Cruising in Galapagos - update on fees involved as of Feb 2008

Countries: Galapagos

We are a family on a sail boat cruising across the Pacific and stopped in Galapagos, at one of the 3 ports where you are allowed to stop. As it was difficult to find information on current clearing in procedures for Galapagos, we decided to share the following information:

You have to use an agent to clear in ($US150), as well as pay park entrance fees ($US100/adult), ($US50/kid aged 2-12), custom/immigration fees ($US30) and international port fees (light and bouy fees), depending on the tonnage of your vessel, and fumigation fees.

Once you have cleared in at a port, you are not allowed to sail to another port, except if you get a special cruising permit (at additional cost).

There are many activities, tours and excursions available, all at additional cost. For the low-budget cruiser, there is good snorkling, swimming, hiking and awesome wild life to appreciate.
