ITINERARIES

When visiting the Galapagos Islands for one week there are tradeoffs regarding the landing sites you can and can’t see, in a place where one can encounter as great a variation crossing from one side of a bay or island to another, as traversing the entire archipelago. This has always been the case. Recently the Galapagos National Park decided to reduce the environmental impact on its 40 + visitor landing sites by requiring that yachts wait 14 days before returning to a given National Park visitor site. As a result of this ruling each of our yachts will operate different itineraries. 

If you only have a week to spend in the Galapagos you will be happy to know that there is no better or worse itinerary, just different.
