Galapagos National Park Fee
The National Park Fee helps fund organizations that manage and preserve the islands.
Although Ecuador lies on the equator, the country has a wide range of climates due to the varying altitudes. The city of Quito, located at 9,350', has an average temperature of 55 to 75 degrees. The cold Humboldt Current flowing from the Antarctic modifies the Galapagos Islands weather. Fall and winter months tend to be drier with cooler water. Summer months tend to have more chance of warm water and some rain. Days year-round are warm; shorts and a t-shirt are fine. Nights will often be cool aboard the ship. For extended snorkeling, a thin wet suit is recommended.
REI Adventures partners with Ecoventura for our Galapagos Islands Cruise programs. Listed departure dates are not sold exclusively by REI Adventures and are not sold exclusively to REI Adventures travelers.
Rates available upon request. Please see addtional detail under "Single Cabins" above.
