Hey! Iím Jenny and I can help you plan your trip!

Iím Jenny Quijozaca, born in Galapagos, manager, and founder of Galapagos Transfers.

I know planning a trip to the Galapagos is not an easy task and I can help you with any doubt you may have regarding the islands.

It doesn’t even matter if it’s not related with the boats. Let’s keep in touch!

Is it urgent? Last minute ferry?

If you need a ferry ticket for the next 48 hours we consider that a last-minute ferry and you won’t see availability on our booking page.

That said, we can probably help you too.
So, if you need to book a last-minute ferry (, or if you have an urgent query, please don’t wait any longer and just send me a WhatsApp or an email at help@galapagostransfers.com

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I book my inter-island tickets in advance?

We recommend to book your tickets in advance and online because:

  • You secure your spaces
  • You pay $38 and can use Paypal or your credit card
  • You can do changes and cancellations

However you can only buy your tickets in town when you arrive to the islands in one of the many agencies near the pierts- Just make sure you donít leave it for the last minute, the cost will be $30 paying cash.

Where are the ports and airports in the islands?

Ports

There is a port at Isabela, Santa Cruz and San Cristobal.

Each of the islands is connected in both ways in the morning and the afternoon. Please refer to our schedules page for more information.

Airports

There are airports connecting to the mainland at:

  • San Cristobal (SCY): Located 5 minute walking from town
  • Baltra (GPS): It is located in a small island next to Santa Cruz. Transfer time to Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz) is about an hour.

Isabela island has a small airport only used for inter island flights.

How do I get from Baltra to Santa Cruz (Puerto Ayora)

Baltra is a small island located next to Santa Cruz that is used as the airport for that island (GPS).

Getting from Baltra to Santa Cruz is really straightforward as almost everyone there is heading to Santa Cruz.

  • You will need to get a bus (Lobito company) to the Itabaca channel.
  • You will cross the channel in a small boat
  • And then you need to either get a bus or a taxi to Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz).

It doesn’t seem very easy but trust me, it is easy indeed.

When planning your trip, please bear in mind that the journey from Baltra to Santa Cruz (or viceversa) is almost 60 minutes.

We have a post that details the whole process

Why can’t I book a ticket to Seymour?

Visiting the non-populated islands is something you cannot do on your own.

Those islands as Seymour, EspaŮola, Plaza, etc. are visited in either day-tours or cruises and you will always be with a naturalist Guide following the Galapagos National Park instructions.

You can book day-tours departing from each of the populated islands (San Cristobal, Santa Cruz, Isabela), check our Galapagos Travel Guide for more info.

What airport do you recommend?

There are two airports with connection to the mainland:

  • San Cristobal (SCY). 1 minute away from Puerto Baquerizo downtown at San Cristobal
  • Baltra (GPS). An hour away from Puerto Ayora at Santa Cruz.

Which one to choose? It really depends on many other details of your travel planning, the airline fares, etc.

If you are planning to visit at least San Cristobal and Santa Cruz the wiser option would be to use one as inbound and the other as outbound but as we have mentioned: it depends.

Anyway, please get in touch with us if you need help planning your trip.
