Securing a cruise during peak times of the year.

High seasonsin the Galapagos are when the most visitors are coming to the islands for vacation.

December (especially around the holidays) and July - August are the high seasons in the Galapagos.

During these times there are several things which occur that will effect going to the Galapagos:

  • The price of flight tickets increases.
  • The price of cruises increases.
  • The availability of the ships decreases.
  • The availabity of seats on the planes decreases.

If you are wanting to visit the Galapagos Islands during these peak times, the best advice is to plan your trip / cruise in advance. This cannot be stressed enough. The majority of travelers going in these months plan their trip far in advance. This is the best way to secure the cruise you want and not just what is left. Remember all cruise itineraries are not the same and spaces are very limited; this includes spaces on flights to the Galapagos.

Last Minute Deals during High Season

In high season it is possible to get a Last Minute Deal on a cruise if there are spaces available. However usually the most economical ships and the best itineraries are sold out in advance.

Even with a Last Minute deal it is best to plan ahead! One or two weeks before your desired travel dates to the Galapagos can make a big difference in securing a Last Minute deal.

The worst thing you can do... is wait until the last minute to try and buy a cruise. During the high season this is a big mistake because everything is going to be already sold before the final days before the cruise begins. If you have non-flexible travel dates this could be a disaster! Planning in advance, even one week, will be to your advantage.

Another mistake travelers to the Galapagos make especially during High Season is flying to the Galapagos Island and looking for a deal while they are in the Galapagos. As stated above, cruises will be sold out and you could be stranded in the Galapagos without a cruise.

Another thing to consider is "How many people are you traveling with?" It is going to more difficult to secure numerous spaces on one ship. Single spaces are often the most available during the high seasons.

Flights to the Galapagos in High Season

During peak seasons buying a flight to the Galapagos Islands is not like buying a bus ticket. The seats are limited to the few number of flights which are going to the Galapagos daily.

The ships will block spaces for their clients. This means people buying a cruises are favored by the airlines in obtaining a flight through the ship. Dreamkapture Travel can help you secure your flight and will have access to seats that are not available to the general public.

Once again Planning is going to the most important thing you can do. It will be almost impossible to secure a flight one day before you want to go the Galapagos Islands.
