Q: Where are the Galapagos Islands?
A: The Galapagos Islands (or Archipelago de Colon) is a Province of Ecuador located 500 miles (800 kilometers) west of the Ecuadorian coast. They lie directly on the equator.
Q: What is the climate like?
A: As the Galapagos Islands lie directly on the equator, you can expect it to be warm for most of the year. The hottest season is generally from January to April with average temperatures ranging from a low of 70 to a high of 84 F (22 - 31 C). It is during this period that you may expect afternoon thundershowers. During a severe El Nino, you can expect rain or thundershowers at any time. From April to December is considered the "cool" (and dry) season with average temperatures ranging from a low of 68 to a high of 82 F (19 27 C). During this time of year you may encounter "garua" (misty rain) early in the morning and in the highlands of Santa Cruz and San Cristobal.
Q: When is the best time to travel to the Galapagos Islands?
A: Anytime is a good time! During the "hot" season with it's frequent afternoon rain showers the islands are generally much greener and the land birds most active. It is also during this period that the ocean temperature is warmer for swimming and snorkeling. During the "cool" season the land birds and sea mammals are most active. This is the best time for observing courtship displays in the sea birds. No matter what time of year you visit the islands, you will always find the wildlife activity to be absolutely amazing!
Q: How do we get there?
A: From North America there are daily flights via Miami and Houston to Quito and Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Q: Can you arrange our air to Ecuador?
A: We do not arrange any international air from North to South America. We recommend that you check for these flights directly with Continental or American airlines.
Q: How do we get to the Galapagos Islands from Quito and Guayaquil?
A: Flights to Galapagos depart daily from both Quito and Guayaquil. We will arrange the Galapagos flight for you. The owners of the boats in Galapagos block book spaces on these flights to ensure our passengers are on the flight to meet the boat. You will fly to Galapagos in the morning of first day of the cruise and return to the mainland in the afternoon of the last day of the cruise.
Q: May we fly to Galapagos from Quito and just back to Guayaquil (or vice versa)?
A: Yes, we would be able to arrange that for you.
Q: Are all your prices in US dollars?
A: All of our rates are quoted in US dollars.
Q: When do we have to pay?
A: A 20% deposit is required at the time you decide to confirm your reservation and the balance is due 60 days before departure (with a few exceptions).
Q: What form of payment do you accept?
A: We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Payment may also be made by electronic bank transfer (wire).
Q: How often do the sailing yachts sail?
A: The sailing yachts will sail when there is enough wind to do so, but will usually travel under power (with or without sails). Please bear in mind that from January to March is the doldrums on the equator and there is usually not enough wind to set the sails. In any case, all of the sailing yachts will travel under power most of the time and cruise as fast as most of the motor yachts.
Q: What is included in the rates for the yachts and ships?
A: The rates for the ship or yacht includes accommodation aboard the ship or yacht, all meals, island sightseeing, all guide and lecture services, transfers in the islands and between the airport and yacht in Galapagos. Itineraries are subject to change without notice (for safety, environmental or any other reasons).how do i get rid of the google chrome inbox helper Meaning of who dey?
