The Endemic, built in 2018, is a sleek, modern cruise ship with nine suites, including one cabin for solo travelers. The contemporary elegance of the bright white and soft wood tones of the interior and exterior spaces is the perfect complement to the brilliant blue waters of the Galapagos Islands.
Life Aboard The Endemic Cruise Ship Galapagos
Imagine waking up in your spacious cabin and stepping out onto your private balcony to watch the sunrise over the Galapagos Islands. While aboard the Endemic, you will feel at home on a ship that balances luxurious private spaces with entertaining social areas. The sky deck’s whirlpool is the ideal spot to relax while watching exotic species, such as frigatebirds, fly by. Be sure to ask for a cocktail or a tasty non-alcoholic beverage from the indoor or outdoor bar before settling in for your soak.
For a drier way to enjoy some wildlife spotting, ease into a comfortable chair on the main deck’s sun terrace at the bow of the ship. It’s the perfect place to watch everything from sea lions to blue-footed boobies. Fuel all of your adventures with meals from locally-sourced ingredients expertly prepared by the ships’ chef. But your favorite meal just might be the BBQ that is served alfresco on the sky deck.
Excursions From Your Endemic Galapagos Cruise
The Endemic offers cruises of four, five, six, and eight days, ensuring there is something for every wildlife lover, regardless of the amount of time you have to devote. The activities presented during each itinerary are carefully curated to allow all 16 guests aboard the ship to have up-close-and-personal experiences with Galapagos’ native species while also protecting the fragile ecosystem.
A highly-trained guide, certified by the Galapagos National Park, will lead hikes, snorkeling excursions, beach walks, and dingy rides. Highlights of your time may include snorkeling with penguins on Bartholomew Island, a visit to a turtle breeding center on Santa Cruz Island, and a hike to see flamingoes in a lagoon on Floreana Island.
Galapagos Explorations For All Ages
It’s never too early or too late to make the dream of a Galapagos cruise come true. The Endemic offers facilities and programs for every stage of life. Celebrate retirement in style on the senior-friendly vessel, which has few stairs and easily accessible decks and public areas. If swimming and hiking aren’t for you, activities during your Endemic Galapagos cruise can be tailored to your lifestyle.
The crew of the Endemic is also delighted to welcome children aboard. A Galapagos cruise is an excellent way to introduce young people to the joys of travel while teaching important lessons about environmental responsibility. The crew takes pride in showing children the area’s wildlife, and there are kid-friendly DVDs in the TV room. The chef will even create kid’s meals that are sure to please even the pickiest eaters.
If you are celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary, or the start of a well-earned retirement, the crew of the Endemic will make the moment special with décor and treats. But, why wait for a special occasion? Every day of an Endemic Galapagos cruise is a celebration.
