Information for private sailors

Logo Seven Seas Cruising Association
Being the Seven Seas Cruising Station in San Cristóbal we would like to give you some more information about traveling to and staying in Galapagos.

The whole Galápagos archipelago belongs to the Galápagos National Park. Therefore, we highly recommend familiarizing yourselves with the PNG rules prior to arrival at one of the local ports.

Important notes:

Vessels should have no more than 10 People on board. If the boat is in sailing condition and does not have a permit, the length of stay in the archipelago cannot exceed 21 days. With an appropriate permit from the respective embassies to carry out tourism, studies, volunteering or work on the islands, one can stay for up to 90 days and may receive permission to visit other ports within the archipelago.

If you wish to participate in tourism activities while in the Galápagos Islands, you will have to pay the Galápagos National Park (GNP) entrance fee. To enter the National Park adults must pay a onetime fee of US$100 and a onetime fee of US$ 50 for children under the age of 12. For those wishing to carry out tourism activities from their vessel, a fee of US$200/day per person must be paid.

Private yachts have to pay harbor fees and a police (immigration) fee. Your Agent will tell you more about.
