If getting up close to the place that inspired Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species is on your life list of travel adventures, then an expedition to the Galápagos is authentic wish fulfillment.

Disembarking from our floating base camp, the luxury vessel National Geographic Endeavour II, you'll encounter endemic wildlife that lacks an instinctive fear of humans, explore a vibrant undersea, and observe diverse geological wonders with our guide, Rob Phillips, Fred and Nancy Morris Professor of Biophysics, Biology, and Physics.

Every day will deliver new adventures—kayak along rocky shores watching for passing sea turtles, snorkel with playful sea lions, hike lava fields crowded with basking marine iguanas, or take a sunset Zodiac cruise around islands teeming with birdlife.
