Itinerary Notes

Please Note: From January 8, 2019 to February 8, 2019, as per the Galapagos National Park Directorate and Galapagos Conservancy, North Seymour and Mosquera Island will be closed to visitors. The goal of this closure is to carry out a planned eradication of introduced species to safeguard the ecological integrity of the unique ecosystems and biodiversity of these islands. For all departures that fall during that time period, and a short panga ride along the North Seymour and Mosquera coast and a trip along the coast of Daphne to spot wildlife will be substituted, however travellers will not be able to disembark.
