Information for yachts that would like to stop or pass by the Galapagos Islands
Friday, November 3, 2011
You have three ways to visit Galapagos:
a. Only arrive and stay in the first port of call (could be Puerto Ayora, or Puerto Baquerizo or Puerto Villamil.
b. A permit for sail among the inhabited ports.
c. A permit for sail among the inhabited ports, and also for ask for an
itinerary in the protected areas of the National Park.
And for a good calculation:
d. How many gross tonnage is your sailboat ( gross tonnage )
e. How many people are onboard: ( 4 persons)
Knowing this information I can say you what is the more convenient for you (the necessity or not for to get a permit in advance).
