Book Day tour now or when I get to the island.

I am coming to Santa Cruz end of March. I was wondering if someone could recommend a good day tour company to North Seymour, Santa Fe or South Plazas.

I am only spending 3 days, so perhaps it is better to book now rather than waiting until we get there, right?

Any recommendation is greatly appreciated.

1. Re: Book Day tour now or when I get to the island.

You can't book individual day trips until you get to Puerto Ayora. Multi-day land-based trip packages can be arranged in advance (e.g., check out local Moonrise Travel's now-rather-spiffy Web site at http://www.galapagosmoonrise.com/ ). But with only 3 days, you're pretty much stuck with checking out what off-island trips are available the day before and hoping the ones you want are available those days. (Not all trips run every day.) Of course, you can do some things around Santa Cruz--e.g., see the Giant Tortoises in the highlands, Tortuga Bay, Charles Darwin Research Station--without a day trip.

ztsipapu, thanks for your reply but are you really sure I can only book daytrips once I get to Puerto Ayora??

If Galapagos Moonrise can't help then you could try whatever hotel you are planning on staying at. Some of the hotels can arrange day trips and may let you book in advance.
