GALAPAGOS TRAVEL TIPS - 加拉帕戈斯旅游小贴士
For the Galapagos trips, besides the tour days you choose, you need to allow at least 2 extra days and nights in mainland Ecuador, either Quito or Guayaquil cities, 1 day for the International inbound flight prior to the Galapagos departure, which are in the mornings and another day, for the International outbound flight.


Galapagos National Park Tax
To be paid upon arrival in Galapagos ($ 100 USD) plus $10 transit control card.

Cruise rate includes
Accommodations aboard, all meals, Island sightseeing and lectures by naturalist guide, round trip transfers between airport and yacht. Incidentals to be paid at the end of each cruise in cash.

What to pack
Life aboard the yachts is very informal. Casual, comfortable clothing is a must! Bring shorts, bathing suits, preferably cotton shirts, 2 pairs of good rubber-soled walking shoes, windbreaker jacket, wide brimmed hat and a back pack to carry camera, film (plenty!), sun glasses and sun screen.

On board
The normal daily schedule consist of a shore excursion right after breakfast, return aboard for lunch and perhaps a "siesta" before the afternoon shore excursion. After dinner your naturalist guide will brief you on the islands to be visited the following day.

On shore
You are ferried from the yacht to shore via small boats called "Pangas". Landings are either "dry" or "wet", where you might have to wade ashore in shallow water. At all times you are accompanied by your naturalist guide. The terrain is often rough and passengers should be in a good physical condition.

Itinerary
May be subject to change due to weather conditions or National Park Directives. The captain may deviate from the published itinerary for any reason he deems advisable. Chandelier Touring reserves the right to change passengers from one yacht to another of equal category.

Tipping
Tipping is at the discretion of the passenger. A "tip box" is provided for the general crew. Guides are tipped separately.
