“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. Each island is diversely fascinating and magical. You’ll discover 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 natural wonders up-close. Gain remarkable insights from our experienced expedition team. Hike among the wildlife; explore the vibrant sea—snorkeling and swimming daily with sea lions, sea turtles, and penguins; and capture these experiences in your best photos ever with the help of our certified photo instructor.
