Flight costs are approximately £425 per person but we will endeavour to secure any discounts or special offers for you.
Galapagos National Park fees: These are currently US$100 per person and payable locally but subject to change.
Transit Control Card for the Galapagos: Currently US$20 per person and payable locally, subject to change.
The Galapagos National Park authorities do not allow boats with more than 100 passengers to operate in the archipelago. All boats have to file their itineraries with the authorities, who strictly control the numbers of people arriving at any one place at any time. Galapagos cruises usually have two or three landings per day which will be either be ‘dry’ or ‘wet’ (directly onto land or into shallow water). There are just 54 land sites and 62 scuba-diving or snorkelling sites in the Galapagos Islands and small groups are allowed to visit in time-limited slots of two-to-four hours. If you are on one of the bigger ships you will disembark into small groups for landings. All groups are accompanied by naturalist guides, licensed by the Galapagos National Park authorities.
Extras, tips and gratuities: Some boats charge for drinks and may charge a corkage fee for any wine you bring yourselves. You should also budget for ancillary items such as purchases, internet charges, getting laundry done and other matters of a personal nature. We will provide advice for tips which are usually shared between guide and crew.
Best Time to Travel
The best months for the Galapagos Islands are December to March, when the seas are at their calmest. You should avoid September as there is a sea mist at this time. In fact a lot of Galapagos cruise ships go into dry dock at this time of the year for repairs and refurbishment before the new season starts.

Galapagos cruises range from 3 nights to 2 weeks but most people stay for between four days and a week. Cruise ships tend to operate on a two-week circuit around the Galapagos archipelago with 7 nights in the Central and Southern Islands, for example, followed by 7 nights in the Western and Northern Islands. Shorter cruises of three, four or five nights will depend on the itinerary within their two-week circuit.
We book a variety of Galapagos cruises ranging from luxury ships with a large choice of cabins and decks and which have facilities catering for up to 100 passengers to smaller yachts, catamarans and sailing ships with capacity from just 7 cabins on the smallest boats (i.e. 14 passengers) up to 24 cabins (48 passengers). Please contact us for other Galapagos yachts and cruises.
In addition to Galapagos cruises, we book a range of accommodation on the inhabited islands of San Cristobal, Santa Cruz, Floreana and Isabela from private villas, de luxe hideaways and luxury camps to mid-range hotels. Hotels can be booked as an alternative to a Galapagos cruise or as an extension. Please contact us for further information about the hotels we book.
