Where You Can Go - Zones

Five of the islands are inhabited and, beyond the urban centres, some land is used for agriculture and is accessible by residents or visitors.

Galapagos - Zones

Urban and Agricultural Areas

You are free to visit the towns and areas that historically have been used by the local population for agriculture. These are mostly in the highlands and feature many attractions that you can access by bicycle, taxi or bus.

Rules for Visiting Protected Areas of the Galapagos National Park

For the sake of the Islands and the continued health of its many unique inhabitants, it is essential for visitors to use common sense and consideration at all times and particularly when visiting the Protected Areas of the Galapagos Islands.. To this end, the Galapagos National Park has issued a set of “Rules for Visitors of the Galapagos Protected Areas”.

Visiting the Protected Areas - By Boat

Daily-Tour Boats make day-trips to “visit-sites” like Punta Pitt, Isla Lobos and Cerro Brujo (from San Cristobal) or Bartolomé, Santa Fé, Seymour and others (from Santa Cruz). These boats take 10 to 20 passengers.

The Daily-tour boats let you see see some of the most popular visit-sites, without the expense of a cruise. Most boats offer snorkelling opportunities on these visits and some are licensed for diving.

Day-trips cost about $90 to $500 each depending on the destination, boat and activities.

Ask us how best to fit a day-trip or two into your itinerary.

Cruise Boats - Conduct 3 to 15 day cruises around the islands. They vary in size from 16 passenger yachts and catamarans to 100 passenger ships.

While we have placed clients on larger boats, we recommend the intimacy and reduced environmental impact of the smaller boats which cater to no more than 16 or 20 passengers.

The cost of a cruise can vary anywhere from $1,400 (budget 4 day cruise) to $6,000 (luxury 8 day cruise). And there is a bewildering assortment of boats and itineraries to choose from.

While there are several excellent operators and boats, booking a cruise in the Galapagos can be a real gamble. Read here why you should book your next cruise through Galeodan.
