IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • All the itineraries are subject to change without notice due various factors: safety, weather, mechanical breakdown, unforeseen emergencies, and the discretion of the Captain, Guide, and the Galapagos National Park.
  • We will not be held responsible for any refunds whatsoever for changes to the printed or scheduled itinerary
  • Our cruises sailing dates are guaranteed to depart regardless of the number of passengers booked for a certain date.  In case any circumstances of major force would happen, then we would change you to a boat of similar characteristics, same dates, and same category or upgrade you to a better boat with no extra cost.
USEFUL TIPS:
  • The ideal tour length is the 7night/8days cruise.  Since at least part of the first and last day of the tour will be spent at the airport, the shorter tours also spend less time sailing around the islands.
  • We normally suggest our clients to book their international flight at least two nights before their Galapagos cruise, this way in case you loose a connection, your flight is delayed or the weather conditions are not appropriate for landing you don't jeopardize your trip to the islands.
  • Try to avoid making international connections the same day as the flight from the Galapagos Islands may be delayed or changed to an alternate flight
