Booking and payment policies

Bookings

  • We recommend that you book Galapagos boats at least 6 months ahead of the departure date. Please note that Galapagos is one of the most visited places in the world and considering that it is a National Park there are certain rules that regulate the number of passengers that enter the islands, in order to protect this unique ecosystem.

  • To confirm your booking, a 30% deposit is required. Full payment is required 60 days prior to the excursion departure date.
  • The prices quoted may be subject to change due to: currency fluctuation, fuel costs, local transport costs, taxes or fees for services such as landing taxes or embarkation, or dis-embarking fees at ports or airports, governmental actions. We will absorb amounts of up to 2% of the trip cost. Amounts over this will be passed on to you, though if this means more than a 10% increase in your trip cost you are entitled to cancel your booking and claim a full refund, providing that such a claim is made within 7 days of notification.

 

Payments

You can make payments with:

  • Cash (US dollars)
  • Travellers cheques
  • PayPalBy credit card through Pay-Pal, adding an additional 6.5% to the total cost of the services.
  • A wire transfer or deposit in US Dollars into our US and Ecuador bank accounts.
