Visitors enjoy the Galapagos all year round.  However, the following are peak seasons and are the busiest in terms of visitors:  mid-December through to late January; mid-May through to mid-September.  For those interested in getting a glimpse of whales, June through to September off the western islands of Isabela & Fernandina are best.  For those wishing warmer waters & skies, November through to April are best.
All visitors arrive by air from either Quito or Guayaquil on mainland Ecuador.  Flight space priority goes first to those taking a cruise, followed by those not taking a cruise (i.e., staying in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz to do daily land-based scuba diving or individual day tours from Santa Cruz).
 
The majority of visitors take a cruise (either a 4-night or 7-night cruise) that will allow them to visit more remote islands.
  • Regular live-aboard cruise;
  • Live-aboard cruise with part-time scuba diving;
  • Live-aboard cruise with full-time scuba diving;
  • Land (or hotel) based activites from Puerto Ayora.
Costs
Yachts
Hotels in Puerto Ayora
There are three basic costs involved with visiting the Galapagos Islands:
  • Return airfare
  • Galapagos National Park entrance fee
  • Accomodation (hotel or yacht).
There are over 100 yachts operating in the Galapagos Islands, from small, economic boats to large, luxury cruise ships.  There are, however, a limited number of yachts that are very popular because of value for the dollar (i.e., quality of food, cabins, safety, cleanliness, guide etc).
For those wishing to either extend their stay in Galapagos before or after the cruise or wish to only do land-based tours from Puerto Ayora, there is a large number of accomodation options to select from.
