Gear and Clothing
Sunglasses, hat/baseball cap, rain jacket/poncho, lightweight cotton pants, shorts, a couple of t-shirts, swimming suits, waterproof sandals or tevas, thick sole tennis shoes, regular underwear, cotton socks and a sweatshirt for breezy nights. Suggested by not necessary are neoprene or lycra shirts to keep you warm while swimming and also to avoid getting a sunburn. Tip - if you bring polarized sunglasses, you will be able to see underwater life much clearer.
Dressing up is not required, though most of our guests prefer to dress up for diner. As a guideline dress up not too fancy, rather casual formal: a nice dress or pants and blouse for women and pants and shirt for men.
We suggest you bring a photo or video camera, binoculars, small back pack, additional batteries, SD cards for your camera with ample disk storage or bring a laptop to transfer your images. Do not pack a hair dryer as we offer these onboard.
We offer the complete set of snorkeling gear onboard for all shapes and sizes: masks, snorkels, fins and wet suits. We strongly recommend you bring a perscription mask if you need glasses for everyday tasks. If you so choose, you can bring your own snorkel gear. Not offered onboard are neoprene or lycra shirts.
Other items to bring
Insect repellent, sun lotion (we recommend high factor: 50+), personal medication, personal toiletteries, resealable bags such as zip-lock bags to keep cameras and equipment dry during excursions
Sea sickness pills or patches (Dramamine)
If you have a tendency to get seasick, please inquire with your doctor about taking seasickness pills or patches. You should not take these without consulting a doctor. You can bring your doctor perscribed medicine with you.
Baggage specifications for your Galapagos Trip
We recommend you take a soft sided bag to the Galapagos. You will only need the essentials in clothing and personal items and space is limited on board yachts. A duffel works best as it can be stored into a small drawer or closet. On flights to Galapagos you are allowed a maximum of 20 Kg (44 pounds) of luggage (excluding your hand-bag and carry on).
