Galapagos Islands 07/05/2020

The following is a representative sample of the islands we may visit during your week onboard: Bartolomé: This is an enchanting landscape where lava, mangroves, and golden sand converge. Great walks and views abound, with a chance to snorkel with Galápagos penguins. Santiago: Santiago offers close encounters with Galápagos fur seals along with an opportunity to study the inhabitants of the island's countless tide pools. Santa Cruz: Home to the Charles Darwin Research station; learn about the science done here and visit the neighboring captive breeding program for endangered species of Galápagos giant tortoises run by their partners in conservation, the Galápagos National Park Service. Isabela: A small black sand beach offers wonderful morning swimming. Enjoy a more challenging hike over rugged shoreline and a shorter walk within an iguana colony. Kayaking and deep water snorkeling opportunities are on offer. Fernandina: This is the youngest island in the Galápagos and one of the most pristine tropical islands left on earth. Look forward to hikes over relatively recent lava flows, and spot marine iguanas, flightless cormorants, and Sally Lightfoot crabs. Floreana: Snorkel among sea lions in the clear waters off Champion Islet. We may also find flamingos, pintail ducks, and various shorebirds. Hike to a pristine white-sand beach, a favorite nesting site for sea turtles. Española: The exclusive home to waved albatross (seasonal) and particularly colorful marine iguanas, Española is also a paradise for Darwin's finches, sea lions galore, and the famous blue-footed boobies. Snorkel and stroll along the island's lovely beaches. (B,L,D Daily),

Lindblad Expeditions: National Geographic Endeavour II
National Geographic Endeavour II is a purpose-built expedition ship that first sailed in 2005. After undergoing extensive renovation this year, she will redeploy to Galápagos. She is exceptionally nimble and maneuverable, with great viewing from all public spaces, large windows in cabins and suites, state-of-the-art tools for exploration, and a fast, seamless twin Zodiac loading platform.

Endeavour II accommodates 96 guests in 42 double cabins and 11 solo cabins. With an open, covered top deck and large windows in the lounge, you'll discover plenty of viewing spaces for observing the incredible wildlife and landscapes of Galápagos.

Dining
The dining room accommodates the entire expedition community in a single seating, and many tables accommodate an odd number of people to encourage easy mingling. Independent travelers will find a welcome everywhere. Dress is always casual and the general ambience is relaxed and informal.

Every meal is a delight and often a discovery on the region you’re exploring. All food served aboard is fresh, local, and delicious; sourced from suppliers that share the values of sustainability whenever possible, and often inflected with regional flavors.

Breakfast is served buffet-style, with eggs and other dishes made to order. Enjoy freshly-baked pastries, and a bounty of fresh, tropical fruits and fresh-squeezed fruit juices. Lunch is most often buffet, though occasionally served family style. Dinners are plated and served in the dining room, except for the evening when an extravagant barbecue is held on Endeavour II’s open deck. Whether a meal is buffet-style or served, the gracious waitstaff is ever-present to attend to your every need. During lunch and dinner your expedition leader, naturalists, and any guest speakers will join you for meals, and during breakfast they often sit together to plan the logistics of the exciting day ahead.

Public Spaces
  • Bridge: You may come to consider the bridge another public room, as guests are encouraged to visit the officers whenever safe navigation permits. Learn about navigation from the officers, and share their enthusiasm for the extraordinary wildlife of Galápagos.
  • Lounge: The lounge and bar are the main social hub of the ship, and where all the briefings, photography talks, and guest speaker presentations take place. With sweeping windows over the bow and large windows on three sides, the room offers ample natural light and dramatic views. The lounge is also the scene of convivial cocktail hour where you’ll share your photos or stories with fellow guests. You’ll gather here nightly for the Lindblad-National Geographic tradition of Recap where naturalists share stories and answer questions about the day’s events. A variety of beverages are available for purchase including beer, cocktails, spirits, and wines by the glass or bottle. Sodas and juices are complimentary. The bar is typically open from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and from 5 p.m. until closing. Board games and puzzles are also available.
  • Library: Visit the ship’s cozy library where a dramatic wall of windows overlooks the sea. A limited collection of books includes fiction, regional guides, and reference books on Galápagos wildlife. 24-hour beverage service, including coffee, espresso, a variety of teas, sodas, water, ice, and cookies are also available in the library.
  • Gym: If you’re looking for some additional activity beyond hiking the islands and snorkeling the undersea, there’s a well-equipped gym aboard. Take advantage of treadmills, exercise bikes, an elliptical machine, and free weights. Large windows in the gym ensure you don’t miss any opportunities to spot wildlife.
  • The Global Gallery: A celebration of the talent of local artisans, the global gallery showcases and sells items made by the people of Galápagos and Ecuador. You may find hand-carved wooden wildlife figures and masks, jewelry crafted from recycled glass beads, woven sun hats and locally made bags, locally grown coffee and avocado oil, plus books by some of your naturalists. The items in the global market evolve as we meet and work with talented locals.

You’ll find National Geographic Endeavour II ideally sized for your days exploring Galápagos. She is expansive enough to offer private spaces to gather with new friends. And her shared public areas like the lounge are intimate enough to foster a convivial expedition community.

You’ll find abundant comfortable spaces to take in the scenery and relax after an active, but exhilarating, day ashore. You’ll quickly know your way around, with the ship feeling like a friendly boutique hotel. With ample deck space and public rooms, however, you can choose to withdraw to a cozy corner by yourself or join others for an engaging conversation and refreshing drink.

Shipboard Policies
