority is the best expedition experience possible, with the best guides in the industry, and you are willing to pay the premium of such an experience, the National Geographic Endeavour is the right Galapagos ship for you.
