Islander to Galapagos
Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic

Best for this if money is no object...

www.guanguiltagua.com [email protected] for

galavengalapagos.com sales from $600 on a 2 for one for me.

Careful with the many scammers on the boards particularly

on Tripadvertizer where spouses of agents/owners tout the

clueless newbie out of thousands for crappy roach/puke boats

like Archipel Eden Fragats Samba avoid... CAVEAT EMPTOR!

always pay with CC never wire money and insuremytrip.com

Happy Hunting!

I have not been on the NG Endeavour but was recently on the Galapagos Explorer II. very happy with everything. You can see my trip report here here.

http://www.fodors.com/community/crui...-galapagos.cfm

I have been told that the NG charges a bit more as it has the "brand". Other option would be Celebrity Xpedition. There are smaller baots but they will not have similar amenities or service.

Question: ages and physical condition of the grand daughter and the grand mother. It could be important if you want maximum enjoyment and get the most out of it.
