What is the high season in Galápagos?
One of our most frequently asked questions is: "When is the best time to visit Galapagos?" Our answer? More or less any time!
As a true year-round destination, the High and Low Seasons in the Galapagos islands are dictated by the schedule of their visitors and not necessarily by the weather situation. You may feel that the best time of year to visit Galapagos is linked to how busy (or not) it might be. The most popular times to travel to Galapagos are at Easter time, July and August, and Christmas and New Year. These times are when the Galapagos see their highest tourist numbers. Therefore, it is higly recommendable to book in advance during those periods, in order to be certain to have your cabin on board of our ships.
In terms of the habitats and creatures you can discover, there really isn't a "better" season and there's certainly no such thing as a best time to visit Galapagos to see wildlife. Being equatorial, there are always species mating, nesting and hunting at all times of the year, and Galapags wildlife is always active!
Some of the yachts do have their own definitions of a high and low season, and offer different prices accordingly. Other yachts offer the same pricing the whole year through. Check the individual Galapagos boat listings for each different definition.
