Get up close with the rare and exquisite wildlife of the Galapagos, on land and in the sea. Snorkel among some of the world’s most majestic fish, or if you prefer to stay above sea level, witness them from a glass-bottomed boat. Explore and acquaint yourself with the ancient ruins of Machu Pichu on an exclusive sunrise hike to the Sun Gate. These are just a handful of the exclusive experiences you can have when sailing onboard a National Geographic Endeavour II cruise. National Geographic Endeavour II, originally sailing under the name Via Australis, was refurbished and added to Lindblad’s fleet in 2016. This amazing vessel offers incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to explore the exotic Galapagos Islands (and Machu Picchu on select itineraries) while accompanied by onboard experts who can transform your voyage into a revolutionary experience.

National Geographic Endeavour II boasts a laid-back yet spontaneous atmosphere. One very unique feature of National Geographic Endeavour II is that you can visit the bridge 24-hours a day and interact with the captain and ship officers, an experience you cannot find on many other ships. You will also discover a comfortable forward lounge with an outdoor terrace, an inviting bar, a well-stocked library with a great view and 24-hour self-serve beverage station, a shop offering unique handcrafted Ecuadorian items for sale, and a fitness center and spa so you can stay in tip-top shape while you travel. All accommodations have a large window or French balcony and are accentuated by soothing colors and luxurious amenities.

The fresh, sustainable and locally-sourced cuisine found aboard National Geographic Endeavour II is full of flavor and destined to melt in your mouth. Breakfast and lunch are usually served as buffets while dinner features sit-down service. Light lunches and barbecues are occasionally held on deck. Open seating dining is offered onboard National Geographic Endeavour II so you can where and with whom you want to dine. Don’t be surprised to find the ship’s officers, naturalists and guest speakers to join in on dining with you.
