outerwear for the Galapagos cruise

Traveling to the Galapagos Islands in the cooler months is incredibly rewarding since it increases an adventurous traveler’s chances of encountering penguins, dolphins, and other diverse marine life. Of course, “cool” is a relative term, since the temperature in the Galapagos hovers around a comfortable 70 degrees year-round. While there’s no “off season” in the Islands, travelers may welcome a hat and jacket in the evenings.


The items detailed in this video are frequently needed when it gets cooler in the Galapagos Islands during the evenings, which is the time you will experience more breezes as you cruise to another location. Please note that the specific items we detail in each section of this video have been carefully selected to enhance your Galapagos experience.

HATS, JACKETS AND OTHER OUTERWEAR FOR THE GALAPAGOS

The items detailed in this section are frequently needed when it gets cooler in the Islands during the evenings, which is the time you will experience more breezes as you cruise to another location. Also, if flying into the city of Quito, Ecuador before your Galapagos Islands trip, please remember that it can be cool and it can get downright cold if you go higher into the mountains. So please pack accordingly.

We recommend:

  • Light and warm Jacket or Fleece
  • A Wind & water-resistant light Soft-shell Jacket
  • A Rain Jacket or Parka (for Quito and other visits in the mountains)
  • A Hat or Baseball Cap

Hi! I am Eric, your personal Expedition Designer at Quasar. I have been a dive-master, cruise director, and a customer service manager in the past for Quasar in the Galapagos. I am also a published author, a photographer and a proud and happy husband and father to a beautiful, well-traveled daughter, Romina, and a little man named Lucas Daniel. My life’s path was carved thanks to one single trip to the Galapagos when I was 15 years old. Yes, it’s that much of a life-changer. I am easy to reach and would love to hear about the best vacation you’ve ever taken! I think I may be able to help you with the next one.
