Galapagos Photo Cruises
Any small ship Galapagos cruise will provide plenty of photographic opportunities, from the varied landscapes to up-close wildlife encounters. However, there are select photo cruises that are geared towards photographers.
Photography tours and workshops offer hands-on learning experiences with professional photographers in incredible and iconic locations. And small ship photo cruises are the best way to explore intimate, out of the way locations with abundant wildlife, unique plant life and amazing scenic landscapes. Whether you are into landscape photography, wildlife photography, or simply nature photography, you'll receive once-in-a-lifetime opportunties onboard a small ship photography cruise.
Galapagos Photo Cruises
A Galapagos cruise aboard National Geographic Endeavour or National Geographic Islander offers all the hallmarks of a Lindblad Expedition, plus the expansive feeling that comes with voyaging aboard this stately ship. Access to five onboard Naturalists gives you the freedom to gravitate towards any of the expedition team members whose interests in ornithology, geology or undersea life mirror your own. Join them on hikes, Zodiac rides, or the ship’s deck during one of the spontaneous, thrilling wildlife encounters when the Captain spots a pod of orcas or a blue whale and changes course to pull alongside them.

Acclaimed photographer and naturalist Tui de Roy spent most of her life living in the Galápagos Islands, and her photography books of the archipelago are famous.
