Do I need a wetsuit for snorkeling or swimming in Galapagos?
There is no requirement to wear a wetsuit when swimming or snorkeling in Galapagos, but for the most enjoyable experience we do recommend you use one.
The Galapagos islands are such a haven for undersea life because they lie at the point where warm and cold sea currents mix. This means that you can quite quickly experience water temperature changes. Wearing a wetsuit will allow you to enjoy the stunning undersea views without worry.
All of our Galapatours cruises offer wetsuit rental as an optional extra. You can pay cash to rent your wetsuit on board.
