Don’t let her accommodating public and private spaces, the posh quiet and rich collection of books in her Library, or the lavish observation space on her decks fool you — the National Geographic Endeavour is an expedition ship, designed for discovery and active exploration, not just passive passing-by. The Endeavour heads out equipped with a fleet of Zodiacs, enabling you to make landfall in all the remote and riveting locations that beckon! Kayaking opportunities are offered wherever possible and frequent walks or hikes.

There’s no age limit to the adventurous opportunities — anyone who feels fit and is interested is welcome to participate. And because navigation is an underlying theme, the "Open Bridge" policy will provide you with one of the more gratifying memories of the many you’ll make. The spontaneity and flexibility that characterizes our expedition style means there is literally something new to experience and enjoy daily.
