Register Your Pleasure Craft for Entry to the Galapagos.

Yachtgala will manage your entry permit application.

Yachtgala can guide you through the process of requesting entry to Galapagos Marine Reserve & National Park. Our specialized yacht services include obtaining entry permits for pleasure crafts.
For any boat intending to navigate from one inhabited port to another in the Galapagos, specific Autógrafo entry permit is required. Pleasure crafts visitors with an entry permit are allowed to leave the boat in the harbor while they go ashore to use local facilities, take tours and visit the Galapagos highlights.
There are four inhabited ports in Galapagos: Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (San Cristóbal) where the yachts are inspected, Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz), Puerto Villamil ( Isabela) and Baltra where the only facilities include the airport, Navy base and the fuel terminal. We highly recommend beginning the application process for a entry permit at least 6 weeks prior to the expected arrival the yacht.
