swimming and snorkling opportunities

I've heard the water temp can be quite cold. Will there be opportunities to swim and snorkle, and should we rent wetsuit vests for the trip? We are going in June.

If you are going on a cruise then you will probably have swim/snorkel every day. If you are not used to colder waters then I would say certainly rent or bring your own wetsuits. Even if you are used to cool waters, a wetsuit can increase the time you can soend in the water.

Many boats have wetsuits for hire but not all so best to ask in advance.

If you are land based, there are plenty of places to swim and snorkel and many of the day trips include time for this.

Galapagos operators know that snorkelling is one of the favorite things to do by travellers. If you are going in a cruise usually your activities are like morning hike, snorkelling, lunch and another activity, so there is swimming and snorkelling involved everyday.

Water temp in June starts to get colder, so a wetsuit is adviced. Some cruises give this for free and others charge about $25 USD a day.
