Galapagos Islands

Catamaran Yacht Charter - Pacific Ocean - Galapagos Islands

On the passage from Panama to Tahiti Neverland will make a short stop on the Galapagos Archipelago. This group of 13 volcanic islands near the equator is known for their tame and unique wildlife with iguanas, sea lions and sea birds.

The Galapagos Islands belong to Ecuador and the language is Spanish. But English is widely spoken. 6000 people live on the islands. The climate is equatorial. During the months of April when Neverland will stay there it is the better season with light winds.

For a yacht it is very difficult today to get permission to cruise around these islands and if you get permission it will be very bureaucratic and costly. A one weeks cruising with 6 people would cost about 10 000 $ of fees including an official guide who has to stay on board for the time you cruise there. Therefore Neverland cannot be chartered on the Galapagos. We will just stop here for 3 or 4 days on our passage to the Marquesas.
