Boat description

The M/C Endemic offers a stylish and luxurious way to explore the Galapagos Islands. With a maximum of 16 passengers, your expert naturalist guide will take you on two daily excursions and provide fascinating briefings prior to each exploration. 

One of the major joys of Galapagos Islands cruising is eating the fabulous Ecuadorian cuisine al fresco; one of the highlights of a cruise on the Endemic. The spacious public areas and private balconies offer the chance to relax and admire the stunning scenery.

The fabulous cuisine is created by chefs who are passionate about their country yet ensuring your tastes and any special requirements are fully taken care of. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style and dinner is normally served.
