I am currently planning a circumnavigation starting next year. I have heard various stories about the need for special permits to go to the Galapagos Islands and that they can take up to two years to get. Does anyone have any experience of this or know where I might get accurate information. Thanks

Hi Johnathon,

I can't help you with specifics on the Galapagos as the permit system appears to be a moveable feast. However if you google 'Galapagos Islands Cruising Permit', you will get many hits, some as recent as April this year. Hopefully someone will post good info here for you, but if not, google may at least give you the contact point for the GI/Ecuadorian authorities.

Best of luck

David.

Jonathan,

The following link may be a useful start:

A side link has a report from someone who visited last month (May 07)

This includes the contact details for an agent and the cost of different options.

cheers

Rob
