Enjoy a sunny, action-packed week in the Galápagos with the family. With multiple adventures each day on land and undersea—including options for walks and hikes, kayaking, paddle-boarding and snorkeling—grandparents, parents and children will be assured of the full Lindblad-National Geographic Galápagos experience. Learn about and delight in all the archipelago’s offerings.
Create memories as you snorkel among shimmering fish, sea turtles, penguins, and playful sea lions. This trip is filled with opportunities to discover, bond, and gain an intimate understanding of the environmental systems at play in this lush setting.
Encounter abundant wildlife
Blue-footed boobies. Flightless cormorants. Darwin’s finches. Pink flamingos. Sea lions on beaches or gamboling underwater. Giant tortoises grazing in the highlands. The wildlife of Galápagos is legendary for its uniqueness and lack of fear, allowing you the rare experience of being treated as an equal in the wild world. Each island contains endemic species, and you’ll have the opportunity to see a panoply of Galápagos’ creatures in their native habitats—on land and in the sea.
Every day is active and engaging
You’ll be able to snorkel nearly every day. Each day you’ll have the option to walk, hike, kayak, or Zodiac cruise, and to join a different naturalist as you choose: there are no assigned groups.
Travel in excellent company
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, three handpicked naturalists, including a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist. Their knowledge and passion for the islands is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
