The 96 guest National Geographic Endeavour offers year round 10-day expeditions in Galapagos.  With an expert staff of naturalists on every expedition, guests can gravitate towards the team members whose interests in ornithology, geology, photography or undersea life mirror their own.  Join them on hikes, Zodiac rides, or on deck for a spontaneous wildlife encounter.  Swim and snorkel with sea lions, penguins and sea turtles; explore caves and shoreline, and hike among blue-footed boobies and marine iguanas.

The free air offer is available on bookings made now through December 31, 2012 on select departures as noted, is subject to availability, and is valid for new bookings only.  Rates begin at $4,990 per person based on double occupancy for a Category 1 cabin.  Click here for reservations or additional information on Lindblad Expeditions’ voyages to some of the most beautiful and fascinating places on earth or call 1-800-EXPEDITION.
