Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic pioneered expedition travel to the remarkable Galápagos Islands more than 50 years ago. Today, we lead expeditions year-round to this magical archipelago famed for its vibrant wildlife— whether it’s giant tortoises, playful penguins, or charismatic sea lions. Enjoy new adventures each day, including walks and hikes, kayaking, and snorkeling, in the company of local guides, certified photo instructors, and naturalists. Our small, state-of-the-art expedition ships, the National Geographic Islander II and National Geographic Endeavour II, serve as your basecamp, with 26 to 52 elegant staterooms to recharge after a day of immersive exploration. Each vessel is equipped with exploration tools like Zodiacs and kayaks so you can experience the unforgettable magic of the Galápagos to the fullest.
