    The Galapagos Master embarks and disembarks at the island of San Cristóbal. Book your international flight into and out of Quito or Guayaquil International Airport in Ecuador from where there are daily domestic flights to San Cristóbal (SCY). Our representative will meet you at the airport. Embarkation time is depending on flight arrivals; disembarkation at the end of the cruise will be just before 10 am allowing plenty of time for your onward domestic connection. International flights are possible to some destinations on the day of disembarkation but please ensure you allow plenty of time for transfers and check in.

    FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

    What should I bring with me?

    Liveaboard lifestyle is relaxed and informal. Essential items include T-shirts, shorts, swim wear, long trousers / sarong/ long skirt, sturdy footwear for island visits and a warm jacket or pullover for cooler nights. Shower gel is provided on board, however guests should bring any hair care or personal beauty products they require, along with sunscreen. We have a fully stocked first aid kit on board, but guests should bring any personal prescription medications with them (with doctor’s note).

    Must I pay National Park fees?

    Yes. All visitors to the Galapagos are required to pay fees to enter the national park. These consist of US$100 Galapagos National Park Fee, to be paid in cash upon arrival at San Cristóbal Airport, and US$25 Ingala Transit Control Card, which is to be paid at Quito or Guayaquil Airport, depending on where you board the aircraft to arrive at Galapagos. If you choose our attractive domestic flights package, the Transit Control Card will be included, as well as extra luggage allowance.

    I am travelling alone. Must I pay a single supplement or may I share a cabin?

    For solo travelers we offer 2 options. You may choose to have a cabin for yourself for which we charge a single supplement of 80% of the cabin cost. However if you wish to share a cabin, we will place you in a twin cabin with a member of the same sex. We do not mix cabins without express permission of both guests.

    How can I pay for extras and tips onboard?

    We accept payment in cash USD on board Galapagos Master. We can take payment in Euro, GBP, and AUD but be aware that due to poor local exchange rates in the Galapagos, we strongly suggest that you bring cash USD into Galapagos with you for any payments on both land and boat. Please note that we cannot accept any card payments on Galapagos Master. Guests are advised to bring sufficient cash USD for any optional extras and tips.

    Do I need dive insurance?

    Yes. All divers travelling aboard the Galapagos Master must ensure they are fully covered for all diving accident and emergency situations, including coverage for air evacuation. We also strongly advise our guests to obtain comprehensive travel insurance to cover against unforeseeable delays and potential missed flight connections. A combination dive and travel insurance, which includes the option for additional liveaboard cover, may be booked through Master Liveaboards or online through DiveAssure.

    Time zone

    The local time in mainland Ecuador is 5 hours behind UTC (GMT), whereas the Galapagos is 6 hours behind UTC (GMT).

Passport holders of most Western and Asian countries will be issued with a visa on arrival into Ecuador that allows for stays of up to 90 days, please make sure that your passport has validity of at least 6 months beyond the period you intend to stay in Ecuador. If you are travelling with medication please bring your physician’s prescription with you. Check for further information.

    Climate and weather

    The Galapagos Islands straddle the equator and weather is roughly divided into two seasons; ‘warm’ and ‘dry’. The warm season, generally begins in December has average daytime temperature of 23°C (75°F) with daily rain showers and cloudier skies. The dry season, typically begins in May/June, bringing cooler temperatures with an average of 21°C (70°F) with local rain showers generally confined to the highlands of the larger islands. Evening temperatures can drop to just 15°C (59°F) therefore we advise guests to bring warm clothing for the cooler evenings.
