Is there internet access on a Galapagos cruise? Is there wifi on board?
Most Galapagos cruises do not have internet access or wifi on board. There are a small number of vessels that do offer this service for an additional charge, including Legend, La Pinta, and Santa Cruz II, Please note however that this will incur a hefty charge, that speeds will be slow, and there may be usage restrictions. Check the "amenities" listing for each vessel to see what is available.
On the islands themselves, internet access is rare and cellular signals limited everywhere except in the immediate vicinity of Puerto Villamil, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and Puerto Ayora. Here you may find you can access data via your cell phone or use an internet cafe or similar. If you are staying in town before or after your cruise your hotels may offer a wifi service for guests.
Remember, though, that one of the delights of your adventure to Galapagos is the remoteness of the islands and the absence of distractions from your everyday life!
