Highlights

Guests sit and observe birds at Española Island, Galapagos, Ecuador
  • Experience all Galápagos offers in just over one week, with departures on Saturday and Thursday

  • Snorkel and kayak among colorful fish, sea turtles, penguins, and playful sea lions, and walk among colonies of wildlife and seabirds unfazed by your presence

  • With National Geographic Global Explorers, our exclusive program for kids and teens, families may engage in activities together or follow their own individual interests

  • Maximize your time in the islands with options for exploration every day including hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, and more

  • Add a three-night post-expedition extension in Quito, Ecuador

  • Have more time? Take back-to-back voyages and see more of the archipelago—because no single site in Galápagos National Park can be visited by the same ship more than once in two weeks, consecutive voyages call on different islands.
