“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 uniquely fascinating and magical. You’ll discover the diverse habitats across this legendary volcanic archipelago aboard our well-equipped expedition ship, the 96-guest National Geographic Endeavour II. We’ll use our onboard fleet of nimble Zodiacs and kayaks for up-close explorations. Gain remarkable insights from our knowledgeable naturalist team.
