Description:
The National Geographic Endeavour is a small expedition ship operated by Lindblad Expeditions for cruising in remote areas, particularly the polar regions.



The ship was originally a fishing trawler built in 1966 as Marburg, and converted to carry passengers in 1983. First named North Star, then Caledonian Star, she received her present name in June 2001.

On March 2, 2001, the ship was struck by a 30-metre-high rogue wave while crossing the Drake Passage; the wave smashed the windows of the bridge and ruined the navigation and communications equipment, but did not cripple the ship. She was assisted by the Argentine Navy ocean fleet tug ARA Alferez Sobral and reached Ushuaia three days later

Other ships operated by Linblad Expeditions are the Polaris, Sea Bird, and Sea Lion.
