Getting There, Passports & Visa Documentation:
The Galapagos Islands are located in the eastern Pacific Ocean, 605 miles (973 km) off the west coast of South America. The closest land mass is the mainland of Ecuador to the east (the country to which they belong). An overnight hotel stay is usually required and we recommend staying in Guayaquil prior to the trip. Guests board a charter Avianca flight from Guayaquil to Baltra on Thursday morning. (see flight schedule in Know Before You Go) Aerogal Airlines was recently
purchased by Avianca Airline.

Visitors must have a current passport, adequate funds to support themselves, and a return airline ticket. US citizens require a passport that must be valid for 6 months from date of entry. It is the travelers’ responsibility to ensure they have the proper visa to travel into each country on his or her itinerary as well as for re-entry and return to their country. Since regulations vary by country, contact your consulate or embassy of your country for the requirement.

Message from the President of the Galapagos Aggressor 
The Galapagos Aggressor has been operating as the premier Galapagos Live Aboard dive yacht since 1993. The yacht was custom designed, built and equipped to offer a safe and luxury dive operation. Every two years the yacht goes through an extensive dry-dock. We have been granted permits for the Galapagos Aggressor issued by the Galapagos National Park since 1994.

We want to assure our guests that we will continue to offer luxury diving and carry on our relentless effort to preserve the Galapagos marine life. This is just an example of why Aggressor Fleet has the top diving live-aboards in the world.
