Is there internet or WiFi access on a Galápagos Cruise?
Wi-Fi in Galápagos should be considered intermittent at best wherever you go! Most Galápagos cruises do not offer internet access or Wi-Fi on board. There are a few Galápagos Cruise ships, however, that do offer internet service on board, mostly at a (sometimes hefty) charge. You can find all ships that currently offer internet by navitation to All Galapagos Cruises and filtering for all trips that offer internet. Also, justs give us a call, we'll be very glad to help!
If you need internet connectivity during your stay in Galápagos, we recommend you purchase an Ecuadorian SIM card with an internet package. With this you can get a useful signal when staying in or sailing close to towns (for example Puerto Villamil, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and Puerto Ayora). If you do, you should then be able to connect your other devices using a feature that most modern smartphones have known as "tethering" or "mobile hotspot", which lets you use your phone as a Wi-Fi router.
