FYI: "Galapagos Restrictions"

Countries: Galapagos, Panama

Yachtsmen visiting the Galapagos Islands will be limited to a 5 day maximum stay under new rules imposed by the new Port Captain at Wreck Bay. For several years, permission to stay up to 20 days has been granted and is still being given in Academy Bay on Santa Cruz.

Report from Tanya Leech (September 2006)" on Noonsite.

Scott Flanders of Egret responds:
Chris, Thanks so much on the Galapagos information. We had planned to land in Academy Bay with good reports from Seven Seas Cruising Association but had not heard of the Wreck Bay change. is a great planning tool as well as you know.
